Following her first ever Reebok Club C Geo Mid, Nicole McLaughlin transforms the Diemme Maggiore Mule for the ultimate utilitarian footwear collab. McLaughlin’s upcycled concepts remain ever-present as her artistic journey has been a viral sensation over the past few years. The Brooklyn-based designer is known for her innovative approach of repurposing items and turning them into wearable art, which she does here with Diemme’s Maggiore Mule.
Using forgotten materials found in Diemme’s footwear factories, McLaughlin continues with her sustainable practices as the mules have three detachable uppers that transform into small functional tote bags. Coming in shades of Blue, Beige, and Green, the top layer can be unzipped from the silhouette’s base, which is a simple suede mule. The upper half is made with waterproof ripstop and is secured with tonal zippers and toggles instead of traditional laces.
The Nicole McLaughlin x Diemme Maggiore is available now. The retail price is set at €349 (Approx. $380 USD). To purchase, visit the Diemme website. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
