Combating a time of rampant piecemeal creations, Diadora and their staple Maverick silhouette are back once more as if ripped straight from 1987. A hallmark of the era’s tennis scene as well as its surrounding fashion culture, the Italian brand made quite the name for themselves with the simple low-top arguably at the helm. Luxe fabrications and clean aesthetics make for a pair fully retro, reviving with near perfect translation as it hits shelves in 2019. Three parts — one blue, one black, and the last green — dress up each of the white calfskin leathers with textural fabrications of an almost velvety nubuck. Placed atop the side striping as well as the heel wrap and lining, each individual hue stands out out far along their own with subtle nods to the label’s country of origin. Grab a detailed look at the entire collection right here, and if you’re interesting in grabbing a set for yourself, they’ll be returning this Saturday, October 19th at PackerShoes.com.
