One Piece is one of the most well-known manga ever. The legendary Eiichiro Oda wrote and drew the series, which has been going on since July 1997. Since then, there have been more than 103 tankobon volumes.
This Authentic is a must-have for manga, anime, movies, and video game fans. The upper is woven in a way that looks a lot like Luffy’s signature straw hat. The crossbones of the whole crew, including Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Franky, and Brook, are printed all over the shoe.
Everything is tied together with rope laces for a ship-like look, and it all sits on a creamy vulcanized rubber midsole with a single red stripe that goes all the way around the outside. The shoe is finished with a bright blue co-branded insole that looks like the oceans and seas.
The retail price is still to be determined, but you can get these in men’s sizes from Vans and a few other online and in-store retailers in the coming months.

One Piece is one of the longest-running mangas of all time, with 1061 chapters. The anime version is just as extended, with 1034 episodes, and its 1034th episode just aired this week.
Since Monkey D. Luffy first set sail, we have seen a lot of adventures, plot twists that we could have seen coming, and one of the longest, most essential arcs in the whole series.
Now, Oda says that the “Final Saga” has begun, and I, along with the rest of the fanbase, can not help but feel sad when I think about the Straw Hats’ journey coming to an end.
Worst of all, though, is that One Piece has only been paired with a few sneaker brands in the last 25 years. But soon, we will have much more than customs and a surprisingly good collaboration with SKECHERS (look it up) because Vans is about to release a pair of Authentics inspired by the Straw Hat crew.
The One Piece x Vans Authentic is much less wild than what fans have made over the years. It is based on the future pirate king’s nakama and signature straw hat. Both the light tan weave and the red band on the hat can be seen in the shoe’s design and details.
Then, on top, the upper is covered with the jolly rogers of every crew member except the newest, from Zoro to Brook. See below for an early but detailed look at how the two groups will work together. From the sticker on the box in the picture, it looks like the release date is set for November 11, 2022.
