With its rebellious style always one-step ahead of fashion, designed for the modern street, the Urchin sneaker also features head-turning variations. Irreverent. Non-conformist. Young. Unpredictable. “Urchin”, the innovative sneaker launched in November 2018 by Giuseppe Zanotti for future generations who are always on the move, has taken on a new guise with a special series of limited editions and special drops. “I have always been attracted by the energy and fast pace of cities,” Giuseppe Zanotti explains. “Whether it’s Tokyo, Shanghai or New York, they all feature continuous dynamism combined with a free-spirited attitude. “Urchin” is an expression of that vitality, of that nonchalant attitude.”
The new ‘urban wild’ Urchin version features a ‘techno-couture’ upper in print python leather and is available in two color combinations: all-black and all white. Available from January 10th on giuseppezanotti.com, in selected Giuseppe Zanotti stores and key retailers, the new versions, both unisex, retail at 900$. The metamorphosis of the Urchin is rounded off with the exclusive Urchin Rocks version, the result of a joint creative venture with basketball star P.J. Tucker Jr. of the Houston Rockets. The style features red and black which recalls the colours of the Houston Rockets NBA team, as well as the use of ultra-refined materials such as smooth leather for the upper and black suede for the toe. This special collaboration style is a limited edition of just 150 pieces and is only available in the Giuseppe Zanotti Houston boutique, and on giuseppezanotti.com at 900$.
The previous black and white unisex models with contrasting graphic details remain a fixture, together with the women’s nude version and the men’s orange version (all 850$).
