[[[ happy anniversary!! ]]] barcelona-based shop 24 kilates is scheduled to launch part one of its diadora collaboration tomorrow with the n.9000 "sol." the sneaker's overall theme, "sol y sombra," is based on the seating in a bullfighting arena where spectators can sit under the sun (sol), shadow (sombra), or a combination of both (sol y sombra). the second and final n.9000, appropriately nicknamed "sombra," graces issue 22 of sneaker freaker spain. the vintage runner features a tan suede that starts at the heel and works its way to the sides. light grey takes over a majority of the quarter panel and toe box, while a contrasting black completes the "sombra" theme nicely by covering the entire lining, tongue, and eyestay.
[[[ happy dia-versary!! ]]] to commemorate all gone's 10th anniversary, parisian creative agency la mjc teamed up again with legendary italian sneaker brand diadora to give birth to a series of kicks paying homage to the book, with color iterations directly inspired by its differents covers.
the ninth installment of the "all gone" diadora series is a tribute to the all gone book, published by la mjc in 2011.
la mjc "all gone 2011" diadora n9000 is entirely made with cheetah faux-hair, mixed with premium leather and seat on a d**n sexy gum sole. all gone and la mjc are lasered engraved on heels and tongues, and the shoes come with three pairs of laces. (brown, black, white). the pair feature some parts of the cheetah original artwork created by la mjc for all gone in 2011.
