Whoever said ‘less is more’ clearly never met Giuseppe Zanotti. The early pioneer of the ‘heel-less’ silhouette has brought back the gravity-defying footwear in his latest collaboration with Christian Cowan, the audacious celebrity dresser and NYFW heavyweight. The shoes made their first appearances on Christian Cowan’s Spring 2019 collection preview this past week.
The shoes also feature a gold wristwatch-turned-ankle-strap, as if a stiletto sans-heel wasn’t enough. Regardless, the shoes definitely take fashion’s current minimalist tendencies and turn them on their heads. “Our maximalist styles married together have created a line of shoes that will be sure to keep you watching,” Cowan said in a joint statement with Giuseppe Zanotti.
