Bring Treads Shoes Back

I have bought back those treads shoes that all kids wore in the 1970’s. Remember them? The one’s with the recycled car rubber tyre soles? Whether you’re a baby boomer looking to reminisce or a current day teenager, you should experience the glamour and comfort of wearing treds on your feet. They are not just for Surfy’s today.

Hand Made Treads Shoes Melbourne.

The 1970’s And My Treads Shoes

The 1970’s were the best years of my life. Being a teenager then who loved surfing down the back beaches of the Mornington Peninsula, I spent many a day down there surfing, partying and dating. Of course every memory I have of this time I was always with my trusty pair of treads.

I loved my treads.

I had three pair to be honest. Of them my chocolate brown pair were my favourites. I also had a blue/grey pair and a grey and pink pair.

8 years ago I wanted to buy a pair of treads but could not find anyone making treads so I turned the spare room at home into an area to make them and I have been making treads shoes here in Melbourne ever since.

I get dozens of emails per month asking me to make them a pair, some even purchase a couple of pairs of treads to give to their children so they can experience the comfort and pleasure of wearing them.

My hand made treads are exactly like the originals, see pictures of treads here, and once you order a pair, you will see the attention to detail I put into every pair.

If you would like to purchase a pair why not give me a call on 0404 833 531

I make all sizes and any combination you like.

Now you can buy hand made treads shoes and be living in the 70’s again.
