The highlight of the collaboration is the Sk8-Hi Punk Hazard, which features a 360 degree graphic wrapped in the rear of the shoe, over the entire heel. The lateral side of the shoe represents the fire side of the island, whereas the medial represents the frozen side.

A different iteration of the Sk8-Hi shoe is in orange with iconic Wanted posters of "Cat Burglar" Nami. The purple-hued Old Skool has a graphic featuring "Demon Child" Nico Robin. The two designs are finished off with collaborative co-branding logo details over the outsoles and heels.

Another highlight of the collection is the Classic Old Skool, which features infamous devil fruits that gave superhuman powers to the characters of the anime but at the same time, also gave them the inability to swim.
