Italian footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti has unveiled his latest sneaker design, which takes an equal number of cues from the urban landscape as from its aquatic namesake. The Urchin sneaker features a lightweight, neoprene body trimmed with 3D rubber “scales” that mimic the spines of sea urchins. Deconstructed double zips, that wind around and through the laces, are a reference to the design house’s industrial legacy, creating a tangled, intentionally hectic silhouette.

The sneaker is available in black and white colorways in unisex sizes, and is on sale now at Giuseppe Zanotti stores and the brand’s web store, for €650 EUR, ($743 USD).
