Retro Running Shoe

It's good to have a trusty pair of retro-inspired trainers in your locker - and Diadora's new Heroes line could do that job pretty well. 

We have to admit to having a bit of a soft spot for Diadora at Esquire, something to do with vintage Italian football shirts and pristine 80s casualwear.
