Leading British footwear brand Joseph Azagury unveils their limited edition shoe design to celebrate the Wimbledon tennis championship.
Being the home of both the tennis tournament and Joseph Azagury’s atelier, Wimbledon attracts more than 30,000 people to the British town every year.
When Joseph opened his new boutique in Wimbledon Village in June 2015, he did not realise the incredible impact the Wimbledon Championships had on the Village. It inspired him the following year to create a women’s shoe to celebrate the sporting event.
The Wimbledon shoe proved to be very popular, gaining approval from fans and tennis stars alike including Judy Murray. So, Joseph decided to create a limited edition shoe for the tennis championship each year.
This year’s style, named ‘Naomi’, is a raffia and leather slingback on a 10cm heel with tennis ball detail.
These limited edition designs are always made to order and hand made in London by Atelier Joseph Azagury.
I was inspired this year by the movement of the ball bouncing off the grass for our 2021 Special Edition shoe “Naomi “for the Wimbledon Championships.Joseph Azagury, founder
