Daley Thompson and Sebastian Coe aren’t household names like Michael Jordan or even Usain Bolt, but these men are unforgettable to serious sports fans. Both guys won Olympic golds in both the 1980 and ’84 Games in their respective disciplines (decathlon and 1500M), so with the latter’s 30th anniversary this year, it’s a good time to resurrect a shoe both men endorsed. The Patta x Diadora N9000 also serves as a tenth anniversary celebration for the Dutch sneaker boutique, which uses premium Made in Italy versions of the original materials in a blue, white, black, grey and red colorway that includes an ‘Sn’ footbed graphic said to represent Patta’s 10th (though that element’s atomic number is 50). Click in for a closer view and be ready for these to release at their Amsterdam boutique and online on Saturday. Also, be sure to check out the Patta x Stussy pop up in NYC that’s opening tomorrow, January 23rd.
