Patta, the Amsterdam-based streetwear boutique, gets its second stab at a collaboration with Italy’s Diadora sportswear company. Their latest venture begins with the N.9000 – one of Diadora’s heritage models from the eighties – and further zeroes in on the Italian roots of the brand by adapting an AC Milan theme. The iconic Italian football club is represented by the use of its black and red colors, brought out by the premium build of the shoe. Each pair is hand-crafted in Cerano San Marco, Italy, bringing together a tandem of Japanese suede, full-grain leather, and nylong mesh. A gum rubber sole adds a timeless touch to the look. The design pays tribute to three of AC Milan’s legendary strikers – Marco van Basten, George Weah, and Filippo Inzaghi – with the embroidered number 9 on the heel. Furthermore, the insole features a grass football pitch graphic to complete the theme. A limited number of pairs will be available at both BAIT Diamond Bar and BAIT Los Angeles when doors open tomorrow. Continue reading for more looks at the shoe!
