What We’re Saying: Building on their catalog of strong collaborations, Patta and Diadora have teamed up on a special edition of the latter’s cult-favorite N9000. Dubbed “Game On,” the project is a nod to Patta’s strong ties to football. The sneaker takes inspiration from one of Italy’s most iconic strikers, Christian Vieri.

Patta previously reworked the N9000 in 2014, also taking inspiration from ’90s football players back then, specifically Marco Van Basten. The latest collaboration is a continuation of that theme and aligns strongly with both brands’ roots.

Vieri became the most expensive player in the world in 1999 when Inter Milan paid Lazio €43 million for the striker’s services. He was sponsored by Diadora in the ’00s and is remembered as one of Italy’s footballing greats.

A “9” detail on the heel of the co-branded sneaker is a nod to Vieri’s number while playing. The “Game On” N9000 is made in Italy and features an upper composed of reverse nubuck suede, leather, and nylon mesh. A classic gum sole rounds out the look.
