If Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello created a “Rock Mega Stadium experience” for his last collection at the storied French fashion house, he’s now following up with some serious disco vibes.
Saint Laurent, also known as Yves Saint Laurent or YSL, depending on which rebranding era we’re in, released a pair of $3,300 stiletto roller skates, the “Anja 100 Patch Pop Pump Roller,” also available in sneaker form, according to Harper’s Bazaar (the Saint Laurent team did not immediately respond for a request for comment.) Think of them as the fashion set’s version of the early aughts’ teen favorite shoe-meets-pop-art-meets-disco-diva “Heely.”
Of course, Twitter users quickly provided commentary on the special release stilettos, which will only be available at the brand’s Paris store.

Saint Laurent has a habit of making shoes that the prompts big internet reaction. There were the $10,000 embroidered white crystal boots that debuted during Paris Fashion Week in February, and the gravity-defying no-heel shoe during that same runway show, proving the brand, if nothing else, likes to put its best foot forward.
