The HUGELY popular Netflix K-drama ‘Squid Game’ has us (and the entire world) in a chokehold – a grip we haven’t seen since, well… Tiger King… early pandemic flashback anyone?
There is (thankfully) one pivotal difference between the two viral Netflix shows and their cultural impact: Squid Game’s reinvigoration of the white canvas sneaker trend. Since its premier on September 17, Vans has seen a staggering 7,800% increase in sales of the Classic Slip-On canvas shoe, according to BossHunting.
I don’t know about you, but when I hear “white canvas sneakers” I’m instantly transported back to 2009 where the sought-after look involved your finest pair of black leggings, tucked into white crew socks pulled up to within an inch of their life.
LUCKILY… the Squid Game costume crew know a thing or two about styling (more so than our 14-year-old counterparts) and have revived the trend in a modern, effortlessly cool, but practical “carry you through a series of life-or-death games” kind of way. Take a look below to see how you can recreate the look of our sell-out Slip On canvas shoe for yourself:
