As Versace notes, it takes 27 craftsmen to assemble shoes in Italy. The design features elements often found in outdoor shoes, such as rope detailing and cutouts on the upper. The use of ropes is particularly significant as it references the brand's advertising from the 80s and 90s. Thus, each pair of Mercury sneakers consists of 16 meters of crocheted rope, with artisans devoting three hours to the hand weaving and application process.
