AEW and Champs Sports are teaming up to celebrate Pride Month with the first iteration of the limited-edition “Diadora x AEW” footwear collection.
The “Diadora x AEW” collection will also include three more drops later this year, featuring The Young Bucks and other AEW stars.
The first pair of new sneakers will be available Thursday morning at 10 a.m. ET, exclusively at Champs. The sneakers will retail for $120 each on the champssports.com website. You can see photos below.
The following was published today about the new collaboration:
“Inspired by AEW’s incredible LGBTQ+ talent, the Pride Month drop will feature a custom take on Diadora’s groundbreaking sneaker, the N9002: a classic black nylon suede upper with a multi-colored prismatic overlay and an AEW logo on the back. The project was developed with the support of Foot Locker Inc.’s employee resource group called LACED WITH PRIDE, which strives to foster an inclusive work environment that supports LGBTQ+ people and their allies through education and awareness.
Additionally, $25,000 will be donated to The Trevor Project, which is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth.
Fans can look forward to four more releases as part of the multi-pronged “Diadora x AEW” collection, all of which will be released this year. The first is currently in development with The Young Bucks, and the next three will be in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month – Andrade, Santana and Ortiz, The Lucha Bros. HHM will run from September 15 to October 15, so all three of these sneakers should be released around that time. Bucks sneakers will likely be released before then.
