One of the oldest shoe brands on the market,
Gola retains historic style and quality.
It all started in1905 when Gola created first pair of hand made football boots in a small workshop in England. Since then the brand has survived two World Wars, and many many challenges, only to rise on top as one of the best sportswear brands of the 1960's and 70's.
Gola shoes were even worn by some of the best sports stars!
Today, while using modern technology to design and create a full line of footwear, Gola retains many of its authentic qualities by combining natural materials with today’s most sought after trends.
I had the opportunity to try the
Women's Quota in Black
which retail for $55
The Gola Quota is a fashion inspired trainer.
Quota features a washed cotton canvas upper to give an authentic worn look.
After the initial new-shoe smell off-gassed, and I was able to give them a try, these were wonderfully comfortable and have a great casual style. Nothing rubs my toes or ankles which is amazing since this is always an issue with me and shoes. I generally take a size 7.5 in ladies and even though it recommends to go up a size for half sizes, I went with a size 7 and they fit perfectly with a sport sock.
My standing bare foot measurements are:
from tip of big toe to heel: 22cm
Widest part of foot : 8.8cm
These are one of my favorite pairs of casual shoes, I only wish they would make them in organic cotton! How awesome and authentic would that be?!
