Check out the Black Brogue Mary Janes ! T.U.K./Creeper History Originally from Northampton, England, T.U.K. has moved to the sandy shores of San Diego, CA since 1990. English footwear since the 1890s, brought the distinctly British aspects of the shoe and found the greatest inspiration and influence in the ever growing Southern California punk rock scene. The main result was: a one-of-a-kind distinctive brand of footwear that fosters punk roots across the entire world. T.U.K.’s first retail store was opened in 1991, selling their very own shoes in-house. Demand sudden began to grow, and soon T.U.K. was selling its products worldwide. T.U.K. fabricates a variety of footwear from women’s high heels to unisex sneakers, but the most popular design is, without a doubt, the creeper platform design. Made from crepe rubber during WWII, the thick creeper-sole helped soldiers in the deserts of North African across the hot and sandy terrain. John Ayto claims to have labeled the name ‘brothel creeper’ during those wartime years. The Smithsonian Museum suggests that the crepe in the thick sole might have provided the creeper name towards the shoe. It can also possibly be associated with Ken Mackintosh’s dance tune which had great popularity in 1953 called “The Creep.” Like fashion does, it followed the foot steps of these soldiers and the thick soles began to catch on in England. In London, the decades following the war gave way to a kaleidoscopic cultural underground with subcultures exploding with a variety of styles during the time.Influenced by the Edwardian dressing manner of the Dandies, the Teddy Boy style grew along with the introduction of American rock n’ roll music. Teds wore even bulkier, draped jackets, and high-wasted trousers. They often wore their collars loose and often styled up their outfits with very flamboyant detailing like Bolo Ties and velvet trim. The creeper shoe was also well worn by the Ton-Up boys from the 1950s and later on by the rockers of the ’60s, who enjoyed wearing them as an alternative shoe when they weren’t riding their motorbikes. Greased hair was the hair style of preference. And if you looked down and your feet at any moment, you’d be sure to see the Teds boasting their fine, slickly polished oxfords, or the crepe-soled classic, platformed creepers. And as we know, through the ‘60s and ‘70s was the rise of the Rockers and the Mods, who took hold their liking in classic Teddy Boy-centric garb ebbed and flowed, and it wasn’t until the great rise of punk around the mid ‘70s when the creeper was once again seen on the feet of many, an uproar that surged well into the ‘80s, thrived in the ‘90s, and eventually exploded with the great expansion of the world-wide web. The creeper shoe has since then been adopted by subcultures like indie, ska, punk, new wavers, psychobilly, rockabilly, greasers and goth, Japanese Visual Kei, and was also worn by Bananarama, and the singer of Republica Saffron. Now more than ever before, outsider styles and subcultures hold the style inspired around the whole world, and with its historical background that is deeply woven in the English style and at the West Coast punk way of living, T.U.K. is able to perfectly represent and illustrate the culture clash/expansion of the past few decades.

Smallwood explains that the concept was to ask "who's the really evil one here? Who's manipulating who?" According to Riggs this was inspired by a Doctor Strange comic book "which had some big villain with Doctor Strange dangling on some strings like a puppet, it was something I read as a child back in the 1960s I think", while the images of hell were "taken from my knowledge of medieval European Christian art which was full of such scenes."

Dr. Martens History Starting in 1901, the small company began in Wollaston, Northamptonshire in the English Midlands. They were at the location of the epicenter of the English shoe industry and for six decades the footwear earned a solid reputation as sturdy, durable work boots. In 1945, a 25-year-old soldier, while trying to heal from a broken foot, created a unique air-cushioned sole, opposed from traditional rough leather sole, to aid his recovery. Using a salvaged cobbler’s last and a needle, he made a prototype shoe and revealed it to an old university friend and mechanical engineer. Both then became great business partners by using disused military supplies and began producing their shoes with unique soles. By 1947 they began formal production and within a decade they had a great going business, despite mainly selling to older women. In 1959, they decided it was time to advertise their revolutionary footwear invention in overseas magazines. While he was scanning the pages of a shoe trade magazine, his eye was caught by the manufacture advertisement for their revolutionary air- cushioned sole. Several different licenses were acquired and a few characteristic changes were made, including an altered heel, a bulbous but simple upper, a distinctive yellow welt stitch, a two tone grooved sole edge and a unique sole pattern. The new boots were now branded as ‘Airwair’ and came distinctly with a black and yellow heel loop representing the brand name and the slogan “With Bouncing Soles” which was printed based on the manufacturer's own handwriting. With its name being created off the date they were first created, April 1st, 1960, the eight-eyed 1460 Dr. Martens boot had mad its first arrival. The decade in which the Dr. Martens boot was created, there was an eccentric wave of change, new ideas, cultural explosion and eventually social revolution. This radical era also witnessed flamboyant and often exotic fashions and styles, an odd period of time for the birth of such a functional work-boot. First worn by postmen and factory workers, Dr. Martens’ initial years of existence was very much that of a simple work-wear boot, selling solid quantities to Britain’s working classes. Then and incredible shift occurred. Without any insight as to why or how, Dr. Martens were suddenly picked up by early multi-cultural, ska-loving skinheads – who proudly championed British working class style. Shortly after, Pete Townshend of The Who became the first high profile individual to wear Dr. Martens as a symbol of his own working class pride and rebellious attitude. Doing so enabled both first generation skinheads and Townshend to alter the course of the brand’s history, which in turn changed the classic work-wear boot into a subcultural essential. Constant sales of smaller men’s size boots also induced Dr. Martens to create a street trend for girls, who would buy then customize with florals, the simple 8-hole boot. Meanwhile, US Hardcore musicians touring the UK began to take pairs of DM’s back to the west coast, thus starting American subculture’s adoption of the brand. Without music, Dr Martens would have remained a workwear boot. The music of tribes who wear Dr. Martens has become inseparable from the brand itself.

Dr. Martens History Starting in 1901, the small company began in Wollaston, Northamptonshire in the English Midlands. They were at the location of the epicenter of the English shoe industry and for six decades the footwear earned a solid reputation as sturdy, durable work boots. In 1945, a 25-year-old soldier, while trying to heal from a broken foot, created a very unique air-cushioned sole, opposed from traditional rough leather sole invention, to aid his recovery. Using a salvaged cobbler’s last and a needle, he then made a prototype shoe and revealed it to an old university friend and mechanical engineer. Both then became great business partners by using disused military supplies and began producing their shoes with unique soles. By 1947 they began formal production and within a decade they had a great going business, despite mainly selling to older women.

Lower these TUK Black Suede Mondo Creeper with the Black Suede Low Sole Creeper ! T.U.K./Creeper History Originally from Northampton, England, T.U.K. has moved to the sandy shores of San Diego, CA since 1990. English footwear since the 1890s, brought the distinctly British aspects of the shoe and found the greatest inspiration and influence in the ever growing Southern California punk rock scene. The main result was: a one-of-a-kind distinctive brand of footwear that fosters punk roots across the entire world. T.U.K.’s first retail store was opened in 1991, selling their very own shoes in-house. Demand sudden began to grow, and soon T.U.K. was selling its products worldwide. T.U.K. fabricates a variety of footwear from women’s high heels to unisex sneakers, but the most popular design is, without a doubt, the creeper platform design. Made from crepe rubber during WWII, the thick creeper-sole helped soldiers in the deserts of North African across the hot and sandy terrain. John Ayto claims to have labeled the name ‘brothel creeper’ during those wartime years. The Smithsonian Museum suggests that the crepe in the thick sole might have provided the creeper name towards the shoe. It can also possibly be associated with Ken Mackintosh’s dance tune which had great popularity in 1953 called “The Creep.” Like fashion does, it followed the foot steps of these soldiers and the thick soles began to catch on in England. In London, the decades following the war gave way to a kaleidoscopic cultural underground with subcultures exploding with a variety of styles during the time.Influenced by the Edwardian dressing manner of the Dandies, the Teddy Boy style grew and became novel style along with the introduction of American rock n’ roll music. The creeper shoe was also well worn by the Ton-Up boys from the 1950s and later on by the rockers of the ’60s, who enjoyed wearing them as an alternative shoe when they weren’t riding their motorbikes. Greased hair was the hair style of preference. And if you looked down and your feet at any moment, you’d be sure to see the Teds boasting their fine, slickly polished oxfords, or the crepe-soled classic, platformed creepers. And as we know, through the ‘60s and ‘70s was the rise of the Rockers and the Mods, who took hold their liking in classic Teddy Boy-centric garb ebbed and flowed, and it wasn’t until the great rise of punk around the mid ‘70s when the creeper was once again seen on the feet of many, an uproar that surged well into the ‘80s, thrived in the ‘90s, and eventually exploded with the great expansion of the world-wide web. The creeper shoe has since then been adopted by subcultures like indie, ska, punk, new wavers, psychobilly, rockabilly, greasers and goth, Japanese Visual Kei, and was also worn by Bananarama, and the singer of Republica Saffron. Now more than ever before, outsider styles and subcultures hold the style inspired around the whole world, and with its historical background that is deeply woven in the English style and at the West Coast punk way of living, T.U.K. is able to perfectly represent and illustrate the culture clash/expansion of the past few decades.

The decade in which the Dr. Martens boot was created, there was an eccentric wave of change, new ideas, cultural explosion and eventually social revolution. This radical era also witnessed flamboyant and often exotic fashions and styles, an odd period of time for the birth of such a functional work-boot. First worn by postmen and factory workers, Dr. Martens’ initial years of existence was very much that of a simple work-wear boot, selling solid quantities to Britain’s working classes. Then and incredible shift occurred. Without any insight as to why or how, Dr. Martens were suddenly picked up by early multi-cultural, ska-loving skinheads – who proudly championed British working class style. Shortly after, Pete Townshend of The Who became the first high profile individual to wear Dr. Martens as a symbol of his own working class pride and rebellious attitude. Doing so enabled both first generation skinheads and Townshend to alter the course of the brand’s history, which in turn changed the classic work-wear boot into a subcultural essential. While Britain was constantly pursed by anti-government riots and social resentment, youth culture managed to rise up from the streets with yet more highly visual and individual tribes such as psychobilly, grebo and scooter boys. Constant sales of smaller men’s size boots also induced Dr. Martens to create a street trend for girls, who would buy then customize with florals, the simple 8-hole boot. Meanwhile, US Hardcore musicians touring the UK began to take pairs of DM’s back to the west coast, thus starting American subculture’s adoption of the brand.

T.U.K./Creeper History Originally from Northampton, England, T.U.K. has moved to the sandy shores of San Diego, CA since 1990. English footwear since the 1890s, brought the distinctly British aspects of the shoe and found the greatest inspiration and influence in the ever growing Southern California punk rock scene. The main result was: a one-of-a-kind distinctive brand of footwear that fosters punk roots across the entire world. T.U.K.’s first retail store was opened in 1991, selling their very own shoes in-house. Demand sudden began to grow, and soon T.U.K. was selling its products worldwide. T.U.K. fabricates a variety of footwear from women’s high heels to unisex sneakers, but the most popular design is, without a doubt, the creeper platform design. Made from crepe rubber during WWII, the thick creeper-sole helped soldiers in the deserts of North African across the hot and sandy terrain. John Ayto claims to have labeled the name ‘brothel creeper’ during those wartime years. The Smithsonian Museum suggests that the crepe in the thick sole might have provided the creeper name towards the shoe. It can also possibly be associated with Ken Mackintosh’s dance tune which had great popularity in 1953 called “The Creep.” Like fashion does, it followed the foot steps of these soldiers and the thick soles began to catch on in England. In London, the decades following the war gave way to a kaleidoscopic cultural underground with subcultures exploding with a variety of styles during the time.Influenced by the Edwardian dressing manner of the Dandies, the Teddy Boy style grew along with the introduction of American rock n’ roll music. Teds wore even bulkier, draped jackets, and high-wasted trousers. They often wore their collars loose and often styled up their outfits with very flamboyant detailing like Bolo Ties and velvet trim. The creeper shoe was also well worn by the Ton-Up boys from the 1950s and later on by the rockers of the ’60s, who enjoyed wearing them as an alternative shoe when they weren’t riding their motorbikes. Greased hair was the hair style of preference. And if you looked down and your feet at any moment, you’d be sure to see the Teds boasting their fine, slickly polished oxfords, or the crepe-soled classic, platformed creepers. And as we know, through the ‘60s and ‘70s was the rise of the Rockers and the Mods, who took hold their liking in classic Teddy Boy-centric garb ebbed and flowed, and it wasn’t until the great rise of punk around the mid ‘70s when the creeper was once again seen on the feet of many, an uproar that surged well into the ‘80s, thrived in the ‘90s, and eventually exploded with the great expansion of the world-wide web. The creeper shoe has since then been adopted by subcultures like indie, ska, punk, new wavers, psychobilly, rockabilly, greasers and goth, Japanese Visual Kei, and was also worn by Bananarama, and the singer of Republica Saffron. Now more than ever before, outsider styles and subcultures hold the style inspired around the whole world, and with its historical background that is deeply woven in the English style and at the West Coast punk way of living, T.U.K. is able to perfectly represent and illustrate the culture clash/expansion of the past few decades.
