Hanon has teamed up with Diadora to revisit the “Spirit of ’83,” which is a tribute to Aberdeen Football Club and its finest moment in May 1983, when on a rainy night in Sweden, a team of 11 Scots players led by upcoming manager Alex Ferguson won the European Cup Winners Cup.
As a nod to that moment, they’re set to release a special edition of the Diadora Squash court shoe. Dressed in a Sky Blue, Black and White color scheme to mimic the colors of the St. Clair. Handcrafted in Italy, it comes constructed in a luxurious pig suede upper that’s offset with a kangaroo leather tongue and heel tab, calf leather lining and footbed, and ostrich leather side stripe.
Additional details includes emboss treatment at each heel with “112” depicting the time of the winning goal whilst dual branding is featured on each tongue and backtab. Both the footbed and tongue backer are leather laminated and a rain pattern is printed on the insole to depict the weather on the night of the Final. Lastly, the side stripe applied to the medial side of the foot is finished in Silver Grey to commemorate the Cup win.

Limited to only 150 pairs, the Hanon x Diadora Squash “St. Clair” will be release at an invitation only event on Wednesday, October 25th from 4PM to 7PM. For more details on how to attend the event, click here.
