DIADORA UNVEILS A PAIR IN TRIBUTE TO FILIPPO INZAGHI
The Italian brand Diadora has unveiled a shoe in tribute to the former striker and glory of AC Milan, a certain Filippo Inzaghi.
Nowadays, Diadora is a brand little known to the general public, especially among young people. However, in the history of soccer, the Italian firm has had its moments of glory as many great players have played with it. George Weah, Marco Van Basten or Filippo Inzaghi to name but a few have played with Diadora shoes.
A RETURN IN 2007
After having winked at George Weah and Marco Van Basten by recreating their shoes of yesteryear, Diadora pays tribute this time to Filippo Inzaghi, a great striker of the 2000s who played for Juventus and AC Milan.
Now reconverted as a coach of the team of Brescia since the season 2021/2022, the one called Pipo Inzaghi made the beautiful days of Milan by scoring 126 goals in 300 games.
The brand has decided to reissue the shoe he wore in the Champions League final in 2007 against Liverpool, during which the Lombardy club won 2-1 with a double … Inzaghi. The player played the game with a pair of Brasil Elite in a black/gold color that have become emblematic colors of the shoe. As the drop in tribute to George Weah, the Italian brand has unveiled its two iconic pairs, the Diadora Brasil as well as the B-Elite Italia.
At first glance, the two pairs may seem very similar. The Diadora Brasil is the same shoe that Inzaghi wore back in the day. In black and gold, we find all the Italian know-how with the famous tongue and its quality leather making the reputation of the brand. Since it is a drop in honor of Inzaghi, the number 9 has been embroidered on the heel of the shoe. This iconic pair is only available in 207 pieces.
The Diadora B-Elite Italia is the other version that is much more modern while keeping the original essence of the Brasil. With its full grain leather and Pebax outsole, this is the lightest pair manufactured by the brand. This pair was designed to meet the criteria of modern soccer.
