I think we all know that the tennis legend moved into underwear once his career on the court was brought to an end, but the Bjorn Borg range isn't just that. There are some rather cool retro-style bags and holdalls available too.
Italian sportswear company Diadora still makes some of its products in its home territory, a rarity for a sportswear manufacturer. Saying that, we don't know if it's the case for the newly-reissued premium take on the Borg Original trainers.
Not to be confused with the recently-reissued Borg Elite, This 1980s tennis court classic is back with a bright white leather upper, along with contrasting black logo and trim and on the sides in black. There's also a Ghilly lacing system, a leather tongue and that chunky branded sole.
Available now, £74.99 will secure you a pair. See over the page for another shot.
