We don’t care who you are, or what music you grew up on–the Thin White Duke made some of the greatest music of all time during his tenure on Earth. Whether you prefer that persona or Ziggy Stardust, there’s no denying that David Bowie was one of the greatest musicians of all time, so it’s about damned time that one of the great sneaker makers built a few pairs worthy of his legacy. Vans is the perfect manufacturer to pick up Bowie’s punk runk ethos for a sneaker collection that even the Duke would be proud of. According to Esquire, the line will include four of “Vans’ most popular silhouettes, the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi, each customized in colorways inspired by some of Bowie’s most beloved albums—Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Space Oddity, and Diamond Dogs.” The Vans x David Bowie inspired collaboration will be launching in select Vans stores internationally on April 5th. We’ll be wearing each of the options on a rotating basis if the opportunity presents itself.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
