Jan. 20, 2023: Extra Butter has teamed up with Diadora to give the S8000 sneaker a new look. The Extra Butter x Diadora S8000 “Giallo 2.0” — which will release alongside a private label collection from the retailer — is a tribute to Giallo, a niche film genre of Italian horror from the 1970s. The made in Italy sneaker is executed with a multicolor palette on its premium pig suede and leather uppers. What’s more, the tongue and footbed of the sneakers feature ornate geometric embellishments that Extra Butter said should be easily recognizable from hardcore horror fans as deep cut Giallo film references. The Extra Butter x Diadora S8000 “Giallo 2.0” will launch exclusively in-store at Extra Butter on Jan. 27 at 11 a.m. ET and online via Extrabutterny.com on Jan. 28 at 9 a.m. ET.
