Sports team manufacturer Diadora is digging deep into its old roots for the stylish design of the company's new Mi Basket 84 sneaker for Fall 2011. The Mi Basket 84 sneaker is based on "the design originally introduced in 1984 for the professional Italian basketball team Olimpia Milano." The Mi Basket 84 sneaker breaks away from much of today's wannabe retro-inspired footwear with its authentic heritage and vintage-inspired design.

The shoe simultaneously exudes hipster, retro and classic stylish qualities. The Mi Basket 84 sneaker is available in three different color combos including white and red, white and navy and black and white. The leather exterior, high-top cut and extra-big tongue printed with 'Diadora' give the shoe that extra hit of vintage. The Mi Basket 84 sneaker is set to his stores sometime this summer.
