Ronnie Fieg x Italy-based Slam Jam Collaborate with Diadora
Ronnie Fieg and Slam Jam partner to release a multi-dimensional collection with Diadora. The collaborative release of their first Diadora model introduces the V7000 silhouette back into the world after a 25-year hiatus.
Ronnie Fieg introduces a brand-new silhouette using the V7000 as its foundation with the RF7000 “Primo”. The New York-designer incorporates vintage Diadora track shoe-components by adding unique asymmetrical leather toe overlays to create an original execution. The color palette is a deviation of the Italian national flag - green, white and red are translated as olive, off-white, and burgundy. Cow leather is applied to the liner and custom-debossed footbeds, while the final touch is a full gum outsole. Custom packaging and three options of two-tone cotton woven laces accompany the Ronnie Fieg x Diadora RF7000 “Primo”.
Italy-based Slam Jam redesigns the V7000 drawing inspiration from the US Navy, titling their model - "Yvan." This model features a full navy upper with a utilitarian nylon vamp. The overlays are tonal pigskin suede and full grain leather, while cow leather is chosen for the liner and dazzle camo-printed footbeds. The heel panel and woven tongue label are branded in Navy-inspired typography. The final touch is an aquatic blue translucent outsole. Custom packaging and two-tone cotton woven laces accompany the Slam Jam x Diadora V7000 “Yvan”
The Ronnie Fieg x Slam Jam x Diadora RF7000 & V7000 collection will release on Friday, Oct. 23, at both KITH locations, Slam Jam Milan, KithNYC.com, and will retail for a suggested price of $200.
