AFEW and Diadora are coming together once again for the release of the N.9000 “Highly Addictive.” The highly-limited pair pays homage to 2017’s V.7000 “Highly Addictive,” a pair that is highly sought-after on the resell market nowadays.
The N.9000 iteration by AFEW and Diadora sports the same light green, pale red and off-white color scheme as the V.7000, and is made from premium kangaroo leather upper in Italy. AFEW, “NYC,” “DUS” and Diadora branding in tonal colors decorate the sneaker’s immaculate upper, which draws inspiration from New York City’s heavy use of raw concrete for darker overlaying sections.
Attention to detail was key in the making of this rare sneaker, as AFEW and Diadora round off the design with a leather lining, pill-printed insoles and beautifully supple leather throughout. Embroidered tongues sport the Diadora moniker, while the heel tabs are given laser-etched pill motifs taken from the V.7000.
The AFEW x Diadora N.9000 “Highly Addictive” will be limited to just 50 units — similar to the Friends and Family V.7000 — and will be sold exclusively in-store at Sneakersnstuff New York for $230 USD on September 7. Take a closer look at the highly-anticipated pair above.
