Squid Game sparks ‘7,800 per cent' sales surge in Vans triple white shoes

Asia's Tech News Daily

Netflix’s latest mega hit Squid Game has taken the world by storm, and so has its costumes.

Since the premiere of the Korean drama, Vans has seen an incredible 7,800 per cent rise in sales of their white slip-on shoes, according to data from Sole Supplier.

The “Triple White” shoes, that were popular in the early 2000’s and in skate culture, aren’t the only items flying off shelves.

The green utilitarian tracksuits worn by the players as well as red boiler suits, yellow T-shirts, orange dresses, and knee-high socks inspired by the creepy doll have also spiked in sales.

Online searches for red boiler suits grew by 62 per cent in recent weeks, according to reports.

It’s expected that Squid Game-inspired Halloween costumes will be all the rage this year.

The hit thriller follows a group of players who compete in a series of childhood games for a multimillion dollar prize.

While a second season of the show has yet to be confirmed, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk recently discussed ideas for a potential follow-up.

“One (idea) would be the story of the Front Man,” Hwang said, referring to the masked man who oversaw the tournament shown in the first season.

Wi Ha-joon, who plays detective Jun Ho, also recently spoke about the possibility of a follow-up and his hopes of returning to the show which has become the first Korean drama to top Netflix’s top 10 weekly most-watched program.

And the stars, including model HoYeon Jung, have since rocketed to fame.

According to data from HypeAuditor, her Instagram account has grown by 12.5 million followers since the show launched on September 17.

Jung’s Instagram account grew from 410k followers on September 17, to 13 million followers on October 4.
