Model: Chunky SEGA sneaker
Key Features: A shoe that wouldn't look out of place in a construction site, Gucci's hefty sneaker features mesh, leather and reflective panels on the upper, with workboot-style lacing. In contrast to the industrial look and feel of the shoe, a jewelled strap traverses the shoe's upper, which can be un-buttoned as an optional detail. Gucci also licensed SEGA font which appears on the tongue of the shoe, appropriately reading "GUCCI." Finally, a pull tab is found on the heel, reading "TEAM GUCCI."
The SEGA font is used with permission of SEGA Holdings Co., Ltd.
Release Date: Beginning of July
Price: €1,200 (approximately $1,430)
Editor’s Notes: After being unveiled at Gucci’s FW18 runway show in February of this year, we show a closer look at several key details from the shoe in the gallery above, plus several upcoming colorways below.
The sneakers will be available for both men and women, with the black and green colorway available for both and women treated to several other colorways including a multi-colored iteration and an all-white version.
Gucci's FW18 show also memorably included severed heads and miniature dragons.
