Giuseppe Zanotti recently released the “Urchin” — an innovative, new sneaker designed for next-generation rebels and the kinetic cities they live in. The name says it all: Street urchin—a mischievous rabble-rouser— speaks to the sneaker’s nonconformist attitude. “I’ve always been inspired by the energy and pulse of the city,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “Whether it’s 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.”
