Editor’s Notes: The Z-Coil Freedom Classic is one of the more unorthodox sneaker designs featured on Highsnobiety in recent years. Originally a running shoe developed by the brand’s founder Alvaro Z. Gallegos, the Z-Coil features a visible coil at the heel that acts like a shock absorbing spring.
The Freedom Classic's unconventional aesthetic lends itself perfectly to the current ugly sneaker trend and is a big reason why it has been seen on-foot at various Fashion Weeks in the past.
The sneaker is available directly at Z-Coil or through London-based retailer Gentlewench.
