Diadora first debuted the Mythos 280 as part of its 2009 running catalogue, and now the classic running sneaker is set to see a re-release for the first time ever. Returning to celebrate Gelindo Bordin, who became the first ever Italian distance runner to win the Olympic Games‘ marathon in 1988, the Mythos is an important part of brand history. This importance is amplified by the fact that Bordin is now Diadora’s marketing and merchandising director.

Uppers are constructed from a retro silver and black mesh, one that’s accented with swooping heel and cut-out forefoot overlays. A signature Diadora logo appears on the midfoot, connected to the forefoot overlay for a unique look. Red hits are introduced on the heel and toebox, while tongues feature a special graphic that combines a golden Olympic wreath with an Italian flag and one more Diadora hit. Down below, EVA foam midsoles are reinforced with wavy red TPU plates, providing a blend of responsiveness and comfort.

The Diadora Mythos 280 will release via the Diadora webstore come February 20, and is limited to a scant 600 pairs. A retail price has yet to be announced.
