This is the first of a series of tributes to the lovely Nami.
In case there of some of you don't know who Nami is, she's the navigator of the Straw hat pirate crew. Originally a thief, she joined the Straw Hats after Luffy helped to free her from servitude to the vicious Arlong. Even still, she steals things on occasion because she's good at it.
Beginning in the Arlong Park arc she starts wearing string-up sandals and, with a few exceptions, she continues to throughout the rest of the series.
