Gola was born in 1905 in a small factory in central England. Gola holds a treasured place in British sporting history having been associated with some of the biggest names in sport from the worlds of football, rugby, tennis, athletics and boxing. Gola’s unique and fascinating story has seen the brand conquer various trials and tribulations to become the number one British sportswear brand of the day in the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Today, Gola’s quintessentially British personality and vast sporting heritage are creatively combined with today’s key fashion looks. This ethos has paved the way for many successful collections, cementing Gola’s reputation for offering genuine styled merchandise to those who choose not to follow the crowd.
Tennis – Mark Cox. Based on an original Gola style from 1975 that was worn by tennis player Mark Cox, Tennis truly embraces Gola’s long history with racquet sports. This men's tennis inspired plimsoll features an off-white upper, with a contrasting dark green wingflash. Gold Gola branding can be seen on the tongue and heel-turn. This style comes in off White/Dark Green and off-white/deep red.
The coaster is a vulcanised sole plimsoll, the style is popular as it literally goes wit anything! The Coaster was re-introduced into the Gola Classics collection in SS17 and became a best seller, the Coaster Rainbow is one of our most popular Coaster designs – so much so we sell out on a regular basis! Make sure you keep your eye out for the next drop in September – get them before they go!
