Diadora and BAIT have teamed up with DreamWorks to use its licensed properties on a series of upcoming releases, executed on the S8000 and the N9000, two iconic models of Diadora, coming from the 1990 running catalogue.
The partnership will yield a total of six shoes inspired by some of DreamWorks’ biggest entertainment franchises, including Kung Fu Panda, Where’s Wally (Waldo), Shrek, Felix the Cat and Skeletor.
First up is the Kung Fu Panda-themed collab using Diadora’s classic S8000 sneaker. It will land in all seven Bait stores and online at Baitme.com on May 28.
After that, another style will be released every few weeks. The Where’s Wally style will also utilize the S8000 sneaker, with the Shrek, Felix the Cat and Skeletor releases using Diadora’s N9000 retro running silhouette.
All the limited-edition shoes will be available in unisex sizes, priced between $200-$300; the Shrek and Felix the Cat styles will be sold in toddler sizes for $80.
