The 'Cobras' Sneaker - Bold. Unapologetic. Epic. A new king sneaker takes shape.
MILAN — There’s a new king snaking to the top of the sneakerverse. To close 2021, Giuseppe Zanotti has tapped hip hop artist Young Thug to introduce its newest icon: the COBRAS sneaker. First previewed during Milan Fashion Week in September, the new men’s low-top features a 3D cobra that wraps around the body of the shoe, its head stealthily sitting atop the toe. Often used by Giuseppe Zanotti in his dress shoe collections, the long-held symbol of power and transformation comes to bold life for the first time on a sneaker. From its scaled and sculpted body undulating around the entirety of the tread to its eyes set with crystals to the snake pattern reappearing on the sole, the COBRAS rises to mythological status.
