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
After having returned to releasing music with ‘Happy Place’, the touching anthem written about the passing of their dad, Glasgow’s Saint PHNX have just finished their tour with You Me at Six and have much in store for them. Being over a year and a half since the release of their debut album ‘DDMN’, we chatted to the Glaswegian brothers about signing to their new record label, being back on the road, and the plans for their new material. It is clear that brotherhood is something that has been a strong part of fueling your music, how and when did you both start to work together – has music been a big part of your lives and relationship since you were young?
With the first Underground Steel Caps dating back to the 1980s and their formal presentation as part of the Originals Collection in 1987, the boots have become a consistent product line within the brand. By reinterpreting what was a workingman boot, Underground helped bring these into fashion, with the manipulation of silhouettes, materials, and colours. The Steel Caps are a wardrobe staple due to the edge of a militaristic silhouette that was worn by both the punk, and grunge scene. With modern fashion taking many cues from previous subcultures, it is only natural that the steel cap has been picked up by many customers and personalities alike.
It’s been 19 months since Bristol-based sextet Damefrisor’s last release, and the world has indelibly shifted. Accordingly, as has their music. The unsettling atmosphere of earlier songs such as ‘And You Know’ and ‘Huile’ persists, yet their inherent characteristics of blurred and bleary shoegaze obscurity have been tapered; tightened. ‘Do You Think I’m Special’, released on Permanent Creeps, possesses an urgency unrivalled by the group’s previous recordings. Rapturous synth parts and wailing vocals interweave with full-throttle guitar lines; jaggedly distinguishable from preceding industrial soundscapes.
