Selling out fast at LUISAVIAROMA.com
, this particular pair of Giuseppe Zanotti which was recently introduced to Luisa Via Roma’s Fall Winter 2013 pre-order
seems to be the most popular piece out of the entire Giuseppe Zanotti men’s collection. Only a few sizes left till it is officially sold out for the season (not unless LVR restock them). Quite an expensive pair of sneakers if you are buying from Australia, which retails for A$2599 (similar pricing with Harrolds Australia) while United States gets them significantly cheaper at $1850, approximately 25% less!
The first time I saw these on LUISAVIAROMA.com
, it instantly remind me very much of the late Christian Louboutin Black Patent Pik Pik Sneakers
from Fall Winter 2012. Instead of black glossy plastic pyramid studs and spikes, this pair of Giuseppe Zanottis features sew on dark crystals mix with black finished cone studs in various sizes, similarly it carries the same charisma as the Pik Pik.
No doubt they do look good and will be a real eye catcher on the streets. However I felt that the metal cap toe design in particular doesn’t quite compliment the overall shoe aesthetic purpose, dont you think so? It’s placement on the front and the embedded logo at the tongue poses an awkward stance. It would have been much better if the cap toe had the same crystal studded design as the sides panels does, add on with Giuseppe Zanotti’s prominent double metal bracelet would have made this pair sneaker of the year.
