Volley – The Sole of Australia
Who knew that sliced bread was introduced to Australia in 1939?
Coincidentally that’s also the same year that the Volley brand was first brought to life in the form of a classic tennis shoe.
Roll on to 2011 when the Volley International was resent to its original specifications. At the same time, a number of older styles, lost to the archives, were revamped and re-launched.
Another milestone soon followed when The Volley International was announced as the official casual shoe of the 2012 Australian Olympic Team . Worn by the entire team during the Opening and Closing ceremonies in London, this was a very proud moment in the long history of the brand.
Since its inception, Volley has not only made a significant mark on the Australian sports culture but has been part of the fabric of Australian popular culture too. Favoured by Aussie rock legend Angus Young of ACDC, and indie artist Ben Lee, Volley has always enjoyed a relationship with music and music lovers. The shoes have starred in music videos, TV shows and movies and have reached fashionable heights on the feet of supermodel Miranda Kerr.
Never before has there been a shoe with such broad ranging appeal. Volley truly is the quintessential Australian icon.
