Continuing his streak of delivering unexpected, forward-thinking luxury, Giuseppe Zanotti has officially launched the newest  addition to his iconic family of footwear: the "Urchin".

Described as, "Mischievous. Unapologetic. Youthful. Unexpected.", the "Urchin" is an innovative new kick designed for "next-generation rebels and the kinetic cities they live in." Embracing the idea of the timelessly rebellious street urchin, this sneaker screams with proud, nonconformist swagger complete with a spiny sole that embodies the character in full.

Mr. Zanotti says, “I’ve always been inspired by the energy and pulse of the city. 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.”

Using lightweight technical materials and flexible neoprene, this spiky soled trainer uses graphic contrast trim and deconstructed zippers to add the perfect amount of strength inducing flair. This co-ed sneaker comes in two unisex colorways of black and white, with the women getting an exclusive cool nude shade and the gents a vivid orange.

Retailing at $850, the "Urchin" is available starting to day on giuseppezanotti.com and Giuseppe Zanotti boutiques! Peep the new kicks below:
