Underground being responsible with.....
Part of our commitment to sensible and sustainable manufacturing.
Because we recognise that our customers have a personal choice regarding the material that is used in our footwear. Also our Vegan friendly collection is designed to meet the requirements of Underground customers that have a preference for products that do not contain animal products.
Also we have selected a special non-animal material, Onmicro, that has the appearance and attributes of leather and will perform in the same way as leather. The collection includes many of our core styles, but it is also possible to order custom made products using Onmicro.
Our commitment to sensible manufacture is supported by our custom made service for Underground Creepers Shoes Boots. Authentic, British Subculture inspired footwear.
Our custom-made service also allows customers to select any of our original designs. Using the long-term relationship with our manufacturers to build up trust and a cooperative spirit this enables us to offer customers the option to select special colours or materials to produce one pair that is custom made for them. Also there is no mass over- production and waste.
In our pursuit to proudly propagate Britain’s rebellious style heritage, we’ve turned up the dial on our responsibility. Because for 40 years we’ve tapped into the riches and sounds of British subculture; it’s our responsibility to give back in order to sustain it.
The Made-in-the-UK collection champions this country’s quality craftspeople and their long legacy of proven manufacturing. Made-in-the-UK sees us work with skilled experts and leaders of their field and also to help them preserve generations of innovative artistry and ingenuity.

MUSIC AND SUBCULTURE
Fake Turins are no mere band with a formulaic set-up. Spanning at least twelve members, this tribe of “Nomadic Disco Psychedelia” is better chronicled as a colossal, creative community. Their audio-visual romps of distortion (see lockdown project ‘Fake TV’) have set the group on a course of high-concept aesthetics and ambitions for exhibition spaces, whilst their upcoming EP ‘Time Flowers Now’ is testament to how a dozen aptitudes can collide in a hallucinatory, musical kaleidoscope. New single ‘Talking Prophets’ is Fake Turins’ choppiest venture yet; we caught up with frontman and writer Dominic Rose about the familial genesis of their darkest release to date.
"I remember when I was a kid, I loved going through the family photo albums and I have vivid memories of looking through filmstrips and opening envelopes containing the photographs just developed. It seemed to be something so ordinary for everyone around me, but it was fascinating for a kid like me.When I was a teen, around 15 or so I needed an escape route and I found photography provided that for me. I was creating without being aware of technicalities, rules or composition but I realised I had an eye for it, and it captivated me enough to start diving into the wonderful world of art."
Bootlickers by name, Bootlickers by nature: Underground’s new radio show is all about applauding and advocating creativity; exciting, emerging and experimental. Our third bootlicking guests are the sublime three-piece band, Drug Store Romeos. Now based in London, this trio weave an escapist kaleidoscope of songs, citing their small-town origins in Fleet as a quiet catalyst for creativity; proving that you don’t have to shout in order to be heard. Listen to the third instalment of Bootlickers HERE to hear from the group about their much-anticipated debut album and their soundscape selections for the show.
