“Young Thug defies classification and stereotypes,” says Giuseppe. “He has always embraced the eccentric, the unapologetic—not only with his music but also with his fashion. He perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the COBRAS.”

“I have always loved the symbolism of the snake,” says Giuseppe Zanotti. “It is a powerful and dynamic motif I have explored in many collections, but never before on a sneaker.” He continues: “For the COBRAS, I wanted to infuse an element of street culture and grandeur to snake. I wanted the sneaker to feel larger than life.”

Available in four tone-on-tone iterations (pink, red, black and white, respectively). The sneaker will make its debut in a dynamic campaign lensed by photographer Cam Kirk and featuring Atlanta-based rapper, Young Thug. Known for his distinctive, contemporary style, the hip hop legend embodies the transformative style of the COBRAS.
