After working on a sneaker earlier this year, Patta and Diadora are back this summer for another collaboration. This time, the Dutch retailer takes inspiration from beloved AC Milan strikers Marco van Basten, George Weah and Filippo Inzaghi. Perfect timing for a football-themed collection with the World Cup currently underway.
The Diadora N9000 "9" uses O.G. materials to truly commemorate the vintage runner. The upper is constructed of a black suede with matching mesh paneling and red leather accents. The number "9" is embroidered on the heel—the numbers of all three legendary AC Milan players—and the sockliner features a graphic of a grass football pitch. In true Diadora form, the sneaker is also made in Italy.
The Patta x Diadora N9000 "9" will be available this Saturday, June 21, in-store at Patta followed by an online release. Retail is €150,00, or about $203 USD.
