Whether it was tennis, running or aerobic shoes the brand excelled amongst running and sports magazines with the Medalist cementing itself as one of the best shoes on the market.
The brand has been reintroduced in SS20 with a reintroduction of its iconic Marathon model. It's unmistakable '80s in its design with a solid feel and great craftsmanship throughout. Stuarts London is one of the only UK stockists for this shoe and carries a variety of different styles.
