Anime fans and sneakerheads are having a helluva year. With the release of Skechers’ limited edition One Piece collaboration , widespread anime fever has swept the sneaker world, and the collection has now hit London, Berlin, and cities across Europe this week. The colorful collection unites Toei Animation’s cult anime series with Skechers D’Lites, the brand’s OG style that pioneered the chunky sneaker aesthetic long before it was a trend.
After initially launching in Asia and later expanding to the US and Canada, the Skechers x One Piece collection continues its world tour on Wednesday, October 10 with an immersive launch event at White Rabbit Studio in London’s Shoreditch. Running from 7:30-11pm, the event will feature vivid installations and recreations of art inspired from the world of One Piece, including activations like an acid foil photo booth and a themed sake bar along with music sets all night from House of Pharaohs, Jamz Supernova, and Flohio performing live.
A second, smaller event is going down the following evening on October 11 in Berlin at Galerie Lacke & Farben from 7-11pm featuring musical sets from WOS, Ticklish, and Caramelo. RSVP below to attend the Shoreditch, London event now before the guest list closes.
