They will be more impressive than their live-action adaptations…
One Piece is coming to a climactic point of the story with the entrance of its final arc near episode 1061. However, the celebrations do not stop at Eiichiro Oda’s work, as evidenced by his latest collaboration with VANS, the well-known sneaker brand, which contains many emblematic elements of the franchise that will make you want to buy them as soon as possible.
Hopefully, we’ll have these new sneakers soon, a surprisingly stylish joint effort with SKECHERS, as Vans is about to drop a pair of Straw Hat-inspired Authentics. Much more reserved than what his fans have created over the years, One Piece x Vans Authentic is inspired by the nakama of the future pirate kingas well as in his characteristic straw hat as can be seen in the type of fabric it has.
The latter’s influence is evident in the shoe’s construction and details, which mimic both the tan fabric and the headwear’s red band. Then at the top the top is covered with the jolly rogers (pirate calacas) of every member of the crew except the most recent, from Zoro to Brook. According to information from Sneaker News it seems that the release date is scheduled for November 11, 2022, just over a month at the time of this article.
Another interesting detail is that on the tongue of this pair of official Vans and One Piece sneakers there is a Wind Rose, an important element for maritime trips. Monkey D. Luffy set sail for the first time, we have witnessed countless adventures, well-anticipated plot developments, and one of the longest and most significant arcs in the entire series. Now, according to Oda himself, the “Final Saga” is underway, and I, and the rest of the fanbase, can’t help but get excited that the Straw Hats’ journey is coming to an end. However, the most annoying thing is that One Piece has seen only a few sneaker collaborations in the last quarter century..
One Piece is about to reach a great story arc
One Piece has become even more interesting after Kaido’s defeat. In the last chapters, we have seen Shanks approach Luffy and at the same time the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates has become one of the four emperors. On top of that, we saw Mihawk, the legendary swordsman from the Grand Line, join Crocodile and Buggy’s new group, Cross Guild. Now, fans are eager to see the fallout from this unusual team-up, and if we’re lucky, we might even see Mihawk make a brawl appearance soon.
All the main characters in the series got new rewards. Since Luffy is now one of the legendary emperors, his bounty is over 3 billion berries. At the same time, Mihawk flaunts an impressive bounty of around 3.5 billion. But, the most shocking revelation of the chapter above was definitely Buggy’s bounty of 3.1 billion.
Rayleigh believes that he can no longer take on Blackbeard at his current age and strength. As such, the conversation turns to the new pacifists in the Navy. Someone points out that these new weapons are the supposed replacement for the abolished warlords, and the Hancock sisters also attest to its durability. After all, the pacifists supposedly have not suffered even a small scratch during their brief fight. The most curious development, however, is the fact that one of the pacifists bears a striking resemblance to Hancock when he was a child.
Meanwhile, a Navy ship is reporting on the events that unfolded during its attack on Amazon Lily. They broadcast their plan to proceed and dock at Egg Head. However, they are no longer complete, as One Piece Chapter 1059 ends by revealing that the Blackbeard Pirates have kidnapped Kobythe Hero of the Rocky Port Incident.
