Besides Jimmy Choos, Giuseppe Zanotti is another luxury shoe brand that used to serve women exclusively but of late has been making inroads into the men’s shoes space. Since its launch not too long ago, the line has taken the world of male shoe lovers by storm and can be spotted on a legion of celebrities as well as street-style rockstars. There exist a million and one factors that contribute to its success, but from my personal observation, Giuseppe himself has been able to seamlessly fuse the bling-bling art with the well-documented Italian fashion refinement. To put it another way, the Zanotti shoes have that Italian flashy-but-in-a-good-way flair about them. The Italian designer once described his women’s shoes as hot. But you know what? That still is a very apt description when we look at this knock-out pair of men loafers. These low-top suede loafers have a bajillion cone and dome stud embellishments on them. Normally, any pair of shoes whose price tag is equivalent to a month’s rent in NYC or four months’ groceries and food in the third world would instantly make me feel like I was being electrocuted, but these shoes prove that an exception really exists. I’m not a bit fazed by the fact that they cost a whooping $1,350 because honestly, do we have any right to expect anything less than that for the level of creativity and craftsmanship that went into producing them? If you happen to be a trust fund baby or bag at least a hundred grand per year, hop over to SSENSE for these Giuseppe Zanotti Black Studded Suede Buckled Loafers. For the rest of us, we can look but we can’t touch.
