In 2014, Hanon drew inspiration from the 1980s UK transportation system to create two editions the Diadora N9000 as the Saturday Special and Transit II.
For July, Hanon is revisiting the transportation theme for a new collaboration with Diadora on the V7000. The 90s era retro runner has been dubbed Inter City with a look inspired by “public transport service that ran throughout the UK in the 1980’s”.
Made in Italy at the Montebelluna shoe district in Caerano di San Marco, the kicks are pieced together with premium list of materials…
We took some inspiration from the impact of Italian sportswear during this decade and especially Diadora’s use of plush material treatments to both their football boots and legendary tennis shoes.
For this project, we wanted to apply a similar premium application and have up-specced the V7000 utilising Italian production and material selection. As a result, the hanon edition is hand crafted in Italy and features a rich upper of silky pig suede and kangaroo leather, as well as the original premium mesh which is also found on our hanon N9000’s.
Sporting a public transit inspired combination of orange, blue and teal, the kicks will launch on the 9th of July through Hanon. Each pair releases with a set of three-laces and dust bag.
