BAIT is starting off 2016 in collaborative form, teaming up with Diadora to produce this premium edition of its retro N9000 sneaker.

The shoe, designed and produced in Italy, finds its inspiration in the nights of Venice. The shades of the shoe's upper reflect those of the night sky in the historic city, while the sole is speckled with the sands of Italy.

Materials include augusta leather and a snake-skin corrugation that's made to age with wear.

The "Notti Veneziane" Diadora N9000 by BAIT ($220) will release on Saturday, Jan. 9, at all BAIT chapter stores in men's sizes 4 through 12, 13 and 13.5. Online shoppers can enter a raffle for a chance to purchase here.
