In 1939 an Australian footwear institution was born when Aussie tennis legend Adrian Quist won the Davis Cup in a pair of borrowed boat shoes. Inspired, he took the shoes back to his job at the Dunlop Rubber Factory and went about emulating the boat shoes’ unique ‘herringbone’ grip in a shoe purpose built for tennis. The Volley was born, and became the tennis shoe of choice for a dynasty of Australian tennis champions.
Roll on to 1976 when Mark Edmonson won the Australian Open wearing a pair of Internationals, and Volley sealed a place in history as the great Australian sports shoe. Not only did this occasion put Volley in the history books, it marked a turning point that would see Volley transcend sporting greatness and enter the Australian psyche as a pop culture icon. Australians all over the country were starting to discover the benefits of this humble homegrown shoe. What was once a sports shoe became ideal for all types of occasions; sports, street, weekend, leisure, even work. Comfort, grip and understated style made Volley as easy to wear on the court, to the beach, to festivals, to navigating the sometimes-slippery floors of a coffee shop.
Volleys have graced the feet of rock legends, supermodels, hipsters, students, baristas and kids alike. Sported by Australians aged from nine to ninety, never before has there been a shoe with such broad ranging appeal. Volley truly is the quintessential Australian icon. Volley is the sole of Australia.
