There's a new Jumpman in town, and it isn't Drake. With the launch of special limited edition "Jump R18" sneakers designed exclusively for men, luxury footwear and fashion designer Giuseppe Zanotti continues to build on his line of futurustic "Light Jump" sneakers. To be a Jumpman, there needs to be a certain comfort to your sneakers that gets you on your feet, hyped up and ready like Future (sorry again Drake). Sporting an upper in breathable neoprene, nappa leather inserts and a cushioned rubber sole, the Jump R18 guarantees the shock absorption and feathery touch you need as you walk it back. The distinct comfort and lightness perfectly complement the edgy, iridescent colours of the shoe, which come in brilliant shades of red, black and white. WIth a Bauhaus-like graphic design, sporty rear ribbing, elsastic bands and contrasting details, the sneaker gives you the perfect balance between simplicity and elegance. The final touch comes in the form of Velcro applications found on the top of the shoe. There, you'll see personalized straps engraved with rubberised inscriptions in contemporary gothic-style font. If you want to be your own man, the straps are customizable and can be changed any time, with a war of words ensuing between brand fans who choose "Giuseppe Zanotti" and trend-setting fashionistas opting for 'FW/2018' wording. Man, them boys up to something.
