The brand is known for being the world’s first Sneaker brand and inventing the “World’s First Basketball Sneakers”.
The town of Colchester was a mere 50 miles from Springfield, Massachusetts
where basketball was invented in December 1891 by Dr. James Naismith.
Given his interest in sport, it is believed that Irving Watkinson was a basketball player early in the life of the sport.
Whatever his link with the sport and Dr. Naismith, it is considered that Irving Watkinson designed a shoe specifically for use playing basketball.
A surviving pair of basketball shoes was discovered in December 2004 at an estate sale in Vista, California.
The design of these basketball shoes is the classic American image of a sneaker and the essence of Irving Watkinson’s design
can be seen in the styles and brands which followed through the years.
Based on the long history and tradition as a classic sneakers brand,
Wing’s created a vintage casual sneakers line and a walk heritage line inspired by a modern emotion and a classic life styles.
