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
Home to the original gothic novelists Horace Walpole, Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker and later gothic rock spawning from punk in the late 1970s, the UK inevitably gave rise to a number of iconic Gothcentric venues . Here are our top 8 most iconic goth clubs and venues , with their influence on the subculture profound.
As punk imploded under the weight of its own anger and grit, the ‘passionate bright young things’ (See Aladdin Sane) of the UK needed a new and luminescent clan to counter the ennui of the three-day week and mounting youth unemployment. In swaggers the New Romantic, clad in a Regency Shirt, pirate boots with a face painted silver and hair defying any gravitational elements. Half-Beau Brummell Dandy and half-futuristic extra-terrestrial (more on the Starman later) New Romanticism mounted aesthetic exaggeration on the preceding subcultures of post-war Britain.
The Kilpatrick sisters are as enchantingly ethereal as their namesake sprite suggests, yet an ethos of hard graft lies beneath their imagery of rippling projections and flowing locks. Ever resourceful and ever inventive, the duo behind Waterbaby have been experimenting with electronic music and Fassbinder-inspired film since their 2016 self-released debut album ‘Pink Noise.’ From curating an audio-visual night to directing music videos for the likes of Deep Tan and Martha Skye Murphy, we caught up with Waterbaby about their various guises (including appearing as holograms) and their new music: “the hard drive is about to burst.”
