Taking on the Vans Era Pro and laceless Slip-On, the pairs see a complete rework both visually and physically. The Era gets wrapped in bright fuchsia velvet and sits atop a clean white sole unit featuring the Jojo logo. Embroidered golden wings hit the heel cup, anime-inspired eyelet plugs are used for decoration, and a love heart is cut out and edged in gold on the tongue.
The Slip-On is understated in comparison, seeing a clean black-on-white upper with metallic gold trimming. Featuring a standout vamp zip compartment which reveals quotes from the characters, the pair again features the lateral midsole tab and opt for a white sole unit.
Both pairs feature anime-sketched insoles depicting either Giorno Giovanna or Bruno Bucciarati depending on the pair, and come in a box inspired by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s Japanese roots and Italian setting.
Head to retailers such as Bandai Fashion Collection to buy the collaborative pairs, priced at ¥9,720 JPY (approx. $88 USD).
In other news, the Sneakerwolf x ASICS “ANARCHY IN THE EDO PERIOD.” will finally get a wider release.
