Another of the icons of the Vans and One Piece collection is the sneaker Vans Old Skool. This model represents the devil fruits with superhuman powers. Many of the anime protagonists consume them, but they have a contraindication. And it prevents them from swimming. Something that for a pirate, always surrounded by water, is important.
Another model that should be highlighted are the sports Vans Classic Authentic. With a more nautical style, this shoe stands out for its embroidery with motifs representative of One Piece and the Straw Hat pirates.
