From the ground up

All summer long, we have been given little doses of cartoon-inspired wonder from the supergroup collaborative team of BAIT, Diadora and DreamWorks. So far, we have seen sneakers decked out in prints from Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and Where’s Wally?. For the latest in the series, the brands have turned to the beloved feline Felix the Cat.

Keeping in line with Felix’s coloring, the shoe arrives in a classic black-and-white colorway. Like the Shrek sneaker, the Felix shoe is a model of the N9000 silhouette, with construction that is a combination of velvet suede and tumbled nubuck. The midsole is adorned in a black speckled print, providing the only portion of the exterior not in solid black or white.

Unlike the previous entrants in this collaborative series, the three brands have created a mini capsule line for Felix the Cat. Aside from the sneakers, the collection includes a pin set, collectible figures, hats and two types of T-shirts. The shoes are also available in toddler sizes should you need a gift for the smaller members of your family.

The BAIT x Diadora x DreamWorks N9000 Felix the Cat arrives in a limited set of 500, you can enter a raffle to win a pair right here.

In related news, Diadora has just dropped a pink suede version of the N9000 with La MJC.
