Matthieu Blazy Debuts His First Sneaker for Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta introduces its newest footwear silhouette, dubbed the "Pillow Sneaker." First teased in the luxury Italian fashion house's Autumn/Winter 2022 runway show, the release marks Matthieu Blazy's sneaker debut for the brand.

Inspired by '90s skate culture, the "Pillow Sneaker" offers a pragmatic yet playful casual style for ease of wearing. Available in a "Parakeet," "Black" or "Optic White/Parakeet" colorway, the shoe sports a classic rope lace-up, smooth leather upper and an oversized rubber midsole. Elsewhere, a signature Bottega Veneta imprinting dresses the tongue and sole, accompanying a back pull loop for a touch of comfort. Each pair, made of 100% calfskin, is produced in Italy.

Take a detailed look at the new release in the gallery above. The "Pillow Sneaker", priced at $920 USD, is now available for purchase at Bottega Veneta's store. So far, only three colorways have been revealed but we expect to see more unveiled in the coming months.
