Vetements gave us a sneaky look at its mega-bulky collaboration with SWEAR London earlier this year via Instagram, but now we can finally score an up-close look at the huge kicks. Inspired by ’90s rave culture, they take the chunky sneaker trend to a whole new level.
The upper is constructed from a tan brown fabric that’s contrasted by a black sock-liner and heel tabs. Grey hiking-inspired cord laces complement the outré style and Vetements’ text logo adorns the heel in a reflective finish that will light up in the dark. The obvious stand-out element is of course the massively oversized black rubber sole that features panelled details throughout.
While there’s still no concrete release information on these retro beauts yet, it does appear that they’ll be dropping soon at matchesfashion.com for $1,709 USD. Stay tuned for updates and in the meantime, why not check out Vetements’ statement summer T-shirts?
