Diadora and Swiss sneaker retailer Titolo have partnered up to bring you a fresh, colourful rendition of the Diadora Intrepid. Given the Italian roots of the store’s three founders, Titolo looked at traditional Italian wedding almonds as a source of inspiration.
The fancy, sugarcoated candies are rich in flavour and have a cultural meaning, symbolising the five wishes of the Bride and Groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity. Almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life while the sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds’ lives will be more sweet than bitter.
The shades of the different almonds are reflected in the choice of the colour composition, enhancing the heel panel and sides of the sneaker whilst playfully contrasting the with ivory toebox, tongue, soleunit and signature Diadora branding.
The use of premium materials, such as the super soft premium suede, together with the perfect interplay of form and colour, result in both a unique and immediately striking sneaker.
