After creating the high-performance rubber sole, the sneaker is hand-polished and the upper is stitched by a skilled artisan — top to bottom, inside and out — 100% made in Italy.

Another detail that you’ll only find on this collaboration is the Pelle Tessuta leather heel patch. That art of weaving leather into fabric is exclusive to Ermenegildo Zegna and this exceptional craft creates a luxurious design for the two sneakers.
