Once again, Barcelona’s LimitEDitions and Diadora have joined forces for a headturning sneaker collab. Just like they did on their renowned ‘Castellers‘ release in 2015, the two partners chose Diadora’s classic N9000 silhouette as a base to celebrate a Catalan tradition. For the ‘Correfocs’, LimitEDitions was inspired by the custom of the same name, in which fireworks are lit up in the streets and spectators are trying to get as close as possible. ‘Correfocs’ translates to ‘fire-runs’ in English – and the shoe itself fully lives up to this name.
Black premium kangaroo leather and a premium wolverine suede toe section in red channel the fiery atmosphere, while goat leather lining and a custom box with lots of goodies enrich the whole package. Included are a custom graphic straw tissue paper, keychain, an extra leather insole with a hot press down logo, wolverine suede lace bag and 4 customized shoes laces, PLUS a cotton bandana with embroidered Correfocs logo and straw hat for all the pairs.
But here’s the catch: with a crazy limitation of only 400 numbered pairs, the LimitEDitions x Diadora N9000 ‘Correfocs’ will be available at an exclusive private event. Only approved customers who already bought the ‘Castellers’ collab receive an invite for this release on September 23, 2017.
In addition, the most dedicated Diadora collectors worldwide will get a chance to via mailing for an online release in the next few weeks – so keep an eye out for that if you consider yourself one of them!
