Ermenegildo Zegna x Harry Rosen - Your New Sneakers
Ermenegildo Zegna and Harry Rosen collaborate to create limited-edition luxury sneakers.
Harry Rosen has teamed up with Ermenegildo Zegna to create a one-of-a-kind sneaker – a rare collaboration of this type for the luxury menswear brand.
“I was enthusiastic when the brand approached me with the idea to collaborate on a co-branded, limited-edition sneaker,” says Kevin Eisenberg, Senior Buyer & Merchandise Manager at Harry Rosen. “They arranged for us to work directly with the head of their leather goods design team in Milan.”
Handmade in Tuscany, the shoe features Ermenegildo Zegna’s special Vulcanizzato Flex construction, an artisanal hand-firing process that creates lightweight, flexible and durable rubber soles. For the uppers, the design team selected the finest suede in blue and off-black. “They’re perennial colours that go with pretty well everything,” says Eisenberg.
For an added luxurious touch, the heels are adorned with Ermenegildo Zegna’s signature Pelle Tessuta fabric, made with finely woven strands of nappa leather. “The Pelle Tessuta accents amp up the luxe appeal while giving the shoes a signature identity. Pelle Tessuta has become such a discernible element, found on many of Ermenegildo Zegna’s top-tiered leather products,” says Eisenberg. See how it's made here.
The sneakers will retail for $625, and only 84 pairs will be made in each colour.
