For many trainer fetishists, Italian sportswear brand Diadora still enjoy something bordering on legendary status for their lasting contribution to the Eighties casualwear scene. After slipping off the radar somewhat in recent years, the brand has announced it's re-launching some of their classic styles this Autumn, starting with the hallowed 'B. Elite'.
First launched back in 1981 for Swedish tennis legend Bjorn Borg, the B. Elite's white and gold styling and kangaroo leather finish still manages to look fresh three decades later. It's exclusively available at London trainer specialists Foot Patrol from this Friday in a limited-edition run of just 100 pairs. footpatrol.co.uk
