Vans has launched a range of sensory-inclusive footwear ahead of Autism Awareness Month in April.

On Wednesday, the sneaker brand announced its new Vans Autism Awareness Collection, which has been specifically designed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in mind.

According to the company, the collection of sensory-friendly sneakers, created in partnership with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards, includes elements such as a “calming colour palette and design features that focus on the senses of touch, sign and sound”.
