La nuova collezione calzature di Gola Classics

GOLA FOOTWEAR SPRING SUMMER COLLECTION 2017

 

 

VARSITY

SS17 sees the introduction of a new Gola plimsoll, Varsity. This classic lace-up plimsoll features a canvas upper. This simple, relaxed style is a definite wardrobe essential for the summer months.

 

 

MONACO

New for SS17, Monaco is a re-release of an original ‘80s Gola style. Monaco brings together the best features from the brand’s back catalogue jogger collection. With a traditional running silhouette, Monaco’s upper is a replica of a Gola original from the 1982 catalogue but has been fused with modern materials to give a fresh, almost purist take on an old style. Colour cues are taken from primary influences and the style’s original colour palette of grey and blue tones.

 

 

SPECIALIST

Based on an original multi-purpose training shoe from Gola’s archives, Specialist fuses two training silhouettes from Gola’s 1975 catalogue. Featuring a streamline profile to give a true heritage look, Specialist sports a stylish suede upper and comes in a variety of stand-out colours. A low profile option, Specialist features a short toe vamp as detailed in heritage track footwear, the style is complemented with deep edge foxing which, back in the ‘70s, was originally incorporated for protection and assisted performance in track and field events. Today it just looks good!

 

 

TENNIS ‘79 MESH

Born from Gola’s long association with racquet sports, Tennis ’79 made its debut in 1979. First reintroduced for SS16, Tennis ’79 has since become a Gola bestseller. SS17 sees the introduction of Tennis ’79 Mesh. Originally a leather style, mesh fabric has been used to make it more suited to warmer weather without compromising on style. Details include a subtle stitched wingflash, a leather toe and tongue as well as gold branding on the tongue and a stand-out gold heel return.

 

 

COASTER PRINT

Originally launched in 1976 Coaster was introduced as a ‘superior quality canvas sports and leisure shoe’. This retro plimsoll design comes in a selection of prints for SS17. Building on Gola’s British roots, Coaster Print is inspired by British weather.

 

 

RELAY GLIMMER

Gola introduces Relay, a brand new style for SS17. Relay features a classic Gola trainer upper giving it a real ‘90s vintage aesthetic while a phylon midsole ensures optimum comfort. This on-trend style features metallic detailing across the range, giving it a fresh and youthful vibe.

 

 

HARRIER SQUARED

A seasonal and contemporary take on Gola’s iconic Harrier is Harrier Squared. This eye- catching style features a punched suede upper and a contrast sole unit. For SS17 Harrier Squared comes in a trend relevant, pastel colour palette which really complements this summer style. Subtle Gola branding can be seen on both the wingflash and tongue.

 

Brand History

 

Gola Classics
100 anni di storia – 100 anni di esperienza.
 
Gola nasce nel 1905 in Inghilterra, più precisamente a Manchester, come produttore di scarpe da calcio realizzate interamente in pelle, addirittura tacchetti e suola erano in pelle! Ancora oggi l’azienda possiede un paio di queste scarpe da calcio nel proprio museo.
 
 
 
 
Negli anni ‘60 l’azienda era lo sponsor tecnico della squadra di calcio del Liverpool, ma Gola non si fermò al calcio e, nel corso degli anni ‘70, ideò scarpe per leggende dello sport britannico quali Mark Cox (Tennis), Barry John (Rugby) ed Alan Knott (Cricket). Durante lo stesso periodo, Gola Classics supportò anche la squadra calcistica del Manchester United non solo con le scarpe ma anche con tute, calzoncini e T-shirt.
 
 
 
 
Nel 1999 Gola Classics si avvicinò anche al mondo della moda ed incominciò subito alla grande, disegnando le sneakers per il gruppo musicale “Blur”. In seguito divennero fan del marchio inglese anche Robbie Williams, Jude Law, Paul Weller e Nicole Kidman.
Gola Classics è riuscito a diventare un marchio di elevato profilo e fama internazionale, allargando il proprio raggio d'azione non solo nel campo delle calzature ma proponendo anche abbigliamento ed accessori senza mai dimenticare le proprie radici sportive, riuscendo a creare un suo personale stile fashion/sportivo unico al mondo.
 
 
 
 
Gola collabora con artisti e creativi di tutto il mondo per proporre sempre nuove linee grintose e spiritose, all’insegna di un design vivace e colorato; ecco come è nata la collezione TADO, ispirata al mondo dei fumetti digitali, dallo stile unico, originale e divertente.
