Diadora x LC23



A true passion for Italian quality, style, and attention to detail have always between the hallmark’s of the partnership between LC23 and Diadora, now for Spring/Summer 2019 the duo team up once more for a project inspired the world of sailing. (which like the two brands has its origins in the Mediterranean area)
to create a contemporary collection that reflects the DNA and values of both brands while telling the story of a yachting trip along Italy’s shorelines and beaches. LC23 use patches and prints reminiscent of sailing team gear. The result is a collection where LC23’s casual sports energy with a sartorial flair meets the exceptional know-how and heritage of the Diadora company.
The B.Elite ‘sailing’ edition takes a different approach from what we're used to. One of the most noticeable inclusions is the neoprene sockliner that evokes images of technical contemporary performance sail wear. In addition to this, we see an overhauled sole unit with Diadora’s ‘MASS DAMPER’ technology deployed in the oversized spongy midsole. Landing in two distinctive colourways, the first keeps things subtle with a beige and white upper finished in nubuck and leather; the second is a study in colour with an all over suede execution. Both B.Elites boast elastic straps, plus a removable sockliner with branding being called out on the heel tab.  
The second part of the footwear drop sees an LC23 take on the MI Basket. Originally launched in 1984 as a shoe for the basketball court, LC23’s edition tips its hat to the finish of basketball sneakers in that era with its brace of editions. Each upper is crafted is period apt finishes, first up the silver resin coated nylon that simultaneously evokes images of sailing and vintage sportswear product. Next up we have a typically traditional canvas execution that features customisable looks with removable logos and detailing.
