    by · July 01, 2014


    It was 1934 when Fred Perry took home the first of his three Wimbledon titles. Eighty years later and Wimbledon currently in full swing, the brand that bears the Laurel Wreath is reissuing its blank canvas footwear collection.
    Allowing five global independents—Bodega, Hanon, Oi Polloi, Foot Patrol, and Firmament—the privilege of customizing its own edition of the archival shoe, each bears a distinctive colorway and material combo ranging from white canvas to yellow suede, while the Fred Perry x Bodega version in a brown suede is featured above.
    Each shoe will come with a concise biography of Fred Perry, the man and the brand, a limited edition reissue box and dust bag, and a set of four Made in England tennis balls in a reissued tube from the only tennis ball manufacturer in the UK. Watch the short below, and shop Fred Perry HERE.
