The word Diadora comes from the greek διὰ δωρέα “dia-dorea” Which means “to share gifts and honours”.
Quality and workmanship have been hallmarks for the Diadora tennis brand from the days of Borg, Vilas, and Cash in the 70’s and 80’s, Becker, Courier and Kuerten in the 90’s and 00’s, through today. For the discerning tennis player looking for a brand based on heritage and its use of high end materials, great colors and comfort, look no further than Diadora. (have pics of Borg, Vilas, Courier, and Kuerten saved in Diadora shoe folder.)
The Speed Star K model makes use of kangaroo leather for softness, comfort and sensitivity. Use of this material is more common in soccer, but lends itself well to the rigors of tennis, offering a supple, custom feeling fit to the upper. Double Action 2 and Axeler Heel Propulsion further add to the technology features of the Diadora Speed Star. Axeler Heel Propulsion is made from Pebax, a highly elastic memory material. Thanks to a specially contoured insert the Axeler Heel Propulsion ensures maximum shock absorption during impact with the ground. A 2015 Tennis Magazine top pick!
The Speed Pro EVO offers a lightweight option with excellent breathability thanks to the use of Supreltech Air mesh and Dia Shield. Socklike fit with unitongue construction. Also continues the use of Double Action 2 cushioning and Axeler Heel Propulsion. Incredible comfort with a great splash of color! Also highly rated in the 2015 Tennis Magazine shoe ratings issue!
In addition to the latest styles of Diadora, Midwest Sports offers a great selection of past generation models at discount prices. While supplies last!
