The classic Australian shoe for men, women and kids, Dunlop Volleys are as iconic as a koala or a summer BBQ. Used as the go-to brand for children's school shoes, ideal for crossfit athletes, and even just for casual walking, Dunlop Volley shoes are the multi-purpose shoe that is still a favourite among families and individuals.
History of the Volleys
Dunlop Volleys have enjoyed a rich history within the public eye. Originally developed in 1939 as a tennis shoe, it was also worn by members of the Australian Army and the RAAF up until the 1980s. They were also part of the official Australian team uniform for the 2012 Olympic Games. Despite their colourful history, they have still managed to only have had minor changes to its original design.
Nowadays, Volleys are seen on the feet of just about anyone – young or old, male or female, student or teacher, trainer or athlete – and their simple design makes them easy to match with any piece of clothing.
Features of the Dunlop Volleys
With its distinctive herringbone tread, Volleys are famous for their excellent grip. The shoe is a favourite among parkour practitioners, canyoners, and roofers, as well as tradespeople (when developed with steel caps to meet work safety requirements.)
The ideal all-purpose shoes, Volleys provide a flat, solid base for weighted exercises, but also allow wearers to run comfortably in them as well. The weight is easily kept in the heel due to the flat sole.
Today, the shoe's standard design is white with a 3-stripe woven tape on the heel. An all-black version with a green and gold stripe is also available. There are also available in an assortment of colours and styles to suit anyone's taste.
