Volley Shoes

In 1939 - Australia was first introduced to two things:

1) Sliced Bread
2) Volley Sneakers

Worn by young Aussie surfer and skaters across the continent, Volley's are the summer hemisphere's answer to Vans and Chucks. In late 2012, these shoes got revamped and introduced to the US market as a comfortable alternative to the 'basic' sneaker. There are a few Volley accounts in the US currently, but I think The Conveyor at Fred Segal in Santa Monica has the best selection. Check out pics from the launch here, and pics of the creation of the mural right in the middle of the Conveyor after the jump. At a price point of $40 here in the US - they are definitely worth a shot.
