The 70th anniversary celebrations continue as Diadora call on Hanon's longstanding partnership with the brand, specifically their collaborative efforts on silhouettes with historic links to football culture, they will be exclusively releasing the first Pallone d’oro shoe alongside the ‘Aberdeen’ Anorak.
Pallone d’oro pays homage to the players who wore Diadora boots during the late 80’s and early 90’s and won the Pallone d’oro. Utilizing the iconic and recognizable upper of the 90’s football boot, the Diadora Pallone d’oro is handcrafted entirely in Italy and has been combined with an indoor football outsole.
Utilizing only the most premium materials, the upper comes dressed in soft black Kangaroo leather with material contrast applied in the form of premium suede on the toe bumper and lower mid-section of the shoe. The striking Diadora logo on each side is double layered using premium leather and appears in clean white backed with gold.
Attention to detail is applied via a gold print on the white premium leather heel tab which features the Diadora logo and a small Italian flag. The Diadora logo can also be found in gold embroidery on the tongue with the original ‘Made in Italy’ tag line recalled from the OG football boot.
The removable insole comes in the form of a printed textile base which features the three champion’s football boot colourways and is finished with stitched leather top layer printed with a gold Diadora logo. Rounding off the package, the bespoke shoe box has numerous details, such as the Diadora logo printed with the colours of the champion’s flags on top of a faded Diadora logo pattern, as well as gold laminate details that highlight the first letter and jersey number of each champion – MV9, RB10, and GW9.
