THE “ALL-STUD “ORIGINAL WULFRUN CREEPER

THE “ALL-STUD “ORIGINAL WULFRUN CREEPER

With over 500 studs to each pair the All Stud Wulfrun is armoured footwear for subculture.

You can trace back the combination of metal and hide to armour worn by the Romans, Celts, or Samurais. Metal studs were a practical means to hold together panels of reinforced leather. It was not until the Middle Ages that their use moved from the practical to the aesthetic, when they were adopted on armour to appear more menacing to the enemy. Their usage in any context outside of war is a modern one. The stud’s appearance in subcultural circles as fashion adornments came as suddenly as the appearance of youth groups themselves.
