Hot Pick Of The Day: Barneys New York Launches Exclusive Zegna Collaboration
Today Barneys New York launched the second installment of the Barney New York Sole Series of 2018, partnering with Italian heritage brand Ermenegildo Zegna to release two exclusive versions the Vulcanizzato sneaker. Utilizing hand-burnished suede in either grey or light brown, these exclusive pairs have an artisanal touch.
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.
The sneakers retail for $595 and are now available on Barneys.com as well as select Barneys New York stores.
