24 Kilates x Diadora IC4000 “Gold Medal Crew"

by Henrik Buzzi

24 Kilates joins forces once again with Diadora to present a new collaboration called “From Seoul to Rio” taking inspiration from the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio. 24 Kilates pays tribute to the rise and fall of Jamaican-born Canadian former sprinter Ben Johnson, who win the 100m final at the Summer Olympics in Seoul, lowering his own world record to 9.79 seconds and who was disqualified three days later for doping, losing the Olympic title and other records he won before on this event.  The shoe uses a color palette of navy blue, red, white and gold to create a fresh and Olympic look overall. While presenting the same construction as the original model, the IC4000 mixes premium leather with perforated leather and 3M details. This edition comes with two additional sets of laces. A capsule collection of apparel will be also released for the launch of the IC4000 “Gold Medal Crew”. It contains a track suit jacket, a T-shirt and a duffel bag, all made in Italy with the best choice of materials available. The 24 Kilates x Diadora IC4000 “Gold Medal Crew” will be available exclusively at 24 Kilates on August 6.
