Ronnie Fieg has established himself as a taste maker in the world of sneakers, and his collaboration on these Diadora shoes lives up to that reputation.

Ronnie Fieg's coloring of these Diadora shoes is a tribute to Diadora's country of origin, Italy. The maroon, white, grey and olive green are a subdued play on the brighter red, white and green of the Italian flag. The silhouette of the shoe is drawn from a retro model, the Diadora RF 7000. Made out of buttery suede and smooth leather, the Diadora shoes feature a knitted two-tone lace and an asymmetrical patch across the toe.

Fieg is the owner and founder of New York footwear and apparel store KITH. Through a history of collaborations with the world's largest sneaker brands -- most notably Asics -- the name Ronnie Fieg has become synonymous with stylish sneakers, making it a brand in its own right.
