This Seasons Made In Italy Borg Elite Collection
The Diadora Borg Elite is back and is comprised of a duo of clean and simple Gold and Silver colourways with matching metallic accents. As the name suggests, the Borg Elite was the signature shoe for Swedish tennis pro, Bjorn Borg, and became a cult-classic when it dropped in 1978. Renowned for being as popular on-court, as it was off, throughout the 1980’s, the model made its long awaited come back earlier this year.Unlike the rest of the Borg Elite collection in this seasons Diadora Heritage Collection, these two special models feature the Made In Italy logo.
Both of these Italian made originals are constructed in soft white leather, which is offset by gold or silver accents on the form stripes, tongue and heel branding. The white continues on to the midsole for a clean look, whilst the ever popular choice of a gum outsole completes the look nicely. They are surely a must have for anyone’s sneaker collection as the nights begin to draw in.
