For Summer 2014 hanon has joined forces with Italian sportswear brand Diadora. Together the two worked on the N.9000 running shoe. First launched in 1990, the N.9000 initially released as a high performance running shoe. hanon pays tribute to the “Saturday Special” with its sneaker, a public transport service that ran through the UK in the 1980s. The decade inspired hanon on the color palette and materials used on the Diadora sneaker. Manufactured in Italy, the ’80s trains and buses inspired the colors used for the collaborative sneaker, with the focus being burgundy and navy. The hanon x Diadora N.9000 “Saturday Special” will be released exclusively at hanon on May 31, with remaining stock also going to be sold online the same day from 2 p.m.
