Giuseppe Zanotti has unveiled its latest silhouette, the COBRAS sneaker. The Italian luxury footwear brand has enlisted King Slime himself, Young Thug, to introduce the sneaker to the world.
The snake has become the unofficial mascot of Young Thug and his YSL Records imprint, so it’s fitting that Thugga was is the face for the new COBRAS sneaker. The men’s low-top shoe features a 3D cobra that wraps around the midsole, with its head sitting atop the toe. The shoe is available in four tonal colorways: pink, red, black, and white.
“I have always loved the symbolism of the snake,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “It is a powerful and dynamic motif I have explored in many collections, but never before on a sneaker. For the COBRAS, I wanted to infuse an element of street culture and grandeur to snake. I wanted the sneaker to feel larger than life.”
The Giuseppe Zanotti COBRAS sneaker is available now on the Giuseppe Zanotti website, priced at $1,190 USD.
