German-based retailer The Goodwill Out links up with Italian-based Diadora to release a very special edition collection that pays tribute to the Roman Empire. Officially dubbed, the “Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire,” that’s centered around two historic figures, Caligula and Nerone.
The V7000 Caligula uses various shades of Off-White inspired by a toga, a distinctive garment of Ancient Rome which was a roughly semicircular cloth. It is between 12 and 20 feet in length, draped over the shoulders and around the body. The S8000 Nerone uses various shades of Red inspired by the myth that Nero sent out partisan to set the city Rome on fire, while he played his lyre and sang from a private stage. It also features cracked patent leather, debossed TGWO script logo and Latin numerals on the side. Both shoes also come with a medallion insignia on each of the heels.
