Gola Footwear Review

I firmly believe that every person should own many pairs of shoes.  Variety is the spice of life as they say.  My boyfriend doesn't share my philosophy of wanting multiple pairs of shoes.  He is okay with just having a few.  I'm always trying to persuade him to buy another pair because I think it's important.  When I was introduced to Gola Footwear, I knew he would like these.


Gola is a classic British shoe brand that has been around since 1905. The shoes are unique and unlike what everyone else is wearing today.  Gola offers sneakers for men, women, and children.  Ladies flats and messenger bags are also available.  The sneakers are top notch quality and built to last. They come in fun and interesting color patterns like yellow and blue, red and navy, silver and white, etc.  Pick your favorite color combination and let your personality shine through!

When I was told I could review a pair of sneakers, I instantly knew I wanted to select a pair for my boyfriend.  I am not a big wearer of sneakers, except to the gym.  I browsed the site and admired all of the shoes.  Not only do they have different color combinations, but some shoes have Union Jacks on them since Gola is a British brand. That was interesting to see. I knew that my boyfriend wouldn't like anything too crazy for his taste so I settled on something nice and simple. I chose the Chase navy and red sneaker.


I really liked these as soon as I saw them.  The navy and red are very attractive together.  This shoe is an authentic running shoe that is inspired by an original 1969 Gola track and field model.  I thought that was really cool.  The style of the shoe is not like your everyday typical sneaker, I think that was why I instantly gravitated towards them.  The suede is very soft and supple.  You have to be careful though with when you wear these.  I definitely wouldn't recommend wearing them in the rain because the rain could ruin the suede.  The navy is a beautiful dark hue, and the red is very vibrant and alive.  There are nice grippers on the bottom of the shoe to provide balance and stability. 

My boyfriend has already worn these many times since receiving them.  He had no problem initially putting them on and tying them.  He says the shoes are extremely comfortable to wear and he has really enjoyed wearing them. They seem very durable and I'm sure will last for some time to come.  The red and navy pair perfectly with jeans for a relaxed, casual look.  The best part is that you can wear these year round.  These have quickly become my boyfriend's new favorite pair of shoes! He has been wearing them every chance he gets.  I owe it all to you, Gola.

*DISCLOSURE* I received a complimentary pair of shoes in exchange for this review.  All thoughts and opinions are strictly mine and not based on anything else.
