Volley Footwear drops this new video on us showcasing the “Search for Australia’s Well Worn Volleys”. Quintessentially Australian sneakers like no others, this video gives us a look at the proud history of this footwear brand, from its humble roots the a Dunlop rubber factory where Adrian Quist worked.
In 1939, Quist, a Davis Cup winning tennis player, wanted to create athletic shoes that emulated the grip that boat shoes offered. Taking rubber from his workplace, and a bit of good old fashioned Aussie ingenuity, he developed the first pair of Volleys. And now, in 2011 Volley is stronger than ever. A great canvas sneaker from down under, we can’t wait to see how the new line measures up to our Converses.
