It might be hard to get white slip-on Vans soon, and it’s all because of the Netflix hit show “Squid Game.” Fans of the show have been searching for items similar to the simple costumes characters on the show wear, like green-and-white tracksuits and white slip-on sneakers. Vans says sales of their white slip-ons have seen a 7,800 percent spike since the show premiered in September. The show follows a group of debt-ridden contestants who agree to participate in children’s games in hopes of winning a massive cash prize, but losing or breaking rules means they pay the ultimate price.
