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. Retailing $200, the shoes drop 02.27.16 12pm eastern at cncptsintl.com and in-store at Concepts Cambridge and NYC.
