After teasing the shoe last week, today Sneaker Freaker fully unveils their collaboration with Diadora for the “Taipan” V7000. The classic Diadora runner is given a deadly makeover by Sneaker Freaker, who take inspiration from the lethal taipan native to Australia, which is known as the deadliest snake on Earth.
The publication’s first-ever collaboration with Diadora, the “Taipan” V7000 features a blend of grey and black suede with olive nubuck, 3M heel detailing, and bright purple accents. Sneaker Freaker doesn’t stop there, as they add even more detail to the venomous shoe including reptile embossed side stripes, a speckled and faded midsole, pink “fangs” on the outsole, a taipan embroidered on the tongues, and serpentine insole graphics.
The Sneaker Freaker x Diadora V7000 “Taipan” will release via the Sneaker Freaker online store at a date still to be announced, as well as a drop at select Foot Locker EU locations on November 23rd.
