J. Crew will be launching a follow-up fall collaboration with British heritage sportswear brand Gola Classics.
The collection will consist of four women’s footwear styles. The launches are being done in two parts. The first released today. The second series is set to be delivered in early October. They will be sold in J. Crew stores and online.
The collection consists of the shoe brand’s iconic styles in exclusive colors, polka dots and metallics. These styles hint at J. Crew’s fall collection.
According to a 2018 Footwear News report, “The Mark Cox trainer, part of the brand’s repertoire since the 1970s, has been re-envisioned in rose gold, followed by a version in navy for October delivery. Another Gola classic, the Coaster, is available now in a high-top polka dot–print version, to be followed in October by a version in off-white with metallic gold, rose and red splashes.”
The Mark Cox trainer is priced at $65, the Coaster High at $68. Both will be available in US sizes 6 to 10.
According to a 2018 Footwear News report, “The collection marks the next generation in Gola’s collaborations with partners, which have included Millerain, Engineered Garments, Grahame Fowler Original, Slightly Alabama and Liberty London.”

The Gola brand was born of humble beginnings in a small factory in England in 1905.
Since then the brand has experienced a rollercoaster ride, surviving two World Wars and various other trials and tribulations to blossom in the 1960s and 70s as the pre-eminent sportswear brand.
Today Gola keeps true to its roots and has become one of the most enduring and endearing British sportswear and fashion brands in the market.
It’s fair to say that Gola has stood the test of time and made its mark on the fashion world. Today Gola creatively incorporates its unprecedented British heritage into its flagship designs, by combining styles from yesteryear with today’s most sought-after trends, according to the brand’s website.
