Dreske Running Shoe

Dreske was a running brand from Australia. The founder of the company was Helmut Dreske, a German cobbler who reputedly (I have read it but don’t recall the source) worked for both of the Dassler brothers at different times at both Puma and adidas.


The shoe pictured here had the same upper from my Junior High running shoes. This pair had spikes, while mine had a crepe rubber sole with a ridged tread, and the same full grain leather upper. I actually had two pairs, a racer and a training shoe, the first year white with red, the second year white with blue.
