The Diadora S8000 “Espresso Ristretto” that’s releasing later this week is a resurrected prolific running shoe from 1990 and is proudly crafted in Italy.
Italian sportswear brand Diadora has been using the N9000 as the silhouette of choice for its past collaborations, but that’s about to change. The brand tapped into its 1990 catalog archive to revive the S8000, a top running model back in the day.
This upcoming release is named “Espresso Ristretto”, and besides the premium materials used and unique color palette, what’s impressive about it is the fact that the shoes are constructed at Diadora’s Caerano San Marco Factory in Italy. The uppers of this sneaker are made up of mesh, along with premium suede panels in grey and black as well as turquoise accents.
The Diadora S8000 “Espresso Ristretto” is set to release on July 18th for £125. Only a select number of stockists will be selling them; check out the full list here.
