If the idea of no longer having rock legend David Bowie with us here on Earth is more than you can bear, know he continues to live on. This time it’s through a limited edition line of sneakers released by Vans and made in the White Duke’s image. They’ll come in Van’s most popular styles, including the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Era. And each of the styles references one of four different Bowie albums starting with his 1969 self-titled record. These far-out Bowie-themed shoes will hit Vans stores on April 5.

The Hunky Dory themed shoe's iconic checks come in a fun faux fur that resembles what Bowie wore on the 1971 album cover.
Bowie's name is emblazoned across the Sk8-Hi in the same way it was on his 1974 album, Diamond Dogs.
The art from the cover of Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane is mimicked on a leather version of the iconic style.
The pattern featured on the Era is pulled directly from Bowie's 1969 self-titled album.
