SPRING COURT

Spring Court. Georges Grimmeisen created an exceptional tennis shoe with a canvas upper and a vulcanised sole unit in 1936. Later in 1952 he added the four characteristic ventilation holes in the sole side. A design classic which has remained unchanged to this day.

Original Spring Court tennis pair from the 1950’s with its box. Not that much different than what we see today. Note the 3 hole design (after the jump) as opposed to the current 4 hole.

John Lennon was a big fan. He wore a pair of white Spring Court during Abbey Road album cover photo shooting.
