Diadora's premium performance shoe, the Speed B.Icon 2 gets updated with some slight changes to the upper and Diadora's anatomical insole for shock proof cushion. Taking the midsole superfoam from their premium running shoes and infusing it into the B.Icon, you'll find great shock absorption, while also being extremely light, and responsive. The D-Skin upper material hugs the foot uniformly to help maximize the support, and to reduce stress on pressure points. An outer hook on the lateral side of the shoe is connected to the lacing system, which helps to lock-in the heels, and boost support around the ankles. Tried and true Duratech 5000 rubber compound provides a high level of wear resistance, and plenty of traction a variety of court surfaces.
