When one is on the hunt for the ultimate specimen of sophisticated footwear, one usually needs to look no further than Europe. American retailer Barneys New York and Italian shoe experts Ermenegildo Zegna collaborate on a 2018 collection of fashion-forward and contemporary casual sneakers.
Ermenegildo Zegna is a family-run business that handcrafts sleek and sophisticated footwear with high-end materials in a workshop in Italy. For the collaboration with Barneys New York, the Europeans rework their classic Vittorio silhouette. The result is an exclusive sophisticated footwear design, called Vulcanizzato. Boasting a soft and hand-brushed suede upper in a gray or light brown, the exquisite casual sneakers incorporate a subtle detail of a leather heel patch. Mixing artisanal touch with high-end retail, the BNY Sole Series is bound to get some attention from consumers.
