It is hard to deny the sheer beauty of some of the landscapes which we are lucky to be blessed with here in Britain. In order to celebrate these national treasures we have developed the hiking-inspired ‘National Parks’ pack Gola Ridgerunner. Inspired by the great outdoors Ridgerunner is packed full of autumnal colours reminiscent of our stunning countryside.
Gola Ridgerunner ‘Yorkshire Dales’
The Yorkshire Dales is situated in an upland area of the Pennines in Northern England. This historic area is famous for its Three Peak treks which take on Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, with many people attempting and succeeding to tackle all three in one day. Our Yorkshire Dales Ridgerunner trainer is made up of dark, earthy tones including tan, brown and black. It is also available in both low and high-top silhouettes with each featuring a tweed-look inner and cleated hiking style sole.
Gola Ridgerunner ‘Cairngorms’
The Cairngorms is a national park in the eastern Highlands of Scotland which is home to a mountain of the same name. The area is well known for its Caledonian pine forests and some of the best cycling trails available on our shores. The Cairngorm Ridgerunner is inspired by this beautiful location and features brown and tan set upon a background of navy blue with a red and tartan inner and cleated hiking style sole for extra grip.
No matter what time of year it is, a splash of pink will always brighten up your day. You could say it is lucky then that right now on the Gola website, we have dozens of brilliant pink ladies’ shoes and bags which can help add some much needed colour to these cold and grey winter months.
There are plenty of pretty pinks to be found in several of our Harrier trainers, which were originally launched in 1968 and are part of our Gola Classics collection. Whether it is bright pinks against a dark navy suede like these Harrier trainers, or dark, warm pink with a navy wingflash like women’s Harriers, you can always count on pink to bring your Harriers to life.
Our next selection is an eclectic mix made up of three styles which are part of our Gola Classics range. These include black slip-ons with an elegant pink floral print, the 70s tennis classic Orchid in a bright shade of fuschia and last but not least the Gola x Liberty Art Fabrics Samurai which makes great use of one of Liberty’s intricate prints.
Finally, we bring you a trio of bright and bold Gola Classics Redford messenger bags. We have chosen a baby blue and pale pink Redford bags design, an allover pink and fuchsia Redford number and lastly a darker blue, pink and white take on our classic over-the-shoulder bag.
Don’t just take our word for it though, there are plenty more for you to browse and buy in the Gola online store!

Whether we like it or not summer is over and we can now start moaning about how cold, wet and windy it suddenly is. Whilst some of us want to hide away from the elements, many people see this time of the year as the perfect opportunity to release their inner adrenaline junkie and take part in the vast number of obstacle courses or ‘mud runs’ that seem to be popping up all over place. For some of you who may not have come across these events or may have been living under a rock events such as Tough Mudder and Survival of the Fittest are becoming one the fastest growing participation events in the UK.
Unfortunately this year is my turn, having being roped into Survival of the Fittest by my so called friends. Collectively they what a great idea it would be to go running round the Etihad stadium in Manchester, climbing over monkey bars, running up a Gladiator style ‘travelator’ and falling into unthinkably cold water.
When I agreed to take part I first thought was what on earth would I wear? This
answer escaped me until I looked at Gola Active’s AW15 range. This is where I came across the Equinox. These stood out to; me with their lightweight feel and especially the TPR inserts in the sole, which is a necessity when taking part in events such as this. So all that it is to decide now is which colour!
