While some sneaker fads come and go, Spring Court have taken a step in the right direction with their minimal and timeless style.
It’s no surprise that these iconic French shoes have a fan club that includes the eternally stylish Jude Law and John Lennon (who actually wore a pair on his wedding day).
The family business is based in Paris, where the classic tennis shoe was first invented by Georges Grimmeisen in 1936, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that the shoe had a makeover and transformed into the urban fashion staple that it is today.
It’s the old-school aesthetic combined with smart design features that makes Spring Court a favourite amongst men and women. One of the most impressive features are the four ventilation holes in the midsole and the comfortable and removable insole which gives added arch support - your feet (and back) will thank you for it.
The designs are uncomplicated with the G2 (low cut) and B2 (mid cut) which are available in canvas and leather, as well as the M2 (lambskin). The colour palette is chic and includes white, navy, black, grey and camel, plus additional transeasonal hues that easily go from day to night.
Spring Court is now available in the Gents department at Angove Street Collective.
