How To Care For Your Gola Trainers

Whether you are an avid trainer buyer who likes to stand out in bright and vibrant styles or someone who likes the classic all white designs, keeping your shoes in pristine condition is a must; no one likes to be walking around in dirty sneakers. Eager to learn some key pointers on how to keep your trainers looking fresh, crisp and in tip-top condition? Well, keep on reading, as this post will unveil all the answers.

The one tip we would recommend for cleaning any pair of trainers is to avoid the washing machine. The washing machine will be your worst enemy because it will only lead to running and discolouration of fabrics.

Gola Grandslam Trident Trainers

Our best-selling court trainer Grandslam features a crisp PU white upper. We all know white trainers are the hardest to keep clean, so in order to get the best results when cleaning white PU we would suggest get your hands on a cloth. Damp the cloth in warm soapy water and lightly wipe over the PU to remove any marks or mud.

Gola Men’s Bullet Suede

Another great classic is the Gola Bullet which incorporates a suede upper. When it comes to suede, we believe in prevention over cure, we would highly recommend buying a suede protector spray. Firstly, make sure the trainers are clean and dry, spray the protector spray from a distance and make sure you leave the spray for at least one hour before wearing your trainers. Alternatively, you can use a suede brush in order to clean suede. By nature, suede attracts dust and the beauty of a suede brush is that it removes dust and evens up the texture, making the trainer look as good as new. If you have mud on your trainers, we would highly recommend letting the mud dry and then lightly apply the suede brush to the soiled area.

Gola Women’s Harrier Leather Trident Trainers

A go-to footwear choice for many of our female customers is the black leather Harrier trainer. We would recommend keeping the Harrier style in the original box as this reduces the amount of sunlight exposed to the leather and increases its life span. Keeping Harrier stored in its original box will help prevent the leather fading and cracking.

Vegan Gola Coaster High Rainbow Drop

Gola’s ever popular Coaster Rainbow style is a classic off white canvas demi boot. A top-tip for keeping this style fresh is to use shoe inserts or newspaper to stuff into the inside of the shoe. Creasing and loss of shape are two of the biggest elements that make trainers look worn and distressed. Using shoe inserts or newspaper can help the trainer keep looking fresh and keep its original shape. When it comes to cleaning canvas the best technique is to use a damp cloth and spot clean to remove any marks.

We hope this post has helped you learn some valuable hacks for keeping your trainers looking fresh and crisp.

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!

Which Gola are You? Jonathan Daniel Pryce

For our first collaboration we have teamed up with the author of Garcon Jon, a London based street style blogger and photographer. Jonathan Daniel Pryce established Scotland’s leading street style blog in 2008 and is now based in London working as a street and fashion photographer. His current blog www.garconjon.com focuses on his interest in men’s style in all its forms. Jonathan selected the iconic Gola Harrier trainer, take a look at the video below:


We wanted to get a female perspective, so we travelled across the pond and teamed up with New York based model and blogger Natalie Suarez. Natalie has massive domestic and international appeal and is the author of www.natalieoffduty.com. We have again produced a street style shoot and short video highlighting the Gola Comet plimsoll that Natalie likes from Gola’s SS15 collections.
