The Summer of the Urchin Our coveted sneaker gets transformed into the sandal of the season

Trekking never looked so good. After the successful debut last fall of our unapologetically, one-of-a-kind sneaker, the Urchin takes on a compelling new shape in the season’s outstanding, street-ready sandal. Channeling the functionality of a classic trekking style, the unisex sandal is transformed into a bona fide fashion statement through pops of color, high contrast details and, like the original, just the right amount of mischief.
“I wanted to create a shoe, a hybrid really, that could bridge style and function as well as incorporate all our House codes in a truly modern way,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “With the Trekking Urchin, we’re reaching new heights—figuratively and literally.” Featuring a chunky, flatform rubber sole detailed with the Urchin’s signature 3D spines, the sandal is crafted with a series of unexpected details.
The crisscross, strappy upper comes in a durable tech fabric and is trimmed in colorful nappa leather. A logo-engraved belt-buckle closure sits above a stylistically placed, exposed zip. While the leather in-sole and elastic Giuseppe Zanotti logo tag speak to luxury as well as comfort. Available in black with bold accents for men and women and in an exclusive, all-over white with pink accents for women, the sandal retails for Euro 695. It launches on, in Giuseppe Zanotti boutiques as well as in select luxury retailers on April 1.
