New Jersey-based sneaker/streetwear retailer Packer is sending 2019 off with a bang by linking with Diadora for one final collaboration before the year ends: an N.9002 dubbed the “Molveno.” With an ultra-premium build and a crisp colorway inspired by the world-renowned Lago di Molveno and the breathtaking Italian Alps, the shoe is a sharp two-pronged nod to Italian craftsmanship and Italy’s natural beauty.
Featuring subtle blue and grey hues, the “Molveno” blends a sporty mesh toebox with a premium pigskin suede upper. Diadora’s signature Fregio logo is done up in alternating fashion, taking on a shade of blue suede on the lateral side and a natural tan leather on the medial side. More branding is provided by laser-etched graphics on the heels and tongues. Even the innards are premium, with both the quilted insole and smooth liner dressed in a soft tan leather. Bone-colored midsoles and outsoles complete the look, and the shoes come packaged in a gold box.
The Packer x Diadora N.9002 “Molveno” will release on December 19 at 12 PM ET via Packer’s webstore. The MSRP is set at $220 USD.
