Following the launch of the V7000 ‘Opera’ in 2017, END. and Diadora return to make an even greater splash with the N9002 “Lido”. Drawing inspiration from the luxurious open-air swimming pools of North Eastern Italy take a dip with this fresh rendition of a classic footwear silhouette. 

Embodying the elegant appearance of a Mediterranean lido, this sneaker style offers the perfect combination of handmade Italian construction and a modern aesthetic. Developed with a fluid sensibility, the N9002 oversees the alignment of cerulean shades and time-honoured tradition. Blending graphic cues from the past and present, this iconic ‘90s model is updated to offer a sneaker brimming with visual flair and superior materials. 


Handcrafted at Diadora’s factory in Caerano di San Marco, the ‘Lido’ instils an authentic aura of aquatic aesthetics, combining subtle pastel shades of baby blue and turtledove across the pigskin nubuck and Cervo leather uppers. Underfoot, a clear rubber outsole unveils an inviting Baltic shade, embellished with a pattern emulating subaqueous reflections, while towelling sock-liner provides premium comfort with every step. Emblazoned with a flourish of cobranded details including embroidered branding and debossed accents to the EVA midsole, the N9002 “Lido” swims laps around the competition. 


Presented in a custom aquatic themed box, END. and Diadorainvite you to embrace poolside luxury with the “Lido”. In perfect time for the holiday season, the END. x Diadora N9002 “Lido” will launch at END. on Saturday 11/05/2019.
