UK-based retailer END. and Italian athletic brand Diadora are joining forces on the END. x Diadora N9002 “Lido”. This shoe embodies a day out in the sun, at the pool or at the beach. Named after the luxurious open-air swimming pools of Northeast Italy, the “Lido” brings aquatic aesthetics with its baby blue and soft yellow upper sitting atop a clear blue embellished outsole, sort of how the blue sky and yellow sun shines atop reflective pools of water.
Handcrafted at Diadora’s Caerano di San Marco factory, the “Lido” exudes luxury with its pig skin nubuck overlays and Cervo leather upper. An EVA midsole and towelled footbed provide deluxe comfort with every step. The shoe is packaged in a aquatic-themed box and is even accompanied by a beach towel.
The END. x Diadora N9002 “Lido” retails for $239 and releases on May 11th. A draw on END. Launches is currently open.
