It’s always exciting when you see a brand going great guns to revamp their line-up – and that’s exactly what Diadora are up to at the minute.
The original Diadora Evoluzione K Pro was one of our favourite ‘niche’ releases of last year. Not only were they an absolutely cracking football boot, but they enjoyed a good chunk of time in the spotlight on the feet of Antonio Cassano at Euro 2012.
Now, Diadora have given them a slight name-change and a fresh set of features as they aim to be the brand to watch in the 2013-14 season.
After the synthetic GLX-whatchamacallit, Diadora continue their illustrious heritage of using top-notch K-Leather on the DD-Evoluzione 2 K.
The entire upper is made of K-Leather, but the forefoot boasts the headline addition to the DD-Evoluzione 2: a ‘Touch Control’ finish, not too dissimilar to what we’ve seen on boots from other companies in the past.
Inside, the boot boasts a special liner which allows the boot to mould to a player’s feet, but won’t stretch the leather out of it’s intended shape, and a' Ergos NP anatomical footbed with DA2 Double Action, supporting the foot throughout a variety of stressful motions.
Probably best of all, though, is that this boot will skim just under the $140 mark in the US – which is a pretty wallet-friendly price-point for a feature-packed K-Leather boot.
