Globe Trotter Sneaker balances sporty & relaxed lifestyle for man

Sep '08
Zegna Sport, the famed active wear of Ermenegildo Zegna, the global men's luxury fashion brand, brings to the UAE the inspirational Globe Trotter Sneaker. The new shoe merges sport-inspired design with quality and comfort, redefining the notion of luxury sportswear for the leisure needs of today's modern man.

Multifunctional is key for Zegna Sport. Whether portrayed through reversible swimwear in quick drying fabric or reversible ultra light outerwear in Aqualite and cotton cashmere. The Globe Trotter Sneaker is at the very essence of this concept with high performance cotton slip on inserts housed in a lightweight rubber shell, ideal for the man who balances a sporty and relaxed lifestyle.

The shoe consists of two multifunctional pieces which are designed to be worn together for an urban sports aesthetic, or as a separate slip-on for travel and at home leisure. The innovative, comfort-orientated inner slip-on, with its subtle, minimal design and lightweight materials, is ideal for international travel and casual comfort.

The robust EVA rubber outer-shell, created using the lightest rubber in the world, hints at a design inspiration from the worlds of professional cycling and athletics with two neat Velcro buckles, a smooth aerodynamic shape, and functional traction grips around the base of the sole.

Together the inner slip-on and rubber outer-shell form the Globe Trotter Sneaker – a shoe that is not only multifunctional, innovative and stylish; but also offers extreme lightness and comfort. Design and technological innovation are pivotal to the Zegna Sport ethos, always balancing perfectly a sportive and urban lifestyle look. Engineered fabrics and striking colour highlights are the key features of the Sport Design theme.

The Globe Trotter Sneaker thus showcases these features with its EVA rubber and technical fabric construction. Available with a jet black outer-shell and in three different slip-on colour options: jet black; urban orange or sporty silver.

The sneaker is available at Ermenegildo Zegna boutique at The Boulevard, Emirates Towers and Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, corner shops in Saks Fifth Avenue – Burjuman Centre and Harvey Nichols – Mall of the Emirates as well as select Rodeo Drive Boutiques across Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
