Giuseppe Zanotti is doing his part in being sustainable and we love his creativity! He presented his spring ’19 men’s sneaker collection in Milan recently, including two patchwork styles made from jeans in his own closet.

He’s taking recycled fabrics in around 60 different washes and treatments, applying a 3D collage of patchwork to sneakers and western boots. How he does it – by borrowing techniques used in the denim industry to treat his leathers, as well as painting them, bleaching them and washing them in a water machine with stones inside to create a distressed effect.

And if you don’t want to wait until next year, you can shop for Giuseppe Zanotti right now at Shopbop and at SAKS.
