After piling on another entry to its transportation-inspired series via the N.9000 “Alternative Route” team-up with Hanon, Diadora now finds itself increasing its collaborative output this season with Incorp[HER]ated — an agency based out in New York City that champions diversity and inclusion. For this partnership, middle and high school students from the agency’s 2019 Straight to Feet workshop were tasked to design a sneaker, and the fruit of their labor is known as the Duratech Elite “LIMITLESS” collaboration.

Designed for both men and women, the silhouette is vibrant from every angle that you glance at it. For its construction, the students opt to go with a lower profile, and slap on bright blue, pink and purple mismatching overlays to represent the breaking down of gender stereotypes. Lying below are lateral and medial underlays that gradient between saturated purples towards the mid-foot to white towards the rear, while holographic logos symbolic of inclusivity sit adjacent. Branding is found via “LIMITLESS” text hits that rest along the lateral sides while Incorp[HER]ated’s logo dresses up the heel. The former is influenced by rising tennis athlete Coco Gauff who the students acknowledged for challenging ageism, sexism, and racism despite being early in her career.

Transitioning down, the midsoles are predominantly presented with a white background, but usher in a red smear towards the rear where the debossed Diadora logos is positioned.

Interested in copping? These release on February 5 for $175 USD exclusively on the Greenhouse app.
