Our country may be full of industrious cobblers, but in the pantheon of iconic Australian designs, few shoes make the grade. Volley is one of them, a tried, tested and un-mess-with-able sneaker that has stood the test of time.
In recent years, Volley have been making some minor tweaks to update their range, and the latest comes courtesy of Simon Miller, the US designer best known for what he can do with a pair of selvage jeans.
Thing is, these shoes are not available for sale. And when we say they’re limited edition, we are not joking: there are only 50 pairs in the entire country. We’ve got two (in mens sizes – sorry ladies), and while we’d dearly like to hang on to them, we won’t.
If you want to get your hands on one of the two pairs we have to give away, email your shoe size to firstname.lastname@example.org with Volleys! in the subject line and just tell us why you want ’em.
