Scotland’s Hanon has tapped into football culture when designing Diadora sneakers in the past and delves back in for an upcoming Diadora Squash release. The understated silhouette is set to drop this month.
It’s been nearly 35 years since Aberdeen FC defeated Real Madrid in their first European Cup victory in 1983. To commemorate the St. Clair ferry that transported Scottish fans to Gothenburg on that rainy night, Hanon drew inspiration from the boat to inform the sneaker’s colorway. A “112” on the side marks the time of the winning goal, while a rain pattern on the insole memorializes the weather. The sneaker is crafted in Italy boasting an upper constructed of buttery kangaroo leather.
With only 150 pairs set to release later this month, be sure to check Hanon’s web store on October 28 or head to the in-store release on October 25 to secure a pair. If you want made-in-Italy construction in a chunkier shoe, check out the brand’s recent S8000 release.
