Henley Royal Regatta 3rd - 7th July 2013

At Shoes International we would be all ready for this years Henley Regatta. We have our excellent boat shoes from Sebago, Timberland, Ecco and Mephisto all ready to wear and they are in the sale too!

If you are planning to go the weather is set to be as spectacular as the racing with temperatures set to reach 26°C (79°F) with no rain. Five days of intense competition on the water, with Olympian Champions joining in the action, you can be sure that you will seeing some of the best rowing action the world has to offer.

The Henley Regatta has a history spanning back to the early part of Queen Victoria's rule – 1839. Back then the event took place on one afternoon – but it's popularity has ensured a steady growth – even as recently as 1986 it expanded to its current duration of five days. Its long history has helped establish the event's unique characteristics – there are only two lanes on the course and events are still based on knockout draws. It takes a lot of skilled organisation to ensure all the races are completed – and you can be certain there is always something happening on the watercourse.

If we didn't have to come to work tomorrow, here are the deck shoes we would be wearing. If you do happen to go, please let us know how the day goes!
