Welcome to the club
In 1939, a tennis champ named Adrian Quist won the Davis Cup in a pair of shoes. Featuring a unique herringbone grip on a soft runner sole, the Volley was born. It wasn’t long until we saw some of the most iconic Australian tennis players take home glory such as Rod Laver, Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Mark Edmondson.
Since our legendary beginning, Volleys have graced courts, roamed streets, strutted across stages and left footprints in our hearts. Fast forward to the present day and Volleys have been rocked by the biggest names in the country such as Chris Hemsworth, Miranda Kerr, Sam Worthington and ACDC’s Angus Young.
Volley, the Sole of Australia.
Looking for the vintage Dunlop Volley? Look no further than the Heritage Range; it’s still the same Volley shoes you have known to love, with a few extra bells and whistles. The Heritage Low is a remake of the original Volley shoes worn by Mark Edmondson, the last Australian to win the Australian Open in 1976. With all the features you already kick in everyday, the Heritage is (and always will be) the perfect shoe for knock-off beers.
The retro silhouette is back and better than ever! The Volley International, our most iconic shoe to date, made its debut in 1975. Soon after, the International made its way into the DNA of Australians for many generations to come. The redesigned style features durable 12oz canvas upper with iconic striped ribbon detailing around the collar serving you a style that teams the 70s iconic vibes with modern, durable quality.
The Deuce adds a fresh new twist to the Volley line-up, with a contemporary construction and sleek design. It’s built for the everyday punter, taking you from your corner hotel to your favourite festival – and we really mean it! The vulcanised construction allows for added strength in the sole to keep you on your toes, hassle free. The slick unisex silhouette comes in either High or Low-top, made with durable 12oz Canvas or premium Nappa leather upper, and features our Iconic herringbone outsole.
Overgrip marks our first venture outside of sneakers and is the perfect style for the cooler months. Expect the signature herringbone outsole and canvas upper for durability and longevity, now with ‘Volley’ embossed aluminium eyelets and DAMPENERTECH10 shock absorbing footbed for all-day comfort.
