The design of the V7000 Caligula uses various shades of off-white inspired by a toga, a distinctive garment of Ancient Rome which was a roughly semicircular cloth. It is between 12 and 20 feet in length, draped over the shoulders and around the body. The toe box of the V7000 is made of linen in style of that toga fabric. Another material used on the Diadora Quarter stripe is a golden cracked patent leather. Its inspiration comes from the opulence and wealth of that era. The heel of the V7000 Caligula is made of pony hair in reference to Caligula’s horse Incitatus which he worshipped with a stable of marble, an ivory manger, purple blankets and a collar of precious stones. He even wanted to appoint him as a Senator. The heel part also features a Caligula coin burned in with a branding iron as well as the Diadora model number V7000 written in Latin numerals. The insole features a print of the Incitatus horse hair and a famous Caligula quote saying: „Let them hate us so long as they fear us“. A Caligula coin hang tag rounds it up. The V7000 Caligula comes with four pairs of laces all packed in a white special shoebox with golden logo prints.
