The UK’s END. pairs up with Diadora for an opulent remake of the sneaker brand’s V.7000 sneaker. Decked out in bold hits of red and gold, the Italian-made sneaker’s design was motivated by the luxury of opera houses.
Mirroring the red velvet of opera seating with royal red suede, the shoe’s upper features tonal detailing. Bold “END.” and “Made in Italy” detailing on the tongue is matched with yellow leather on the heel, which also sports patches of gold to further underline the sneaker’s ornate influence. Gold speckles appear on the midsole — analogous to confetti tossed at the conclusion of a play — while the opera’s tasseled curtain is reflected in braided rope laces. The extravagant package is rounded out by individually numbered, bespoke packaging, which includes a velvet box and travel bag.
