After dropping off a pair of sturdy black combat boots earlier this season, Vetements has now released its latest pair of classic high-top sneakers. Giving the style its usual avant-garde touch, the brand has updated the shoes with a splashy graffiti design and colorful contrast soles for a cheerful aesthetic.

The sneakers are crafted of canvas and featured with an all-white base. Vibrant graffiti-like text wraps around the side panels and heels of the shoes, spelling out “HARDCORE” and “HAPPINESS” in bright shades of pink, orange, purple and blue. Alternating pink and neon green rubber soles offer even more vivid elements to the model.

Meanwhile, tonal white laces maintain a streamlined look along the upper. The shoes are then finished off with Vetements logos throughout for a hit of branding.

Priced at $970 USD, Vetements’ “Hardcore Happiness” High-Top Sneakers are available now from select retailers including SSENSE’s website.
