BTS fans are applauding Suga‘s meaningful choice of footwear.
On October 28, BTS went on a surprise shopping trip at the MAP OF THE SOUL pop-up showcase in Seoul. Most of the members wore BTS brand clothing, such as Jungkook‘s “FAKE LOVE” hoodie…
…and V‘s “ON” cardigan, but Suga’s shoes can’t be purchased at BTS’s store.
Suga is wearing a pair of Vans from “The Love Pack”. Vans released this limited-edition two-piece collection last summer to celebrate New York’s diversity.
The collection has two different shoe styles with the same pro-LGBTQ message; this Sk8-Hi model that Suga is wearing…
…and these checkered Slip-ons.
Each pair of shoes has the word “love” translated into different languages in colorful fonts.
Suga most-likely purchased his shoes in New York City last year or in early 2020. “The Love Pack” is sold exclusively in-store at Vault by Vans at 219 Bowery Street.
Many fans are now praising Suga’s fashion choices and explaining why it’s so important to them.

no cause what rly gets me is how yoongi chose to wear those vans when they knew they would see armys irl for the first time in months,,,, and have lots of photos/videos taken of them that would end up online,,,,, he really wanted to remind us we're loved
