Concepts‘ latest sneaker collaboration is money. The Cambridge-based retailers has teamed up with Diadora on the N9000 “Lire,” featuring a blend of pastel hues inspired by Italy’s pre-Euro currency, the lire. Specifically, the shoe features the color scheme found on the 500,000 lire note, the highest denomination bill in Italy’s history. The premium suede and mesh upper blends aquamarine and pink accents, with special details including “500000” embroidered on the heel and subtle 3M backing on the Diadora logo. Custom sockliners complete the look. Retailing for $205, the made in Italy kicks launch October 3rd at Concepts’ Cambridge location and online.
