Great style, check. A killer smile, check. A subtle fashion statement, check. Gigi Hadid always looks like the stylish It girl she is, whether she’s on the runway or in the airport. The blond model was photographed in Tokyo recently, where she greeted fans looking gorgeous as always, despite a little jet lag.
She accessorised her laid-back outfit with her favourites—a choker and large sunglasses—but her black suede boots stole the show. They may look like a pair of nondescript comfy flat ankle booties worthy of an intercontinental flight, but just like her tiny gold necklace, these double-zip Giuseppe Zanotti shoes have Zayn Malik written all over them.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the musician was collaborating with the Italian brand on a footwear collection, and lucky for Gigi, the model got her hands on a pair before the rest of us. The “Zigi” style designed by her boyfriend are not only versatile when it comes to style—the double-zip detail is a subtle design feature that gives them an edgy vibe and makes slipping them on a breeze—but we’ve never seen a pair of unisex boots with a more spot-on name.
Check out Gigi’s boots we can’t stop talking about below.
