Taken from an Italian word for “beach”, outdoor swimming pools are known as “lidos” in the UK. END’s collab on the other hand references the luxurious open-air swimming pools of North Eastern Italy. Handcrafted at Diadora’s Caerano di San Marco factory, the N9002 features Cervo leather and pig skin nubuck uppers.
Underneath the white EVA midsole, the shoe’s translucent bottom shows a sky blue water pattern. Cow leather lining, a towelled footbed and stitched “END” branding on the tongues round off the sneaker. It arrives in a custom aquatic-themed box which includes an accompanying branded towel an 3 sets of laces.
