Diadora B. Original Sponge 04.14.18

In the year of the brand’s 70th anniversary Diadora continues to celebrate its tennis heritage. After the launch of the B.Elite Pro now the Italian brand comes out with another premium Made in Italy smash — a unique new touch to the iconic B.Original. Originally dating to 1979, this shoe with full-grain leather upper and vamp reinforcement got developed expressly to give an extra boost to the fastest players.

Like the original, the brand new B.Original Sponge is entirely made in Italy with premium leather. Also, it features a distinctive hand crafted wax finish and, in a nod to the headbands and wristbands worn by famous ‘80s tennis players, a new punch needle embroidery logo. The shoe’s dirty, beat-up look, as well as the crushed effect of the genuine leather, is designed to spark memories of the hardest-fought wins on the court.

Devoted to people on the hunt for Diadora archive pieces, this hot new item will be available for purchase in a limited edition of only 350 pairs worldwide.

The Diadora B. Original Sponge drops Saturday, April 14th online at 12:00 AM EST.  Remaining pairs will be released in store at our Yorkville location.
