The Tiziano Sneakers - The High Top, reinvented by Alessandro Sartori for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture.
THE HIGH TOP, REINVENTED by Alessandro Sartori for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture.
The high top, the version of the sneakers made popular by the NBA, made a comeback a couple of years ago with designers interpreting the athletic shoe in various ways to make it part of couture gym wear.
Alessandro Sartori now does it for Zegna with the Tiziano Sneakers, lending his own unique character to the footwear to create a bold new style for contemporary men. The Tiziano was revealed on the catwalk of Zegna’s Winter 2017 Fashion Show Sartori draws from the clean lines of the high top’s more rugged cousin, the ankle boot, and adds his own twist with lateral cuts and stitching. Produced in ultra-soft calf leather, the shoes have an extra-light rubber cup sole.
The attention to detail that is Ermenegildo Zegna Couture’s signature is evident all over the shoes: extra wide laces, paired with the hand-stitched travetta detail and triple stitch on the sneaker’s spoiler. On the sole, the hand-drawn herringbone pattern contrasts with a leather insert, stitched to the rubber.
Made in Italy the Tiziano is available in three colors.
