Fans of Jennifer Lopez‘s iconic green Versace dress from the 2000 Grammys dress can now own a piece of fashion history.

The luxury label behind the gown, which famously launched Google Image search, has teamed up with lifestyle brand Concepts to create a limited-edition version of its “Chain Reaction” sneaker inspired by the pop star’s memorably risqué gown.

The shoe — which is being released in honor of both Lopez’s 50th birthday and the dress’s 20th anniversary — features the same green jungle print as the original, with a nude tongue meant to mimic the gown’s extremely plunging neckline.

In 2015, Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt revealed that “at the time, [Lopez’s dress] was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted — J.Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”

The sneaker retails for $1,075 and is available beginning on Friday in both men’s and women’s sizes exclusively at Concepts’ Boston and New York stores and on its website.
