It’s hard to believe that the Sneaker Freaker magazine is 15 years old! And to commemorate this momentous occasion they’ve teamed up with Sportswear brand Diadora to launch the ‘Taipan’ version of the iconic V7000. Inspired by the Australian snake of the same name the shoe features a sandy suede and olive nubuck upper and splashes of 3M and violet purple accents. With of course the signature branding on the side with debossed snakeskin panelling and Sneaker Freaker illustration on the insole.


The Taipan will be sold in Europe exclusively at Foot Locker stores in Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and the UK. The shoe will be released next November 23rd during the Foot Locker’s Week of Greatness.

Limited pairs will also be available for purchase at Sneaker Freaker’s online store and via
