There's a new show in town and it's all about "Squid Game."

In fact, since it's released last month, the Netflix show has sparked a spike in sales for white slip-on Vans.

According to UK-based shoe tracker The Sole Supplier, sales of the all-white Vans slip-ons “have increased by a whopping 7,800 percent. A shoe normally worn by skaters, now everyone and their dog wants a pair in their collection. Not only do lovers of the show want to channel Sae-byeok vibes, they also want to make sure their Halloween fits are on points this year.”

In the series, hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits and with deadly high stakes.

So now, well wait and see if "Squid Game" will be a popular Halloween custom in a just a few weeks.
