Maricosta Mid Black Suede Sneaker | Carhartt x Diemme

Maricosta Mid Black Suede Sneaker white background

Sneaker collaborations are more or less de rigueur, so we’re always on the lookout for a collaborative kick like the Carhartt & Diemme Marostica for its natural, elegant blend of high- and low-brow aesthetics.

The former brand was born of America’s railroad boom at the turn of the 20th century; the latter spawned from Italy’s alpine environs just over two decades ago. This partnership is working-life-meets-sporting-life; it’s perseverance-meets-privilege; it’s two similarly rugged brands that are rugged for two very different purposes.

These disparate backgrounds ooze from every element of the Maricosta Mid. From its durable vulcanized white, to the triple-stitched heel panel, to its Navajo heel-pull, it’s built to last. But it’s also built for flash, what with that aforementioned black-on-black suede, and the gunmetal D-ring eyelets that harness black laces.

It doesn’t quite fit into either brand’s catalog, because it surfaces a new aesthetic, one that equitably blends high and low. And because it can walk that line, so can the rest of your outfit — the Marostica Mid will pop against chinos, but the daring dude will employ it to dress-down a suit.

You can cop the collaborative Marostica Mid for $357 USD at End Hunting Co.
