Beloved actor and rapper Kid Cudi was the focus for the design of a new pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers -- making for a simplistically lavish shoe that carries a quality make that's instantly evident.

Although its not made explicit how exactly Kid Cudi inspired the Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers, his linkage to them perhaps comes from his own understated style choices. The design carries this minimalist theme throughout, with a sleek all-black Italian leather upper and a stark white sole to contrast it.

Meanwhile, clean stitching and artful branding is engraved onto the tongue and toes of the Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. Lastly, the oversized Velcro straps that hang over the upper give it a look that's diverse from others of its kind.
