Italian label Diemme looks to be expanding their offerings beyond their iconic hiking boots with the introduction of the duck boot for Fall 2011. The design is everything you’d expect — a modern, refined take on an American classic. The chocolate brown leather at the ankle mends well with the deep green rubber unit, while hiking laces and a subtle deboss branding finish things off. The boots are available at select Diemme accounts worldwide including i.t in Hong Kong. (via hypebeast)
Italian labels Stone Island and Diemme have teamed up for this chocolate suede hiking boot. It’s made at Montebelluna in Italy, as expected, and features a timeless hiking boot design, one that Diemme has rejuvenated over the past few seasons. The solid Vibram outsole works as a great platform for the brown waterproof suede upper that’s fitted with leather ankles, technical hiking eyelets, embossed Stone Island logos on the heels, and a Stone Island patch on the tongue.
Italian label Diemme delivers this colorway of their Firenze boot exclusively for Nitty Gritty. It’s one the more versatile offerings from Diemme and the chocolate brown shell in suede is perfect for the winter season. “A lightweight plain toe suede boot with a white Christy Vibram Wedge Sole. Contrasting yellow laces, metal eyelets and heel pull loop.”
While at this year’s (capsule) show, we had the opportunity to check out Diemme’s Fall 2011 collection and have to say it’s really something spectacular. This past winter was more of a soft launch the Italian brand told us, but with the amount of press coverage they received, you’d think otherwise. Well, expect next winter’s lineup to pack more punch and a more robust collection. Diemme will be dropping a line of sneakers to compliment their iconic hiker boots. Furthermore, the hiker boot styles have received some welcomed adjustments but the craftsmanship and detail isn’t lost.
It seems hiker boots are popping up left and right but why get anything but the finest? Diemme is known for using the best fabrics available and the craftsmanship of their footwear is unparalleled. The boots are produced Montebelluna, Italy an area widely regarded as one of the most dominant areas for production and research of technical and performance footwear.
The Roccia Vet is fitted with a suede, almond-colored upper and a Vibram sole. The red laces work well with the color choice and there’s an Italian flag on both feet at the back, showing the brand’s heritage.
