Diadora is getting more daring with its inline releases, realizing that it doesn't necessarily need the help of outside partners to create themed shoes.

This new N.9000 effort proves that with a red, white, and blue colorway that looks to be inspired by the American flag. There's some irony in an Italian-made sneaker sporting a U.S.A. colorway, but that shouldn't stop true patriots from enjoying this starred and striped retro.

This Diadora releases on April 8 at Solebox in Germany—no word on an arrival in the country it's tied to yet.

Per Solebox, this is part of a wider "Flag Pack" of sneakers from Diadora.
