What happens when a self-proclaimed sneakerhead teams up with one of fashion’s most innovative designers? The ultimate collector’s item. Introducing “Urchin Rocks,” a special-edition sneaker co-created by Giuseppe Zanotti and Houston Rockets’ basketball star P.J. Tucker Jr. Channeling the shape and signature 3D scales of the original “Urchin” low-top, the new style has more than a few special features.
First on the design roster, the colors. As a nod to the team colors of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, the sneaker is blocked in red and black. Next up, ultra-luxe materials, including smooth leather for the upper and a black suede toe.
“I’ve always been inspired by the energy and pulse of the city,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “Whether its Tokyo or Shanghai or New York, the common thread is a non-stop dynamism mixed with an independent attitude. The “Urchin” encapsulates that vitality and unorthodox mindset.”
