Giuseppe Zanotti Rw70001 Review
If you are in the market for a great looking pair of shoes that will catch anyone’s eye then you might want to consider the Giuseppe Zanotti Rw70001 sneakers. They have a very unique look to them that will definitely stand out at any event. The fun color options and metallic leather materials make them a great looking choice for those who want to stand out above the crowd. They do have some downfalls, but most things do. They are not the most comfortable pair of shoes right out of the box but that can typically be fixed with the addition of an insole for added padding. There are some durability problems but as long as you take care of the shoes properly then they will last a while, although maybe not as long as you would have hoped for. Overall, though, they are a great looking pair of shoes that customers adore.

The leather upper, however, does give you a decently comfortable in-shoe feel which customers can appreciate. They are flexible and give you a decent amount of breathability which is important. Having a pair of shoes that allows for decent airflow is great because it can allow the air into the foot chamber keeping your feet cool on warmer days. It can also help keep your feet dry because the air can get in then it means that the sweat from your feet will be able to evaporate more quickly and escape the shoes, reducing the chances of walking around all day with wet and soggy socks and helping to promote a healthy environment inside of your shoes.
These sneakers have a rounded toe silhouette and a traditional lacing system that uses blind eyelets as well as dual functioning zippers on the sides of the shoe. The zippers are not just a fashion statement, they are also there to help when putting the shoes on or taking them off. Additionally, they have a pull tab on the back of the heel to add to the look and functionality of the shoes.
Additionally, there is a soft and smooth leather lining inside of these shoes to help give you a more pleasant feel while you are wearing them. It does not make up for the lack of cushioning, but it does help a little bit.
They do have a relatively soft lining in them that gives you a decent in-shoe feel, however, the side zipper can cause some problems for your feet inside of the shoe. The seems can rub uncomfortably on your feet, causing irritation and blisters, making you not want to wear the shoes again in the future. This can usually be prevented with wearing socks, so customers do not think that it is too big of a deal.
The metallic leather uppers of the shoes might look nice and make a great fashion statement, but they are not designed to last. Since the leather is shaved thin to make room for the metallic coating on top of it, it just cannot take us much of a beating before it starts to wear down. Even if you do take exceptional care of them, which most customers do, it is only a matter of time before the metallic finishing start to come off of the leather all together, leaving you with a dull looking pair of sneakers.
That being said, the Giuseppe Zanotti Rw70001 shoes do not fall into either category and can be found somewhere in the middle. They are a casual and fashion sneaker and as such you do not need to worry about them staying too light as you most likely will not be doing a lot of running in them. They have some extra bells and whistles added to them for aesthetic reasons which can help contribute to the weight. They are not the heaviest shoes on the market but they do have a little bit more weight on them than the average shoe. Weighing in, on average, at 1 pound and 2 ounces for a US Women's size 9. Keep in mind that this measurement is for a single shoe and not the pair.
In the case of the Giuseppe Zanotti Rw70001 shoes, you are going to want to pay special attention to what size you order. They are made in Italy and as such are sold in European sizes. If you are unsure as to what size you should purchase you can always consult a sizing chart and/or a conversion chart so you can be sure to get the perfect fit the first time you order them. They are running true to size so that is going to help take some of the guesswork out of deciding which size is going to be perfect for you.
These sneakers are going to help keep your feet locked into place thanks to the traditional lacing system and the dual functioning side zippers. You can be sure that your feet are going to stay securely locked into the shoes. You will not have to worry about slipping and sliding around inside the sneaker, or worse, completely slipping out of your shoe altogether which could cause you to fall and injure yourself or others.
As for arch support, unfortunately, these shoes do not offer any. There is only a little bit of padding in the midsole and that is not enough to give most customers the support that they need. You can purchase additional gel inserts for added support if you want to, but you will not get it right out of the box.
