Dutch colab kings Patta are back at it again, this time around jumping into bed with Italian veterans of the sneaker game Diadora. Using the '80s N9000 model as the base, the duo have gone premium, choosing to make the shoe in Italy with the finest of textiles including Japanese suede and supple nylon mesh. Flaunting a scheme of muted blues melded with grey and white, red jumps on board to steal the show whilst Patta branding can be found sitting proud on the heels and tongues. We are sensing a big year for Diadora so stay tuned for more news from the Italian running revival front. The Patta x Diadora N9000 is set to launch exclusively in store at Patta on Saturday January 25, 2014 and will be offered online shortly after.
