This summer’s hottest plimsolls and canvas shoes

Ever wondered why the plimsoll is called that? According to Nicholette Jones’ book The Plimsoll Sensation in the 1870s it got the name because the coloured horizontal band joining the upper to the sole resembled the Plimsoll line on a ship’s hull. So just like the Plimsoll line on a ship, if water got above the line of the rubber sole the wearer would get wet.

So now we’re officially in summer, we can safely get out our plimsolls! (and hopefully avoid trench foot following a British summer…)

So much cooler than trainers, here’s our top ten plimsolls to step out in this summer.
