Other Interesting Points - The Gola brand name was first registered on 22 May 1905 by Joseph Leeson a shoe maker from Leicestershire, England. In the 1930s the Gola Brand name was to be purchased by the Botterill Family. During the 1940s Gola produced boots for the British Armed Forces, after the end of the Second World War and rationing was to be phased out Gola would return once again to large scale production. One of Gola's most memorable points in their history was to happen in 1968 when they introduced their Iconic Gola Harrier Trainer soon after in 1975 they developed the Gola Bag which was to be the start of their transition from sports clothing manufacturer to fashion wear, it was also to be the start of an international craze in sports bags which still remains today as popular as it was back in the 1970s with many companies recently producing 'Retro' styled bags for today's consumer.
