Veja Volley 70s-style tennis shoes


We have featured the Veja brand before, a Fairtrade company that produces really cool retro-styled footwear. The Veja Volley is the company's latest addition.

Available in two colourways, the Veja Volley is apparently inspired by a Brazilian trainer from the 1970s and has an organic cotton canvas upper and an Amazonian rubber sole, the style and detailing kept to a mimimum for something simple and stylish.

You can see the other colour option over the page, with both pairs selling for £70.

Classic World Cup football shirts of tournaments past at Toffs

Don’t know about you, but we much prefer the classic football shirts of days gone by to the super-thin, synthetic numbers of the modern-era. Just as well you can still buy classic World Cup shirts at Toffs.

Of course you can buy an England 1966 shirt, a Brazil 1970 (above), a Holland 1974, an Argentina 1986 or an Italia 1982 track top. Indeed, you can pick up every ‘big name’ team from just about every eras. But you can also pick up some of the more niche shirts of past and current World Cup participants too – like the USA 1950 shirt, also pictured above.

Or to be really niche, check out a 1960s Japan football shirt over the page, as well as the shirt worn by Australia in their first World Cup in 1975. Most prices are around the £34.99 mark, but start at £19.99. Check out the full range at the site.
