To join Diadora in their 70th anniversary celebration, Packer pays homage to a special era of the brand’s rich legacy when two of their most critical categories were hitting new high points — early ‘90s tennis and running.

The “ON/OFF” Collection gives a nod to the best of both worlds by taking Diadora’s top of the line tennis and running offerings of the time and reimagining them as a two-pair set, with one intended for the court and the other to wear everywhere else.




Packer x Diadora “ON/OFF” Collection
Made in Italy.

Available 12 noon EST Friday August 24th, exclusively online at packershoes.com and in-store at our Jersey City location while supplies last.

Both pairs are limited in quantities and include special packaging, hangtag and three alternate lace sets.

Packer x Diadora Rebound Ace
$200

Following in the footsteps of other Diadora tennis legends, the early ‘90s saw the emergence of a new crop of stars, and with them, a next generation approach to footwear. The brand’s top players took the court in the Rebound Ace, a shoe that was no stranger to Grand Slam finals appearances.

The Packer “ON/“ edition takes inspiration from Diadora’s 1991 US Open kits and features a combination of kangaroo and tumbled leather on the upper with open mesh side panels and a micro-perfed toebox for added breathability. Additional details include customized heel loops, lace dubraes and tongue logo badges.

• Kangaroo leather
• Full-grain tumbled leather
• Heavy ribbed nylon
• Open mesh window
• Terrycloth lining
• Heel loops
• Lace dubraes
• Made in Italy

Packer x Diadora N.9002
$200

Diadora broke new ground with the introduction of their N.9000 model, so the bar was set high for its successor. The N.9002, released in 1992, delivered a strong answer with a sleek look, familiar feel and some updated tech like Double Action and Duratech.

The Packer “/OFF“ edition offers a clean and luxurious take on the classic runner with a medley of premium leathers and suedes on the upper, paired with subtle details such as micro-perfing, heel logo badges, reflective 3M accents and an open mesh side panel window.

• Kangaroo leather
• Full-grain tumbled leather
• Premium nubuck
• Hairy suede
• Heavy ribbed nylon
• Open mesh window
• Terrycloth lining
• Reflective 3M
• Heel loops
• Made in Italy

Antonia for Diadora Heritage B. Elite ($250)

Italian boutique Antonia revamps a 1983 tennis model from Diadora called the B. Elite. White kangaroo leather dresses the upper with a unique white, orange, and blue logo with needle punch embroidery inspired by throwback tennis players’ headbands. Dual branding hits the heels in black leather, while white leather lines the interior.

Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com

Hanon x Diadora V.7000 “Tuscan Racer” ($190)

 Hanon pays tribute to Italy’s cycling culture on their rendition of the V.7000 in celeste green. Dubbed the “Tuscan Racer,” this Italian-made version has a premium construction make of kangaroo leather, pigskin nubuck, and mesh. The overlays in white are meant to evoke the tape applied to the handlebars of racing bikes and the color is a tribute to a classic brand of bicycles, while details like Hanon branding pops on the tongue, heel, and footbed.

Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com

Titolo x Diadora Intrepid “Five Almonds” ($200)

Switzerland’s premier sneaker boutique Titolo has partnered with Italy’s Diadora for a colorful rendition of the Intrepid. Italian wedding almonds, steeped in symbolism representing a happy marriage, provide the color inspiration for this vibrant model with shades of lavender, pink, blue, green, and cream. Premium suede makes up the upper, which sits on a white VIBRASSORB midsole for a clean overall look with a unique palate.

Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow at noon in-store at our Jersey City location.

Summer brings three silhouettes of vintage Diadora styling in clean colorways. Two Game Low Waxed colorways reinvigorate the 70s classic tennis model with custom waxed-treated outsoles and full grain leather uppers on a model with a navy stripe and tongue details and another with a green stripe and tongue detailing. The iconic N.9000 III is also available in two colorways, both with mesh, smooth leather, and suede on the uppers over gum soles. One features navy on the heel, beneath the stripe and on the top eyestay, while the other opts for gray in the same locations.  To round out the offerings, the women’s N-92 WNT appears with tan, coral, and white playing off each other in an upper comprised of perforated leather and suede over a gum sole.

Available now in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com

Diadora introduces its Fall 2016 Collection with three different models in multiple color ways and materials. The N.9000 model has four options. One features an earth-toned khaki overlay atop bright coral mesh. Another has the same suede/mesh combination over a mint (Cockatoo) nylon mesh. A second duo offers a khaki base with hits of color as well. The N.9000 Double L adopts a blue toe cap and green heel. The other N.9000 Double L opts for the updated upper in lightweight materials with a black overlay. For the V.7000 model, there is a more traditional neutral colored option in white and Ferrari Red. A knit option is also available on the V.7000 with a woven upper in green olivine for a more lightweight feel. A recent set Olympic releases in the Seoul to Rio pack garnered some attention for the I.C. 4000 model, which gets a steel gray and black treatment with orange pops.
