No stranger to audacious colorways, this latest release in the Diadora DD Eleven range is designed for players who are brimming in confidence and not afraid to have other players laugh at their style! I have to be honest, these things just look plain old funky. Given the fact that the DD Eleven is a solid performer with a very functional soleplate (NET Breathing System), it seems that Diadora are banking on unique looks to grab a section of the market – this version comes in a Silver/Royal/White.
We haven’t seen a new colorway release in the DD Eleven series hit the market in recent times, so I was a little surprised to see this latest version.
The Net Breathing System, which is designed to keep your feet dry and cool by allowing maximum breathability through a waterproof soleplate, is the latest piece of technology released by Diadora. Its effectiveness is up for debate, but from tested the DD Eleven I can tell you that I didn’t notice my feet heating up as much during play. in other words, there were no moments in the game when I thought “dang, my feet are hot right now!”
The upper is a K-leather and because of the inclusion of a touch component along the front of the boot, they fall into the control category. Price wise, they retail for a pretty hefty $200. There is actually plenty of positives about the boot, performance wise, so if you are a Diadora fan and want to try something new they are actually worth considering – that is of course, as long as you like the design!
