It’s been two and a half years since EU retailer afew re-worked the Diadora V.7000 into a special “Highly Addictive” makeup, and now the two partners are back again with the next installment in their collaborative series, a Diadora N.9000 “Highly Addictive.” With details inspired by the habit-forming nature of sneaker collecting dispersed throughout, these made-in-Italy N.9000s are constructed of a two-toned premium grey suede, and feature a three-headed homage of sorts, with each foot telling a different tale. The right shoe nods to New York City with its green accents and embroidered midfoot monogram, while the right shoe salutes afew’s home city of Dusseldorf, Germany with its pops of soft red and embroidered details. The trifecta of acknowledgement is then completed by the overall colorway, which bears many a similarity to the aforementioned V.7000 from 2017. An all-over pill/asphalt print then appears on the co-branded insoles to complete the look. They’re set to release on September 7th exclusively at Sneakersnstuff‘s NYC location in Chelsea, so take a look right here and be sure to swing by SNS on drop day if you’re looking to snag a pair.
