The design of the S8000 Nerone uses various shades of red inspired by the myth that Nero sent out partisan to set the city Rome on fire, while he played his lyre and sang from a private stage. The top heel part is made of cracked patent leather pointing to the color of the glowing embers after a fire. Both tongues feature a debossed TGWO script logo. The Diadora model number S8000 is featured in red Latin numerals on the side. The heel part shows a debossed Nero coin design. The insole shows a print of glowing embers and a famous Nero quote saying: „Let it be wonderful or let it be awful as long as it is uncommon.“ To be honest - it is a quote from Nero portraied by Peter Ustinov in the 1951 movie Quo Vadis. TGWO loves movies, by the way there is also a Caligula movie. You should be at least at the age of 18 to watch the movie. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. It has the tagline „The most controversial film of the 20th century“ is now the most controversial film of the 21st century. Almost 40 years after it‘s release it is still listed on the „Index“ (list of censored media and publications) by the Federal Review Board for Publications Harmful to Young Persons. But we digress and this is a press information about sneakers not a movie talk, so: a Nero coin hang tag rounds up the design. The S8000 Nerone also comes with four pairs of laces in a special black shoebox with red logo prints.
