BRINGING IT CLOSER TO HOME
Sneaker's history and contribution to UK culture, and subcultures around the world, is unprecedented. Yet the knowledge, materials and construction of the shoes are produced 1000s of miles away. We believe in brining this closer to home. Intertwining this production; opening up new opportunities for creativity and expression by understanding our sneakers on a new level and helping you make your own.
