Gola Classics SS15 Summer Favourites

At long last summer is here and with it comes the time to spruce up your wardrobe in preparation for the warmer months ahead. Whether you are sticking it out here in Blighty or jetting off to sunnier climes, you can always get your feet ready for the summer sun with a pair of Britain’s much-loved Gola Classics.

It’s not like you ever really need an excuse to up your footwear game though, is it? We already know that our Gola trainers are loved all year round but here we have picked out a few of our favourite men’s and women’s styles for summer – let us know if you agree!

For the ladies out there we have picked out three fabulously guileful designs which all take elements of our brand’s classic styles and mix them with modern features to secure their place in the Gola Classics SS15 range.

Gola classics Samuarai Hibiscus

First up, the women’s Samurai Hibiscus trainer blends pale pink and grey tones with our vibrant Hibiscus floral pattern to produce a great looking and functional 80s-inspired jogging shoe. All in all the Samurai is a comfortable and reliable shoe which is ideal for roaming around in the sun.

Secondly we call up another classic jogger silhouette in the shape of the women’s Shinai trainer. This shoe boasts a darker colourway than the Samurai with its focus on purples and blacks, but also features contrasting streaks of light blue – such as the quintessential Gola wingflash –and a speckled phylon sole which give this trainer a life of its own.

Finally, why not go bold with the women’s Delta Hibiscus plimsoll? Like the Shamurai, the Delta also features our Hibiscus floral pattern but this time in an all-over design with a chunky sole. A great design for the beach as it easily slips on and off.

Mens Gola

Now for the gentlemen out there! Our first shoe is the men’s Quota plimsoll which is a brilliant low-profile blue fashion pump with a contrasting green Gola wingflash. The Quota comes in an authentic worn look which makes it perfect for anyone going for a vintage look this summer.

Next up, the relaxed men’s Comet Chambray plimsoll is another light shoe which will be a great addition to your SS15 wardrobe. With enhanced comfort from its padded lining and a contrasting wingflash against a chambray upper, this trainer will work with a whole host of relaxed summer outfits.

And to finish we bring you the men’s Super Harrier trainer which is based on the classic 1970s Harrier design. Originally developed for squash and badminton, the Harrier soon became a fashion trainer popular in its own right and now it’s back for SS15 with a light blue nylon and suede upper and a new-look toe and bumper.

Kayla Hadlington- Which Gola Are You?

We asked fashion blogger Kayla Hadlington… Which Gola are you?

I’ve been so excited to finally wear these Gola plimsolls, they’re super comfy and it was such a nice day yesterday I decided to go out and shoot them in this rather lovely weather! The print on the trainers is a collaboration with Liberty London, it makes them feel extra special! I’ve been a big fan of Liberty fabrics for absolutely ages and whenever I go into store I love to go and stare at the fabrics and decide which ones if I would purchase if, yknow.. if I were super rich. This particular fabric is adorable as its their Alice in Wonderland print (hence the title, We’re All Mad Here!!!!) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland! I think my favourite part of the print is how how on one of the toe on the left trainer theres a cute little picture of Humpty Dumpty so whenever I glance down I see him staring up at me which makes me chuckle.

I wasn’t too sure which colour were my favourite, I’m probably going to have to go with pink though as, well, I always choose pink lets face it haha! I’m totally considering wearing one of each colour on each foot, I don’t know why I didn’t think of that for the shoot ahh!! Think I could get away with it?? They look super adorable with little frill socks and jeans or as these are quite girly and cute I would totally wear them with a cute little dress if I wanted to dress or skirt it down a bit.

As the campagin is called #WhichGolaAreYou and I had both of the colours for these trainers I decided to try out two different outfits in a how-to-wear-your-Golas kinda thing, honestly my favourite outfit is definitely the mom jean outfit however I also really like the long socks and the tropical tshirt look which is very summery! think they’d also look super cute with a tennis skirt!
