Heritage footwear brands such as Diadora ride off of nostalgia, and this couldn’t be truer for its latest sneaker offering, the B.560 Used Italia.

Like all of its finest pairs, this sneaker is made in Italy using the highest-quality materials in its wheelhouse. The upper is made from full-grain cow leather that’s micro-perforated on the vamp and stonewashed and wax-treated across its entirety, giving the shoe its namesake “Used Italia” look and feel.

With this, Diadora adds a slight amount of creasing to the vamp and worn-out black smudges, looking like bruises to the leather, towards the front quarter of the sneaker. The aged aesthetic is continued with an EVA and rubber sole unit that’s tastefully yellowed, while heel embroidery quoting “Diadora 1990” and plastic eyelets in a washed-out black hue add to the vintage look.

This all comes together for a sneaker that pays homage to Diadora’s tennis legacy, specifically highlighting its success when being worn by the likes of Boris Becker and Bjorn Borg in the ’90s.

To get this hit of nostalgia for yourself, head over to Diadora’s website and pick up a pair of the B.560 Used Italia for £230 GBP (approx. $270 USD).
