JoJo's Gionrno, Bruno Inspire Unique Vans Sneakers
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Sneakers brand VANS is collaborating with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind for some original, stylish footwear. The collaboration includes two designs; one based on Giorno Giovanna and the other on Bruno Bucciarati.
Giorno's design uses pink velvet and is decorated with a ladybug motif on the front, just like his suit. The shoe's tongue was hollowed out in a heart shape and a golden feather pattern is embroidered on the heel.
Bucciarati's design is white with the same teardrop-like pattern throughout. There is a zipper on the front that when unzipped reveals the phrase "Are you ready for this? I know I am," and "Arrivederci" which means "Goodbye" in Italian.
Each pair of shoes costs 9,720 yen (US$88) including tax. The sneakers can be pre-ordered at the Bandai Fashion Collection web shop until June 23 and orders are expected to ship in July.
