Hanon x Diadora N9000 ‘Transit II’

HanonxdiadoratransitII2_r2_c1

This Fall we have once again joined forces with Italian sports brand Diadora, and are proud to present our second collaboration on their N.9000 running shoe.

The  N.9000 ‘Transit II’ continues a return to Italian manufacturing for Diadora and once again pays homage to the ‘Saturday Special’; a public transport service that ran throughout the UK in the 1980’s.


We took inspiration from the impact of Italian sportswear during this decade and especially Diadora’s use of plush material treatments, to both their football boots and legendary tennis shoes.

For this project, we wanted to apply a similar premium application and have up-specced the N.9000 utilising Italian production and material selection. As a result, the hanon edition is hand crafted in Italy and features a rich upper of silky pig suede, with a buttery kangaroo leather on the heel tip and side stripes, while the original closed mesh found on the first edition of the shoe, features on the toe.

The colour palette of the hanon N.9000 ‘Transit II’ is once again inspired by 80’s trains and buses, and is a mix of  teal green with tomato red call outs and a cobalt yellow lining. Attention to detail appears by way of an old school multi print on the in sock and tongue backer, whilst dual branding is featured via our flame logo – embroidered on the heel overlays and screened on the tongue patch.

Three sets of laces, gold foil labels and a additional screened cotton dust bag complete the shoe.
