Emilio Pucci’s New Sneakers Are a Trip Around the World

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

Emilio Pucci sees the world in color. The Italian design house, best known for its abstract prints and bold color palettes, bowed a limited-edition collection of sneakers inspired by major world cities.

The “Sneakers of the World” collection includes 11 women’s sneakers based on cities: Milan, Miami, Seoul, Florence, Rome, Paris, London, Dubai, Moscow, Hong Kong and New York.

Each sneaker, made with an elastic upper, is styled using a unique color combination inspired by the destination. The New York sneakers’ yellow, cobalt blue and magenta upper captures the city’s vibrancy, while the Paris shoe’ pastel colorway is a homage to the metropolis’ gardens, architecture and sweets.

Each city’s name is embroidered on the heel of each sneaker. Sneakers will retail for around $500 in Emilio Pucci stores in the featured cities and online.

City-themed footwear is becoming a summer trend. Irregular Choice recently launched a collection inspired by U.S. cities.
