Since 1959, ellesse has been defined by a unique spirit and style.
It began when an Italian tailor, Leonardo Servadio, fused a passion for ski and tennis with a flair for couture. Over the past five decades, ellesse has established itself as a brand that creates exclusive sportwear, tailored to precision with genuine Italian flair. Inspired by the 1987 footwear archive, the ellesse ’87 pack takes inspiration from some of the brand’s most refined footwear silhouettes. Made in Portugal, the collection has been refreshed with a modern fit and premium materials. Perfectly fusing on-court inspiration with off-court style, the ‘87 pack leaves a modern footprint on the heritage footwear scene.
In addition to premium suede and nylon materials sourced from Portugal, high quality nappa leather uppers and linings provide a snug and flexible fit, ideal for maximum comfort. The original ellesse logo found on the woven tongue label has been aligned with the new brand strategy.
Story-telling is also enhanced with the ‘87 graphic on the reverse of the label. The “Semi Palla” moulded heel logo resonates with the original 1980’s ellesse consumer, at a high point in the brands history. The overall shape of the LS747, Otranto and Corfu styles have been updated for a more relevant look and feel, taking heritage elements from 1987 into 2016 with a modern twist.
