Giuseppe Zanotti’s signature Talon high-top sneaker was crafted from leather in white or pastels, including baby pink and baby blue, and enriched with Mock’s graffiti-style “Sorry” logo. The logo is also overprinted on the image of a colorful boardgame on a T-shirt and a hoodie. Prices range from $350 to $1,190.
“I love how both the sneaker and the ready-to-wear act as a canvas for these highly graphic elements,” said Zanotti, who praised Mock’s personal style and attitude. “Evan is a creative force and possesses true character. He has a distinct style all his own that speaks to a new generation. Nothing about him is forced, it comes naturally — laid-back but instantly noticeable.”

Zanotti and Mock first met in Milan in early 2020. They immediately clicked and decided to collaborate on a project. “Giuseppe is full of imagination and open to experimenting,” Mock said. “I loved working with him on the design — his eye is in the details.”
To support the launch of the capsule, Mock and Zanotti also created a campaign, including videos and images, where the actor poses and moves on a watermelon red backdrop.
