As an added layer to the celebration, we created a "Purple Tape"-inspired version of the Diadora Maverick. The shoe features OG Maverick color-blocking with the classic hues flipped to shades of purple from our 2015 edition of the N.9000.
In perfect parallel to the Made in Italy “Cuban Linx” shoe, the premium leather “Purple Tape” Maverick is Made in the USA, bringing the international story of the US streets embracing Italian sportswear completely full circle.
Originally only intended for Raekwon and Packer friends & family, as a special surprise to the fans, we decided to make 50 pairs available to the public. They went live on our site with no advanced notice alongside the other shoe this morning.
Congrats to those who spotted them and secured their pair and a very happy holidays to all!
