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!
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.
