The bLaCk dioNisO sneaker project was born in 2009 with the intention of customizing one of the twentieth century ICONIC sneakers, to create something special and artisanal with luxury materials and components combined with great Italian craftmanship. After the first collection, we decided to produce our own Sneakers with more comfort (introducing a PORON FUSBETT 2cm platform in all Sneakers) and noble materials.

The product is made with paint, reptilian skin, studs, fur, aluminum, feathers, and other unusual accessories; always trying to be innovative, original, and most importantly, the first to propose new trends…


bLaCk dioNisO develops season after season, attracting everyone that wants to be trendy, but not impersonal! Luca Berioli is the designer of the Company. All his work is characterized by his innate and detached sense of synthesis in transforming the beauty into poetic creations, from separated art to matter.

Depicting different worlds and realities through games of fabrics and jewel details, while keeping a single identity, which makes bLaCK dioNisO man or woman recognizable in every case. Luca merges emotions, music, poetry and painting, giving life to shoes loaded with pathos. He is also a pattern maker, with the objective to cancel the passage steps in order to create pieces without filters or interpretations, starting from the sketch to the concrete.
