The HANON X DIADORA B.ELITE THE SPIRIT OF 83 pays homage to the legendary Aberdeen Football Club team of 1983.
Under the management of a certain Alex Ferguson the Scottish team won their club’s first ever European trophy after dispatching Bayern Munich in the semi-finals and Real Madrid in the finals in Gothenburg, and it is this historic achievement that inspires this latest collaboration between HANON and DIADORA. Fire Red suede covers the majority of the upper, with matching kangaroo leather on the formstripes to create an almost monotone look, which is offset only by the white laminated kangaroo leather on the tongue and matching embroidered branding. The pinstriped lining is a nod to the tops worn by the team during the final and ties together the colours from the upper. Branding includes the HANON text logo on the heel of the right shoe, with DIADORA on the left, whilst the lateral side of the heels sport the flame logo and 83 on the left and right respectively, all of which are embroidered in white. To round things off the flame logo also features on the tongue and the double layered leather insoles, whilst further HANON branding features on the lace tips. A white midsole and red outsole combination not only creates a clean look, but ties the colourway together perfectly. Although it would most definitely help, you don’t have to be an Aberdeen fan to appreciate the great colourway and premium quality of this Made In Italy collaboration.
The HANON X DIADORA B.ELITE THE SPIRIT OF 83 is scheduled to drop on SATURDAY 10 OCTOBER. Make sure to check back with us closer to the time for updates and links to help you try and secure a pair.
