Santoni has introduced its newest sneaker, the Innova.

A hybrid mix of street style culture and the quality the Italian luxury footwear brand is known for, Innova offers a sleek take on a running shoe. It features a round toe, lace-up fastening, a TPU stabilizer on the heel, and an outsole constructed in ultra-light EVA. The sole is in two-tones embossed rubber for the maximum grip and it features 2 cuts on the front in order to grant flexibility.

The upper comes in a combination of materials: plain calfskin, tumbled calfskin, soft suede and nappa leather; the raw-cut edges painted by hand and the orange hand-stitched details add the Santoni touch as an element of distinction of this sneaker.

Innova is light and comfortable also thanks to the soft nappa leather collar, that provides a foot hugging comfort and breathability, and to the heel pull tab that helps to fit it. The active spirit of this low top trainer is enhanced by the zig-zag stitching on the toe.

The white edition will be available in stores from July, and starting from September all the colorways will be on sale.
