Giuseppe Zanotti Metal-Plated Black Leather High-Top Sneakers

8th September 2014

The Giuseppe Zanotti Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers is undoubtedly the ultimate metal-plated high-top series of its kind and sports as the leading flagship sneaker in Giuseppe Zanotti Fall Winter 2013. Bold, beautiful and beguiling, it looks and feels like the product of an Italian designer company at the top of its game.

A year since the Giuseppe Zanotti Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers was launched, it has made just as many waves as the profound classic double-bracelet series. The rigid silver-tonal metal bracelet house a fold-over velcro strap with signature-logo etched at the top vamp closure, but the real head turner feature here is the main gigantic one-piece constructed metal plaque which captures the power of luminosity, adding intrigue detailing more than the premium over contemporary double-bracelet editions.

Key specifications features a flat black leather exterior, tonal stitching, and rubber sole revolves the highest standard of luxurious materials epitomised from delicate textured finishes. The sleek hardware element accented the modernity sneaker through contrast refinement details, offering striking good looks and poise when you over step shoe game limits. “These are sneakers from the future,” said a friend who was captivated by the evocative silhouette and daylight eye-blinding mirror plates. Shop a range of diversified Giuseppe Zanotti Design men’s shoes available at multiple global boutiques in Farfetch.

But when you delve the extra large metal plaque that sit just right above the toes, it’s not such a great ideal as it first appear when footwear flexibility comes into play, as there is a bit far less practicality to go with. Other daily maintenance concerns includes the hardware rubbing into the upper vamp and cap-toe over a few wears which eventually eats into part of the delicate calf-skin finish. Nevertheless, this issue is a common Giuseppe Zanotti design imperfection that can be mitigated with a shoe polish.

I’ve always wanted the Giuseppe Zanotti Metal-Plated Black Leather High-Top Sneakers as it has been one of the most desirable and grandiose Giuseppe Zanotti high-top sneakers one can find in the marketplace. Many thanks to a devoted reader from Singapore who has convinced me to make the right decision and purchase this iconic statement piece that has delivered head-turning looks with real world usability. The best part is, they don’t make them anymore (at the moment) which encapsulates it’s rarity and questionable future residual value. Fetch the last few pairs fast! As the remaining sizes are only limited available at SSENSE for now, since the prosperous Italian designer is currently focusing on much more berserk experimental seasonal designs such as the 2014’s signature chain series, they even made a chain embellished edition which looks stunning in a spectrum of shades!

Balmain Military Embroidered-Patch Short Sleeves Shirt

5th April 2014

Short sleeve shirt has never been quite my cup of tea, but who knew that this Balmain Military Embroidered-Patch Short Sleeves Shirt had so much more potential then it was first showcased in the Balmain Spring Summer 2013 menswear collection. To tell you the truth, the SS13 was my least favorite collection, but mixing these individual essentials with statement pieces will always tick all the right boxes.

For this weekend, Maurice wears the Balmain Military Embroidered-Patch Short Sleeves Shirt with his favorite Balmain Blue Dirty Stretch Biker Denim Jeans and the ancient Giuseppe Zanotti Tri-Colour Double-Metal Bracelet High-Top Leather Sneakers that still looks mint after all these seasons! If I could recall, the last time I wore a short sleeve shirt was in high-school, almost a decade ago. The same shirt was worn by Jay-Z, and for those of you who are still looking for the biker jeans that I am wearing below, they are currently available at SSENSE.

Anyways, this was a quick write up while i’m packing away for a short holiday trip! Will be leaving to Japan in an hour’s time and will only be back to publish more by 14 April 2014! At the mean time if you feel inspired to start shopping, checkout the latest arrivals of the Balmain Spring Summer 2014 menswear at Luisa Via Roma.

Giuseppe Zanotti Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers

11th August 2013
When the first Giuseppe Zanotti’s Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers were presented earlier this year for his upcoming Fall Winter 2013 men’s collection, not only that I wasn’t impressed but it didn’t gave me the ‘wow’ factor like his double-metal bracelet sneakers. This was simply because my initial impression presumed it was overly done with the huge metal plated at the cap toe and side panels, it reminds me very much of RoboCop for some reasons – a pair of sneakers with a bullet proof-like housing and a flamboyant finish in two distinctive classic choices, gold or silver.
But after a few weeks of online releases recently – L’inde le Palais first, then came LuisaViaRoma and etceteras – I sort of grew into liking it as much as I did not though so. Especially when SSENSE has put up three pairs within this month, the Giuseppe Zanotti Navy Velvet Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers that came first was very promising, the photos are much more detailed which describes the product very well when compared to the other two first few retailers, it is the ultimate value of money sneakers you can buy from Fall Winter 2013. The dark mirco-velvet navy blue against glossy patent black and covered by the architectural gold metal-plated facade and sticky rubber soles is a shoe lovers wet dream come true. The colour combination of materials and texture is stunningly beautiful, even for the latest Giuseppe Zanotti Black Leather Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers that comes in monochromatic flavour in SSENSE is the top seller.
The best out of the best colour combination for this season has to be the Giuseppe Zanotti Red Velvet Metal-Plated High-Top Sneakers from Shoebaloo Netherlands, the dark rouge velvet represents classic royalty at it’s best when contrast against the silver plates in black patent and smooth leather (although the women’s version gets more glossy black patent leather and gold plated) – this is chocolate cherry with sugar icing. I love it so much and wished I had bought it earlier from them as they were immensely popularly, sold out in common sizes and only two pairs left in 41 and 45 – I am secretly wishing more retailers would stock this version. These shoe designs are immensely futuristic, they are a few steps ahead of time and I can bet that even after 3 years down the road these shoes will still  see their days and manage well to glue eyes and break necks. Choose your colours wisely.

Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal Studded Leather Sneakers

12th June 2013
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-orderseems 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.
LUISAVIAROMA – Giuseppe Zanotti Homme Crystal & Grained Leather Sneakers. Two side zip closures. Metal toe cap, and heel false zip closure at heel. Waxed laces with crystal studded side panels. Leather insole and lining. Rubber sole. Made in Italy.

Very much alike… I say

Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Double Bracelet White Crocodile Hi-Top Sneakers

25th April 2013
Multi-talented designer Giuseppe Zanotti has created a unique visionary sneaker that has pushed the limits of contemporary shoe design. The current Giuseppe Zanotti Spring Summer 2013 Men’s Collection offers a variety of distinctive Giuseppe Zanotti signature creations – highlighting single and double metal bracelet accents. There is one particular men’s sneaker from this season that has caught my attention.
This Giuseppe Zanotti Double Gold-Coloured Metal-Bracelet High-Top Sneaker is a real eye-catcher in it’s class. After owning my first pair of Giuseppe Zanotti’s, the brand has constitute my confidence to acquire a second pair. The gold metal bracelet on white croc is one alluring high-top – it’s genetic architecture has a seamless transition, bond together with chrome hardware and zippers that meant to looked like an extremely futuristic footwear proposition. Despite true beauty that lies in the beholder’s eyes, the definitive composition for this pair of white and gold croc sneakers fall short as the vamp is made out of a distinctive leather embossed crocodile pattern, which was created to regard as perhaps a genuine interpretation.
Rumour has it that Kanye West and Giuseppe Zanotti may have collaborated on this pair of sneakers, but there isn’t sufficient evidence available to confirm this alleged collaboration that was started by Ibn Jasper – Kanye West’s long-term personal barber and style-consultant.
