As Diadora round off their 70th birthday year, we are proud to join forces on a brand new collaboration. To follow our special make up of the ‘Aberdeen’ - a 1979 court shoe reimagined in a luxurious material treatment, we’ve produced an ‘Aberdeen’ Anorak in a matching colourway.
The ‘Aberdeen’ Anorak is inspired by the 80’s football fan’s iconic outfit and comes in a predominantly grey nylon shell with contrasting pops of fiery red on the collar, velcro closure and Kangaroo pocket. The anorak is a half-zip pullover and features a tonal pack-away adjustable hood, Kangaroo zip pocket with double side entry zip pockets, and a large side zip on the right side. Further details come in the form of dual branded sleeve print, a 3M adjustable draw cord at the hem, and HANON ‘Aberdeen’ branding which features on the tongue of our Diadora ‘Aberdeen’.
The 70th anniversary celebrations continue as Diadora call on our longstanding partnership with the brand, specifically our collaborative efforts on silhouettes with historic links to football culture, we will be exclusively releasing the first Pallone d’oro shoe alongside our ‘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.
