UPDATE: Following an exclusive drop through Social Status in April, these lustrous N9000s will be awarded with a wider release on July 30, just in time for the 2016 Olympic Summer Games. The red and gold pair will be released through select top-tier Diadora accounts globally, while the blue and silver is limited to select Diadora stockists within the United States.
North Carolina based boutique Social Status has linked with Diadora to celebrate the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio. The resulting 'Rio Olympic Medals' pack is comprised of two Diadora N9000s in gold and silver because apparently nobody cares about bronze.
Social Status actually went to Rio and shot the N9000 with local capoeira fighters and football players to capture the essence of a city about to be thrust onto the world stage again.
The Social Status x Diadora N9000 'Rio Olympic Medals' pack will be available from Social Status' brick and mortar, and online stores on April 30.
