Hear the word “anime” and the obvious classic of One Piece would probably pop into the heads of any self-respected geek. Here’s a piece of good news for avid fanatics of the long-running manga: you can now show off your fandom with these Straw Hat Pirates-inspired kicks from the new Skechers D’Lites X One Piece collection!

Following the epic success of its first collaboration last year, Skechers has once again teamed up with the legendary anime series to debut a new range in line with their next-generation Skechers D’Lites 3.0.

An update of the footwear brand’s iconic chunky silhouette, their latest offerings feature all-new colourways that pay homage to crowd-favourite characters Monkey D. Luffy, Portgas D. Ace, Trafalgar Law, Jinbe and Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard). For the eagle-eyed One Piece aficionados, you might even notice subtle touches incorporated into the designs such as the monochrome square motifs reminiscent of Jinbe’s coat.

Besides the One Piece detailing, the D’Lites 3.0 also boasts a chunkier outsole that gives a modern twist to the retro aesthetics, complete with a smooth leather upper and various mesh panels to ensure comfort and breathability without compromising on style.

A pair of Skechers X One Piece sneakers will set you back $159, with US sizes 7 to 13 for men and 5 to 10 for women. Here’s a closer look at the designs:

Take note that quantities are limited, so you might wanna snap ’em up quick to score exclusive bragging rights.
