This heritage style gets Hollywood approval in "Challengers."

Gola Classics Men’s Badminton Plimsoll Sneaker

 

Trend predictors are always on the lookout for the next It sneaker, and the Adidas Samba has had its reign for a few seasons now. The Badminton Plimsoll from Gola Classics offers similar nostalgia (the style is adapted from the Gola’s 1970s namesake original) with a low-profile silhouette and elevated canvas upper. A sleek sneaker with tennis credibility, the shoe made its box-office debut in this summer’s Challengers¬†movie. Patrick Zweig himself sports a pair in his introductory scene.

Available for men and women, the classic plimsoll is available in 11 colorways with a canvas or mesh upper. New in 2024, the brand reintroduced a gum-sole option, as well.
