Italian high performance footwear brand Diadora is releasing a beautiful retro pair of sneakers from circa 1984 as part of their heritage collection. The shoe was originally designed for an Italian professional basketball team, and is previewed today for the first time, the same day as another shoe designed for a basketball player who has spent some time in Italy. And though Kobe might have more clout in the basketball world, that doesn’t take away from the fact that the Diadora Mi Basket ‘84 certainly matches his shoe in beauty of design.

The premium rerelease sits in a high-top with a suede upper and with leather accents and white midsole with a gum rubber bottom. You should be able to pick up the sneaker sometime soon.
