Gola has grown from humble beginnings to become an internationally recognised brand. Today, we have customers across the globe and are famous for our selection of trainers, plimsolls and bags.
However, our brand has very humble beginnings and was born in 1905 in a small factory in central England. Soon, our shoe designs soared in popularity and we began expanding our range to suit changing trends and our customers’ demands.
Despite two World Wars and countless commercial competition, we continued to build on our knowledge and experience and before we knew it, Gola was the number one sportswear brand of the 1960s and ‘70s, and the go-to range for passionate fans and professional sportspeople.
We’re very proud of our roots and journey to the top. Some of our personal Gola highlights have to be the international craze that followed the launch of the Harrier in the late 1960s and the iconic Gola bag in the early 1970s. Throughout the 1970s, Gola was also seen on the pitches of major football clubs. Even to this day, we proudly combine British heritage with contemporary designs by merging original Gola styles with the latest trends.
It's fair to say that Gola has stood the test of time and made its mark on the fashion world and we’re happy to say that we’ve never lost that mindset of creating high-quality footwear and accessories for anyone who loves style and sport.
