Following the release of its Wonder Woman-inspired collection last month, Valentino is bringing more beloved superheroes into the mix.

The Italian luxury brand has unveiled Spider-Man, Batman and Superman sneakers for both men and women. The leather low-top sneakers have each superhero’s emblem on the toe, pyramid studs on the heel and three Velcro straps.

The hefty price tag — $895 each — means the buyer had better be a devoted fan. For its Wonder Woman collection, Valentino revamped its classic Rockstud silhouettes with star studs.

According to a release from Valentino, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli wanted to pay “tribute to all women, for their capacity of continuously balancing many things in life.”

Italian artist Solo — known for his takes on superheroes — was on hand for a live art installation at Valentino’s Fifth Avenue location and also painted ones in Milan and Rome.
