We have been pumping through a barrage of gems from Diadora that are hitting shelves this week, but this right here is the one we have been waiting for! Previewed just a couple of days back thanks to a tidy Vimeo short, today Packer Shoes officially unveils their Diadora N9000 'Azzurri' – and goddamn, it's beautiful! Ignore the fact that the person writing this is of Italian descent and slightly biased towards the motherland, but just take a minute to really assess what's in front of you. Kangaroo leather, pigskin suedes, perforations, gum soles, exquisite colour blocking – you name it, these burners have got it. To make this release just that little bit more special, Packer and Diadora have created a matching 'Azzurri' Sweat Full Zip Jacket – limited to a mere 40 pieces, and yep you guessed correct, it's also made in Italy. Launching January 31 at Packer Shoes, both in-store and online, mark our words, this could take the cake at the most luscious N9000 so far! Forza Italia!
* Word on the street, the 'Azzurri' N9000 runs half a size big, so if you're copping online make sure to take that into consideration – happy hunting.*
