The Diadora Aberdeen Trainer Has Now Arrived At 80s Casual Classics

Alex Ferguson took the managerial reigns of Aberdeen F.C. in 1978, before joining Manchester United in 1986 with even greater success. Fergie brought European... Read More

Classic 90s Runners From The Diadora Archive

The Diadora N9002 trainer continued the running legacy of the N. Series, the all singing, the all dancing and the all colourful performance led running series. After signing for Juventus from Fiorentina in 1990 for a world record fee of £8 million at the time, Italia 90′ was Roberto Baggio’s moment to shine. Even though he only started in four of Italy’s games due to Italy’s manager Azeglio Vicini preferring to start Gianluca Vialli, he still manged to bag the goal of the tournament. Baggio’s wonder goal in the group... Read More

Diadora Borg Elite: The Original 80s Tennis Classic & Still The Best

If a single pair of trainers could sum up the 80s casual era it would probably be the Diadora Borg Elite, as famously worn by the tennis legend himself. It would be very surprising these days if for example the likes of Novak Djokovic was to endorse a pair of trainers and create a cult following in the process. In fact it would almost certainly never happen. Its not because Djokovic isn’t a world class tennis player or that he doesn’t have any fans, it simply comes down to one thing…panache. Panache...
