Diadora has teamed up with longtime close collaborator and high-end sneaker retailer LimitEDitions for a new premium partnership.

Rejuvenating the retro-running styles of the previous era, Diadora and LimitEDitions serve up the N.9000 “Correfocs.” Inspired by a style of medieval street theater known as “Ball de Diables,” the N.9000 Correfocs symbolizes the age-old struggle between the forces of good and evil. Literally translating to “fire runs,” Correfocs stands for the Catalan cultural tradition of new energy and societal rebirth after centuries of suppression.

In modern times, Correfocs are celebrations that occur during Barcelona, Spain’s September La Merce festival. To celebrate those festivities and the energy that brings them to life, LimitEDitions and Diadora have created this sneaker.

Outfitted with goat leather, kangaroo leather, wolverine suede and more premium materials, the LimitEDitions and Diadora N.9000 “Correfocs” is available for viewing above and its promotional vignette can be checked out below — the item will be available in-store and online this Saturday, September 23.

Previously, Diadora presented a “Warm Sand” iteration of the V.7000 “Alpini.”
