Initially released in November of last year, the “Urchin”, from Italian footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti takes a conceptual approach to the deconstructed sneaker. Inspired by the city, the exposed architecture of the shoe mimics the sprawling infrastructure of the urban landscape, with its external laces and zip linings.

After the previous black and white colorways that were available at launch, and the neon orange that followed, the latest drop sees the designer experiment with a python pattern leather, snakeskin texture for the upper. Arriving in black or white colorways, the unisex sneakers retain their distinctive silhouette and neoprene, 3D-printed “spiny” sole.

Take a closer look in the gallery above, and to grab a pair of the sneakers which retail for €650 EUR ($750 USD), head over to the Giuseppe Zanotti web store now.
