Iconic Vol­leys still in vogue

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

THE iconic Aussie sand­shoe – the Vol­ley – is go­ing back to the fu­ture. Later this month, Vol­ley will re­launch two de­signs last seen al­most 40 years ago. As well, cus­to­di­ans of the sneaker want to ex­plore the brand’s rich Aus­tralian his­tory by ask­ing own­ers to trawl their cup­boards to un­earth lost shoes from the Vol­ley ar­chives. ‘‘ Ul­ti­mately, we’d like to find a pair of Vol­leys from 30 or 50 years ago that we can recre­ate and then credit to the Aus­tralian who sent them in,’’ Vol­ley de­signer Jazz Boni­fa­cio said. Evonne Goolagong Caw­ley, who won Wim­ble­don in 1971 wear­ing the leather Vol­ley, has fond mem­o­ries of the shoes. ‘‘ They were my team­mates,’’ she said.
