A few weeks ago, I told you in an article (available HERE) about the first collaboration between Diadora and Costs Store. This exclusive version « Coral Pink » addresses the theme « rare and precious things ». It incorporates environmental awareness into its design by taking a classic, high-end and popular silhouette, the V7000, as its base. Taking the seabed and coral as its inspiration, it conveys a positive message of conservation of the natural environment, but also of freedom, passion, strength, happiness, free expression and eternity of which the coral is the symbol.
Having had the chance to receive it, I suggest you to discover it in pictures at my feet.
The shoe comes in a color palette of black, navy and turquoise blue, purple, pink and white. It consists of a premium suede upper in shades of the color blue in a double layer, complemented by high-quality black leather inserts. The Diadora side emblem provides a nice touch of contrast with its bright pink color evoking the coral of the deep sea and representing the vibrant tones of the coral scene of the ocean floor. The heels are adorned with 2 different pink embroideries : the coral and an anchor, which underline the message of the collab, the tongues feature the branding of each brand in purple and the insole is adorned with a print of a coral colony. The whole is based on a white midsole with a purple heel clip and a black and hot pink outsole, which bring the final harmonious touch to the design.
Aesthetically speaking, the color mixing touches of blue to purple through a fuchsia pink seems to me rather successful. The theme is also respected. The quality and finishes « Made in Italy » are also respected. You will have understood, for me this collaboration is a very nice pair that we appreciate even more once on the feet. I validate in 100%.
