2014 is a hell of a year for Diadora. This newest take on the N.9000 is the third collaboration with Patta. We’ve already talked about this classic 80s model, which was worn by track & field athletes and Olympic gold champions like Daley Thompson and Sebastian Coe. In the “Made in Italy” Patta version, the silhouette is adorned with premium materials such as pigskin suede with premium nubuck and soft Italian leather. The off-white upper is combined with red and green – homage to the Italian flag. Each pair also includes a set of leather laces for a different look and original Diadora packaging. The first launch was on September 20 at Patta, more pairs follow at other retailers at a later date.
