Whodunnit: The Diadora Columbo Pack

2017-04-10T11:02:02

Who’d have guessed it? The DIADORA COLUMBO PACK takes cues from the TV detective’s iconic beige and khaki.

A ‘70s staple on the box, any ‘80s and ‘90s kids are sure to remember reruns of khaki trench coat donned detective Columbo. It may seem like an unlikely inspiration for a sneaker colourway but Diadora has pulled out all of the stops, creating a muted model that pays homage to the Los Angeles homicide wiz played by the late Peter Falk.

Taking shape over two of the brand’s standout sneakers, the N9000 and TITAN, the pack whips up beige and khaki uppers with green accents to mirror Columbo’s trench, chinos and tie – but the colourway definitely also carries a little edge of Easter, fitting in perfectly with the current season.

Further nods to the detective are included with a heel embroidery spelling out the registration on his trusty Peugeot, ‘044 APD’. And of course, every good detective needs a canine companion, so Columbo’s pet (named simply “Dog”) gets a little shout out via a stamped outline on the tongue.

Whilst the N9000 keeps it sleek, the Titan holds a more retro-runner edge, offering up a nice bit of variety on an aesthetically pleasing colourway. Investigate no further and grab yourself a pair.
