WHAT: Pop-up store for Spring Court, a classic canvas sneaker designed in Paris
WHERE: 14 Hall Street, Bondi Beach until December 2015
Having become a fan of Spring Court shoes after a trip to France seven years ago, Kane Sarich decided they were so comfortable that the rest of Australia should be able to buy them locally. After launching successful retail shops in Potts Point and Newtown, Kane has now opened a third store on Hall Street, Bondi.
“Spring Court really is a shoe for everyone,” says Kane. “Australians love classic canvas sneakers – Spring Court offers that classic style and throws in a level of comfort like no other canvas shoe. We see quite a lot of Spring Courts on the street down in Bondi, so it was an easy decision (to open a store there).”
Spring Court is a family owned brand that was originally designed in Paris in 1936 as a tennis shoe. As with many heritage classics, they stood the test of time to become a must-have lifestyle fashion item for today. The brand is still under the direct control of the original family owners, who have recently appointed the creative director who works under Karl Largerfeld for Chanel to oversee Spring Court’s design direction.
When compared to other street shoes such as Converse and Vans, Kane says that Spring Court has a stronger fashion focus and is unquestionably the most comfortable.
“Given its sporting heritage, Spring Court has a super comfortable and supportive innersole that once you try, you stick with. It’s an everyday classic sneaker.”
Their range includes the G2 (low-cut canvas), B2 (mid-cut canvas) and M2 Glove (mid-cut leather). Prices range from $120 for a classic black low-cut canvas, to $250 for the men’s leather ‘silky red’.
Spring Court also sell shoes for children. You can browse the collection on their website spring court.com.au
