Diadora has partnered with END. and stepped into the opera to deliver a dramatic iteration of a 90s runner. Taking inspirations from opulent auditoriums, the V7000 merges its athletic roots with the romanticism of the Renaissance period. Marrying theatrical settings with the classic, the stage has been set for the END. x Diadora duet, ready for the V7000 to step into an unforgettable experience at the opera house.
As powerful today as it was in 16th-century Florence; the traditions of the opera and its prestigious décor influence this sprinting footwear design. Made in Italy with a passion for the elaborate architecture, royal suede and red leather layer the uppers like balconies tiering the centre stage. Ornate touches of gold sit at the toe box and heel with an END. printed footbed delivering the finishing touch. To the lacing, rope ties bear a resemblance to the tasseled curtains that elegantly drape the stage, whilst underfoot, the gold specked midsole presents the finale, like the confetti drop at the final bow.
The END. X Diadora V7000 ‘Opera’ is set to drop in very limited numbers (150 pairs made) on November 4th, exclusively at END., each individually numbered. Housed in bespoke packaging, the red carpet rolls out to reveal a soft velvety box and travel bag – truly the ultimate in luxury.
