Squid Game never stops breaking the internet. The new Netflix series, available since September 17, keeps making news in the face of fan fervor (and violence).
Today we learn that the South Korean series is now causing online shoe shortages. And for good reason: the whole planet seems to have decided to dress up like the Squid Game characters for Halloween, reports Capital.
97% increase in searches for Vans
Thus, several models of white sneakers are in high demand online. According to statistics from the Sole Supplier site, relayed by Variety, sales of the shoes have increased by 7,800% online. The volume of Internet searches for white Vans Slip-On, which strongly resemble those worn by characters in the series, is up 97%.
To complete the costume, the green jogging suits worn by the participants of the “squid game” are also very sought after. The outfit has even been out of stock several times on Amazon, but the suppliers had planned ahead.
A similar phenomenon affects the red suits of the “game masters” of the series: searches have increased by 62% for this garment in a few weeks. On social networks, tutorials have even flourished to learn how to concoct your own disguise, from shoes to the mask with a round, square or triangle.
