Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have been the preferred middle-class family of Americans, and the rest of the world, for over 30 years, thanks to adventures that are as funny as they are critical of life in the US.

Each member of the family can be found on the collection's sneakers, from the Sk8-hi to the Chukka Pro for men and the Old Skool, the Era, and the Slip-on Pro.

The Simpsons also appear together as a family on certain shoes and pieces from the ready-to-wear collection like hoodies or T-shirts.

Some models are dedicated to individual characters such as the purple sweater bearing the slogan “Lisa Simpson for President” or the long-sleeved T-shirt featuring “El Barto”, one of Bart's alter egos, who seems to be running away, spray can in hand.
