I began wearing them right before Fast Times made 'em popular.  The original skate shoe.

Now, while standing in line to buy some more stuff at the Vans store, what do I see but a

QUEEN - JAZZ (bicycle race) BASEBALL CAP

Upon interrogation, the manager has informed me that there will be an entire line of shoes (and possibly shirts) featuring QUEEN.  Look for them to start appearing after the first of the year.

Wow.  Kinda surprised at the lack of excitement on this issue.  Oh well, y'all don't know what you're missing!!!!

A second hat is available.  Jazz and News Of The World Hats are in stores now.

I have also seen the first pair of shoes.  They are Hi-Tops, black denim with red stitching, with the Queen crest on the tongue of the shoe.  $59.99, but that will go down. 

Incidentally, the box looks like the cover from The Singles Collection.  Perhaps there's some tie-in that we are unaware of. 

Unfortunately, they were too small or I'd be posting a picture of them, too.

Hats are $20.00 each.  They are currently running their Buy 1 Get 1 half off sale, so both can be obtained for $30.00.

This News Of The World comes from Texas, but I assume all US Vans stores will have these... the factory outlets will not.

I need to get those! I wear caps all the time and have yet to find a Queen one I really like. Thanks for the heads up!

UPDATE

The Vans hats are now $9.99 on sale.  The store in the "Town East Mall" in Mesquite does ship items in the US, so that option is available.  You could probably get both shipped for around $30... which is less than retail.
