Diadora Creates New Sneaker With Students To Empower The Masses
Representing inclusivity with colors of the rainbow
As young people become more and more vocal within the political, equality and environmental movements, Philadelphia-based studio Garrixon and Italian sportswear brand Diadora have created a new sneaker in collaboration with New York City middle school and high school students.
The sneaker encompasses anti-discrimation, as the students who took part in the 2019 Straight to Feet workshop hosted by Incorp[HER]ated, a diversity and inclusion agency, were tasked to design the Diadora Duratech Elite "LIMITLESS" sneaker.
The vibrant shoe includes a range of bold colors, including alternate pink and blue suede overlays, symbolizing the destruction of gender stereotypes.
Such messages continue to run throughout the design, with holographic side striping representing the inclusivity of people across all spectrums and intersectiions of race, age, gender and sexual orientation.
Pastel hues contrast the pops of yellow and luminescent pink, while simple white laces tie all the colors together. The sneaker includes a range of textures such as leather and suede.
On the hindfoot you'll find "Limitless" etched into the fabric, another inspiring message engrained within the shoe, alongside text printed on the heel reading "Inc.her".
The sneaker will drop on Footlocker's Greenhouse app on February 5th for $175.
