UPDATE: Following an exclusive release through BAIT in 2016, these Felix the Cat-inspired N9000s have finally found their way into a select batch of global Diadora stockists, including Overkill. They'll be hitting stores on February 11 in both but you'll have to act fast – numbers are strictly limited.
The ongoing partnership between BAIT, Dreamworks and Diadora has produced another character-based colab, this time it’s Felix the Cat's turn. The trio have turned out an N9000 silhouette in a clean black and white colourway, built from premium leather and suede. The upper has been predominantly blocked out in black, with white panels on the sides, while a lightly speckled section of midsole sits under the heel. The insole features the focal feline kicking a soccer ball about, to remind us of the fourth element of the colab – the COPA America soccer tournament.
The BAIT x Dreamworks x Diadora N9000 ‘Felix the Cat’ is limited to 500 units. The drop is July 23, once again you can get them online from BAIT and will also be available at the BAIT booth during San Diego Comic Con.
