We say familiar because it’s simply the same pair that dropped back in December, only with luminous yellow writing. Nonetheless, the sneaker is still a statement-making piece (perhaps more than ever with its newfound confidence), combining a technical and typically retro aesthetic with the contemporary anti-establishment attitude that Vetements has created for itself.
This attitude is explored by the spraypainted effect given to the stamped moniker, which sits atop a base of black mesh and leather panels that form the upper. As per usual, the shoe is fitted with Reebok’s DMX Ride cushioning system in the sole unit that pushes air from the heel to the forefoot as you step, as well as a durable outsole for extra traction.
Rounding out the pair is Vetements’ signature block capital logo embossed onto the tongue, just in case there weren’t enough visual cues to remind you before.
Take a look at the Vetements x Reebok Spike Runner 200 above, and purchase a pair on MatchesFashion.com for a breathtaking $1,007 USD.
