For May, END. is working with Diadora to drop the “Lido” edition of the N9002. Inspired by swimming pools, the kicks take on a premium material palette with production sourced from the Diadora factory in Italy.
Here is how END. describes the sneaker…
Drawing inspiration from the luxurious open-air swimming pools of North Eastern Italy, take a dip with this fresh rendition of a classic footwear silhouette.
Embodying the elegant appearance of a Mediterranean lido, this sneaker style offers the perfect combination of handmade Italian construction and a modern aesthetic. Developed with a fluid sensibility, the N9002 oversees the alignment of cerulean shades and time-honoured tradition. Blending graphic cues from the past and present, this iconic ‘90s model is updated to offer a sneaker brimming with visual flair and superior materials.
Handcrafted at Diadora’s factory in Caerano di San Marco, the ‘Lido’ instils an authentic aura of aquatic aesthetics, combining subtle pastel shades of baby blue and turtledove across the pigskin nubuck and cervo leather uppers. Underfoot, a clear rubber outsole unveils an inviting Baltic shade, embellished with a pattern emulating subaqueous reflections, while a towelling sockliner provides premium comfort with every step. Emblazoned with a flourish of co-branded details including embroidered branding and debossed accents to the EVA midsole, the N9002 ‘Lido’ swims laps around the competition.
Presented in a custom aquatic themed box, END. and Diadora invite you to embrace poolside luxury with the ‘Lido’.
The END. x Diadora N9002 ‘Lido’ will release on the 11th of May at END.
