Extra Butter and Diadora Celebrate Classic Horror with the S8000 “Giallo 2.0”

Devin Robertson

Extra Butter and Diadora are bridging the gap between sneakerheads and horror film fans with the release of the upcoming Diadora S8000 “Giallo 2.0” and the accompanying private label Extra Butter collection. The sneaker is the sequel to the duo’s 2016 effort and pays homage to a niche genre of Italian horror films from the 1970s. 

“The term Giallo literally translates to yellow, which was originally a literary reference to yellow-colored paperbacks of Italian mystery novels in the 1930s that focused on themes that influenced a movement for Italian filmmakers decades later,” says Extra Butter Creative Director, Bernie Gross. “Unlike the classic American slashers that relied on gore and jump-scare tactics, Giallo films were more psychological and featured highly styled cinematography. The use of vivid colors that contrasted darker, macabre scenes became the inspiration for designing the S8000’s color story.”

Crafted in Italy, the silhouette pays utmost attention to craftsmanship and features a blend of premium quality pig suede and leather. The tongue is adorned with a geometric pattern that hardcore fans recognize as a deep-cut reference to Giallo films. The colorway blends shades of pink and purple and features Extra Butter branding on the left heel. The Extra Butter x Diadora “Giallo 2.0” will retail for $240.

The S8000 Giallo 2.0 will be exclusively launching at Extra Butter in-store Friday, January 27 at 11AM and online at on Saturday, January 28th at 9am EST.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
