Designer Giuseppe Zanotti designs the Urchin sneakers that draws inspiration from what is explained to be the "energy and pulse of the city." The new sneakers boast a unique design, spotlighting the soles as it looks scale-like, which is what influenced the name of the shoe. The dynamic design captures the energy of urban environments and takes unconventional approaches of sneaker construction.

The Urchin shoes are produced in both men's and women's sizes and feature colorways of black or white for both styles, an exclusive orange for men's and an exclusive nude for women's. The uppers are constructed from neoprene materials and are complete with contrasting trimming. The enclosure system feature double zippers in a deconstructed form on the sides and laces that weave through them.
