#kixspotted Diadora Hordan


Diadora Hordan blue colorway
Here is another basketball shoe from Diadora called the Hordan. Retailing under P3,000 (Php 2,995 to be exact), this is a great option if you are looking for a basketball shoe that will be suitable outdoors while still on a budget. A combination of textile upper with leather overlays, the Hordan is built like any modern shoe, as it has little to no break-in time thanks to the upper material. The midsole is composed of an EVA foam which has some give to it. The insole is also well padded so as I said earlier, whether you play indoors or outdoors you it is going to be a bit forgiving to your knee joints. For durability, the solid rubber outsole is thick enough that it could take a beating from the concrete courts especially here in the Philippines where most basketball courts are made from cement. While Diadora is known for its running and lifestyle shoes, it is good to know that they are also starting to expand on basketball shoes. Sure, the midsole and outsole toolings are being shared from its other models namely the Kurtis and Harier, but you can see that they are in the right direction as they were able to utilize these toolings to lower the cost of their kicks but also add some variety by using different materials in the upper as well as coming up with some good designs. Available now in 2 color options (blue and black), you can check out the Diadora section of Planet Sports Trinoma branch in case you wanted to cop a pair.
