Concepts x Diadora N9000 “Concepts Pack”.

by Henrik Buzzi


Hollywood icons leading the ‘50s entertainment era were famous for their dapper styles marked by tailored tuxedos, sharkskin suits, pocket squares and top hats. The Concepts x Diadora N9000 “Concepts Pack” captures the essence of this fashion-forward era by presenting a sleek black-and-white model complete with three sets of laces: black, red and “piano key.” The shoes come packaged in a custom-designed box emblazoned with a silhouette of a tuxedo jacket with a trifold red pocket square.

Made in Italy, the sneaker features a unique twill material often used in suiting design and manufacturing. Additionally, there is premium suede and perforated leather, a premium leather liner, a mesh tongue and reflective Diadora logos along the side. For a pop of color, there is a pair of red eyelet grommets at the tying point, an accent shade that carries over to the custom packaging. The Concepts Pack drops on February 27 at cncptsintl.com.
