After the brand joined with Timberland for the release of some high-end leather work boots, a new pair of Gucci shoes, dubbed the 'Tiger Espadrilles,' was revealed by the upscale label.

The uppers, made from coated-canvas, boast Gucci's iconic branding, as well as the the image of a tiger that it's often associated with itself. Depicted in traditional fashion, the menacing animal's stripes are drawn as in a jagged but uniform way, while its teeth are bared in a roar.

Bright green foliage surrounds the tiger on the Gucci shoes and the background is overtaken by light beige. In order to give the casual design a bit of a more refined look, the brand lined the opening with deep chocolate leather.
