Diesel’s knack for artfully deconstructed design has made it a go-to clothing brand for stylish downtown types ever since its 1978 debut. Founded by Renzo Rosso and Adriano Goldschmied and headquartered in Breganze, Italy, Diesel enjoys its reputation as one of the world’s premier denim brands — outfitting celebs such as Britney Spears and fashionistas worldwide. But Diesel does much more than jeans, applying its note-perfect contemporary edge to everything from jewelry and leather accessories to shoes and boots. Diesel’s footwear collection remains faithful to the label’s core aesthetic: bold, urban, and fashion-forward. From women's stiletto heels and peep-toe pumps to men's rugged high-tops and work boots for men, Diesel’s footwear line offers lots of metallic flourishes, zippers, studs, jolts of color, and other unique details. Make sure your style is set from the ground up with these top-notch kicks.
Whether you’re talking about denim or footwear, there’s something for everyone in the Diesel universe. Diesel shoes run the stylistic gamut from Mad Max to Wild Style. The Moonwalk boots have a badass leather vamp with studs (plus a hidden zipper for ease of entry) while the I'm Pression sneakers combine an old-school athletic tongue with an even-older-school houndstooth check.
Founded by Renzo Russo in 1978, Diesel is an innovative international design company, producing a wide-ranging collection of jeans, clothing and accessories. Diesel is a leader in pioneering new styles, fabrics and manufacturing methods to guarantee an outstanding line of clothing. From the very beginning, Diesel's design team, headed by Creative Director Wilbert Das, turned their backs on the style-dictators and consumer forecasters of the fashion establishment and let their own personal tastes lead them. The result was a dynamic and imaginative collection that has been featured in Flaunt, Details and Nylon to name a few. Diesel is present in specialty stores and high-end boutiques in over 80 countries and is now available at Gilt Groupe.
From the jet-black cotton (with a touch of Spandex) of a pair of skinny jeans to the blue of a darker hue in the straight-legs, Diesel’s clothes recall the wide open sky of Tuscany and the motorino whine of Milan. Vibrant and unapologetically stylish, Diesel brings the Italy of the crowded cobblestoned piazza to your closet.
