Sneaker Freaker x Diadora V7000 Taipan - The Drop Date

Sneaker Freaker x Diadora V7000 Taipan – Release Info


Sneaker Freaker x Diadora V7000 Taipan

The SNEAKER FREAKER x DIADORA V7000 TAIPAN marks the first collaboration between the legendary sneaker magazine (who are just about to start their 15th anniversary celebrations) and the renowned Italian sportswear brand.

The inland taipan is an indigenous Australian snake that ranks number one on the deadliest land snake index: as ‘hot’ snakes go, this one’s top of the list. The neurotoxic venom is lethal, paralysing the victim’s nervous system and disrupting blood flow. If you’re bitten by a taipan, the likelihood is that you’ll either bleed to death – or collapse from shock. Taipans are notoriously aggressive, so don’t corner this rowdy beast and expect to walk away unscathed – this bugger will finish you!

The Sneaker Freaker edition of the Diadora V7000 model is assembled from a sophisticated blend of sandy suedes, outback olive nubuck, 3M heel bites and venomous violet highlights. The midsoles are boldly blazed with a gradient midfoot fade, while desert speckle and debossed ‘snakeskin’ panels add extra reptilian flair. As animal themed footwear goes, this pair is the deadliest out there!

The standard Diadora tongue design has been totally refreshed, with our ingenious Taipan project logo added and the usual squiggle replaced by a golden serpent slithering across the black suede. Flipping the shoe over reveals pink fangs hidden in the V7000 sole. The killer Taipan shoebox completes the package with class. For those with the special connects, all F&F Taipans available from Sneaker Freaker will be exclusively wrapped in these unique luminescent 3M ‘snake’ laces made by LaceSpace.

The SNEAKER FREAKER x DIADORA V7000 TAIPAN drops at the Sneaker Freaker online store (date TBC) with a wider release on FRIDAY 25 NOVEMBER at selected Foot Locker EU stores.
