Giuseppe Zanotti launches children’s shoe line

Italian luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is launching a children’s line called Giuseppe Junior!

The brand is taking a short break from designing fancy adult sneakers and sexy stilettos to make adorable shoes for toddlers.

“I’m very enthusiastic about this new venture,” Zanotti told WWD. “Challenges are vital for me and stimulate my creativity. In the past, I have designed children’s shoes for my clients and celebrities such as Beyoncé, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Karolina Kurkova. Their children were some of my first little fans. Delighted with the growing popularity of these styles, I thought it was the right time to create a range for little fashionistas and I loved translating my designs into a first junior collection.”

Metal hardware and crystal embellishments are some of the details that will be on the seven signature bar buckle sneakers for boys and girls. The collection will be available for pre-order on May 2 at
