Gola celebrated its 100th birthday in 2005. No-one really knows for sure how the brand got its name but legend has it that it's an anagram of the word "Goal". Of English origin, the brand sponsored major sports teams and personalities of the 70s, including the Liverpool and Manchester United football teams, Tommy Smith, Trevor Brooking, Peter Shilton, Mark Cox, Stan Bowles and many more besides. Today the Gola brand remains a benchmark in the world of street footwear. The unbeatable comfort of Gola shoes has become inextricably entwined with the bold, creative designs marketed in a range of fabulous colours.
