Revered sneaker retailer Concepts continues its run of 20th anniversary releases, this time tapping Diadora for a limited edition take on the N9000 silhouette. Following its cutting-edge collaborations with Nike and New Balance, this latest exclusive looks back to the 1950s fashion era for inspiration with a nod to the dapper styles of Hollywood’s leading icons. The retailer captures the essence of the gentleman era by rendering the sneaker in a sleek black and white color scheme, and a trio of lacing options in black, red and piano key. A combination of twill, premium suede, leather and mesh is applied to the construction of the shoe, while a reflective color treatment is seen across the Diadora logo. Each pair is packaged in a custom box emblazoned with a tuxedo jacket silhouette and a trifold red pocket square. The Concepts x Diadora N9000 will be available for purchase starting February 27 both in-store and online for $200 USD.
