London, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 September 2011
The wait is over for Dunlop Volley fans in the UK, with Dunlop this month delighted to launch the iconic range of shoes into the UK.
Worn by millions in Australia since launching in 1939, the Dunlop Volley is the epitome of a comfortable, casual shoe, and with great grip too it is up for just about any adventure.
The history of the Dunlop Volley makes for interesting reading, as it was only by accident that it ever came to exist. Tennis player Adrian Qvist was sent overseas to represent his country in the Davis Cup, and he left his favourite tennis shoes at home. In desperation he borrowed a pair of boat shoes, which he credited with helping Australia win the tournament. Victorious, he returned home and worked with manufacturers to replicate the strong grip and comfortable style of the shoe he wore, and the Dunlop Volley was born.
“As proud Dunlop Volley fans ourselves, we are very excited to finally be bringing this Australian icon to the UK,” says Heath Tully from Dunlop Volley UK. “We urge all Australians to grab a pair, show your true colours.”
Dunlop Volley shoes can be purchased at http://www.dunlopfootwear.co.uk, with free shipping available throughout the UK. There are seven colours to choose from and the first 50 orders on the website also get an exclusive Volley bag.
