It’s the light that gives it away. That low-sun, long-shadow haze that tells you you’re at the end of another season. That time of year when the late evenings throw fiery shades of orange and red into the sky, as if rewarding you for having made it this far. If nostalgia had a colour, this would surely be it. So, as we roll into high summer, The Green Soccer Journal has teamed up with Fred Perry, bastions of authenticity and true sub-culture pioneers, to create a special-edition trainer that evokes the memories of long, warm afternoons, punctuated only by a pure, unspoilt hour-and-a-half of watching the game we love.
