The N9000 is a pinnacle point among the 'Made in' Diadora collections: due to the high-quality materials used throughout with plush suede, breathable mesh and durable midsoles, whilst replicating the construction and comfort of the original, and a timeless, trendy design: characteristics that come to the fore at their best in the Made in Italy version.
At Soleheaven we have had a few N9000 iterations stocked in the last few months, from the unique 'Hologram' to the military inspired 'Bright Camo' pack, the latest 'Made In Italy' iteration is extremely tasteful, with clean white uppers on the mesh, complimented with seasonal tones of 'Oatmeal' and 'Mustard' whilst being broken up by vibrant hits of Red & Blue it is one of the most iconic silhouettes as it was how Diadora transferred from Athletic footwear to Lifestyle sneakers. one of their most iconic silhouettes perfected the transition between athletics to lifestyle.
The Virbasorb damping and the EVA midsole make for a comfortable ride whilst retaining its durable qualities making the N9000 a perfect all round sneaker. Made in Italy at Diadora's headquarters in Caerano Di Son Marco which has a production facility in house.
I personally love Diadora's approach to this sneaker because it has a clean, minimal base with hits of colour that make it distinct and creative, plus the Made In Italy instantly says high-quality and premium long lasting sneakers, so these are definitely worth the £130. I also enjoy the way the Princess Blue wraps around the midsole as it makes the sneaks pop in contrast to the white.
