Amsterdam-based retailer Patta has teamed up with Diadora to revive the N9000, the ’80s runner made famous by track & field athletes and Olympic gold champions like Daley Thompson and Sebastian Coe. Made in Italy, the kicks stays true to the original material program, using Japanese suede, premium leather and nylon mesh across the upper. The colorway, meanwhile, is all new, featuring varying shades of blue with pops of red at the lining, tongue and midsole. Patta branding on the tongue and heel rounds out the exterior details, and the shoe rests on a white EVA molded sole for a classic look. Finally, an “Sn” graphic at the sockliner — denoting the chemical element for tin — gives the nod to Patta’s 10 year anniversary. The Patta x Diadora N9000 is set to launch exclusively in store at Patta on January 25, followed later by an online launch.
