Hirohiko Araki's anime series, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure joins forces with Vans on a collaborative range of sneakers that celebrate its story arc, 'Vento Aureo/Golden Wind.' The sneaker capsule highlights the characters Bruno Bucciarati and Giorno Giovanna.

The silhouettes that serve as the foundation of the range are the Era Pro and the Slip-On sneakers -- the Era Pro is constructed from a fuchsia velvet material before decorated in embroidered details that recall Giono's hair. There are also golden heart cutouts on the tongue and weathered out eyelet plug that nod to Giono's ladybug outfit. The Slip-On sneakers are constructed from canvas materials and feature a contrasting spoon graphic that references Bruno's overall look. Additional details include the golden trim and bold vamp zippers that nod to Bruno's Stand Stick Fingers. When the zipper unzips, it unveils a quote nodding to the character as well.
