LABEL LOWDOWN: Diadora
When picking your summer-suitable sneakers this season, you might want to bypass your comfort zone and consider the retro brand making a stamp this year. Diadora's Italian craftsmanship, slender design and punchy colourways first made their mark in 1987 with the Borg Elite tennis court shoe, worn by champ Bjorn Borg. Almost 30 years later, the heritage style has had a SS16 update. Along with N-9000, N-92, and Camaro, Diadora's collection now boasts modern metallic details, lightweight mesh, technical leathers and colourways that'll blow the socks off your standard tennis whites.
