IN 1925 A.C.M. VAN AMELSVOORT, A SHOEMAKER’S SON FROM TILBURG, HAD A MOST WONDERFUL IDEA:
He Imagined people with anactive, hardworking life style could also appreciate quality and fine detail — all they needed was someone to show them how. Driven by the clarity of his vision, the young man, who was but 21 at the time, founded Goliath.
EQUIPPED WITH AN EYE FOR DESIGN, a passion for detail, a mastery of traditional skills and a deep understanding of the character of materials, van Amelsvoort began crafting shoes for professionals. The original Goliath clientele were footballers in the Dutch professional and amateur leagues. Later on, however, ice-skaters, cricketers, gent lemen and workers all slipped their feet into Goliath shoes.
BY THE 1940S, GOLIATH HAD ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS A MANUFACTURER OF WORLD CLASS SPORTING SHOES, which it continued to produce during the 50s and 60s.
IN 2006, GOLIATH AWOKE FROM A DEEP SLEEP AND TODAY, GOLIATH REPRESENTS HIGH QUALITY PREMIUM SPORTSWEAR. Every shoe we make remains true to our original vision and sporting heritage.
Tradition, quality, passion, craftsmanship and attention to detail all come together and make a piece of footwear into a Goliath.
