Diadora is throwing it back to the ’70s with its latest limited edition drop, paying homage to the height of American detective dramas with its aptly named “Detective” pack. Inspired by Baretta and Columbo, the release takes cues from the titular characters across three silhouettes: the B.Elite, V.7000, and N.9000. While the B.Elite and V.7000 sport a red, white, and blue make-up as a nod to Tony Baretta’s favorite sportswear (not to mention a cockatoo-emblazoned lining as an homage to the trusty Triton), the N.9000 comes draped in beige — just like Columbo’s ubiquitous overcoat. Each shoe also features a bevy of character-specific details, including heel embroideries and graphic insoles.
Fans can find all three “Detective” sneakers now at select Diadora stockists worldwide.
