It’s the dress that just keeps on giving.

J. Lo‘s famous green Versace gown from the 2000 Grammy Awards has arguably provided one of the most iconic moments in the brand’s history, with the Italian label itself even launching a full 20th anniversary collection featuring the jungle print for Spring/Summer 2020. Not only did the vivid green pattern make its way onto Versace’s signature Chain Reaction sneaker, but the lively design has now found the spotlight on the label’s distinctive Squalo model.

Inspired by the great white shark, the chunky Squalo silhouette features a defining jagged midsole that reference the creature’s jaws. The upper is crafted of leather and synthetic paneling, which gets brightened up by the familiar shades of turquoise and green from the plants throughout J. Lo’s dress. Meanwhile, the hefty brown and off-white sole provides a crisp contrast against the colorful print. In signature Versace form, the sneaker is finished off with bold logos on the tongue and sole, as well as a special cursive emblem on the heel for another elevated detail.

The Jungle-Print Squalo Sneakers are priced at €850 (approximately $995 USD) and available to shop now at 24s’s webstore.

Elsewhere for Versace, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon on its celebration of the jungle print. In January, the brand tapped none other than J. Lo herself to star in the SS20 campaign. Not to mention, the superstar had already dominated the label’s SS20 women’s runway show in a grand finale surprise.
