For decades, artist Martin Handford’s Where’s Waldo? book series has captured the attention of people who take great pleasure in scanning images of massive crowds for the sweater-clad figure. While there’s been no shortage of licensed products of the franchise over the years, Vans may have come up with one of the more novel concepts. Waldo can now be found on sneakers.

The Vans X Where’s Waldo? sneakers feature the familiar—and busy—graphic illustrations of the book series that will have you sole-searching for the character.

In addition to a beach scene, Vans also has a shoe full of Waldos, a striped pattern paying homage to his choice of apparel, and a black-and-yellow checkered pattern with Waldo’s face seen throughout.

You can grab them at the Vans website or in Vans stores. The shoes are available in men’s sizes 3.5 to 13 and women’s sizes 5 to 14.5. The sneakers range from $65 to $85, depending on style and size.
