THE UPSIDE’s Founder & Creative Director Jodhi Meares passionately brought the collaboration to life, saying, “Volleys conjure up so many great memories for me. Your school shoes came off and your Volleys came on, signifying good times, fun times.”
The design progresses our distinct heritage and retro feel, with the prominent 3-stripe detail on the signature Volley heel-tape and custom “Volley Up” logo.
THE UPSIDE X Volley shoes sit perfectly alongside an elevated tennis capsule launching at the same time.
Originally developed more than 80 years ago by Grand Slam pioneer Adrian Quist and worn by tennis royalty through decades of major tournaments, Volleys gained popularity for their extreme comfort and practical design.
“Tennis has a timeless appeal that definitely lends itself to reinterpretation, however there’s a sense that with a new, emerging rollcall of young, exciting and highly watchable tennis players, that tennis is exciting again and attracting an entirely new audience, bringing tennis into the lifestyle-centric-wear realm rather than just performance wear,” says Volley’s Content & Marketing Manager, Anna Geason.
Made in the original lightweight cotton canvas, reinforced toe cap for stability, as well as gum sole with herringbone pattern for traction and grip, the features are synonymous with a shoe that’s become a staple in Australian wardrobes and treasured fashion piece.
