For over 100 years, Dunlop have been providing each generation with ‘the perfect plimsolls’.
The Dunlop Volley was first produced in 1939 and is one of the most popular trainers styles available today. It was created by tennis legend Arian Quist after he sought inspiration from a Dunlop tyre tread. The idea was to produce a practical trainer; a plimsoll that would not only look great, but have the same sturdiness under foot and be able to cope with any terrain like the tyre could.
The latest Dunlop Volley range is available in various base colours such as white, black, blue and grey – all incorporating bold accents for a splash of colour and to highlight specific sections and/or detailing.
Our favourite model from the current collection comes in the form of the white body plimsoll with striking green and yellow accents. The accent colours have been used purely around the back heel, leaving the rest of the canvas body a clean white. Other details include: A distinctive herringbone tread for that exceptional grip, a white toe cap and Dunlop branding to the back heel, as well as on the sole.
The best thing about these plimsolls is that you don’t really have to worry about gradual wear and tear – they will age nicely over time, creating an almost vintage and worn-in effect. Plus, they come in relatively cheap and are easy to replace.
With over 25 million pairs of the volley been sold worldwide, it makes them one of the biggest sellers of any shoes to date – which is quite an accomplishment we think you’ll agree.
Being worn by many popular artists in the music industry – such as Example, The Drums and The Pigeon Detectives to name a few – we think you can’t go wrong by adding a pair of these stylish plimsolls to your collection.
