Each shoe boasts a unique design of elastic bands and mini rouches, and has the respective city name embroidered on the back. “The idea of using large Pucci-coloured elastic bands matches both the brand’s aesthetic and the comfort that allows movement, exactly like the jersey for the dresses,” Laudomia Pucci, daughter of founder Emilio, tells Footwear News.
Every model of Sneakers of the World is available in the Emilio Pucci boutique of the related city and sold exclusively on the online flagship store emiliopucci.com.
