Original Wulfrun Creeper – Black Leather & Royal Stewart Tartan
The Original Wulfrun Creeper is constructed on a walled round-toe last, the upper design distinguished by the D-ring lace feature and interwoven apron.
Originated in Scotland, tartan was the fabric worn by crofters working the land. In the 19th century Tartan was romanticised by the elite and the establishment with each Tartan design representing a clan (family line). In true style Tartan was re-appropriated by the Punk movement in the second half of the 70’s. The wrestling of ownership of Tartan is ongoing. This Tartan is from the Royal Stewart clan.
Ever true to our roots this product uses Authentic Tartan that is woven in Britain.
HEEL – 3.5cm / TOE – 2.2cm

The original Underground Creeper, Wulfrun was first produced in the 1980’s for our store in Manchester and was one of the styles to be included in our inaugural seasonal collection in 1987. One of the most popular designs it is, like so many of our original designs, named after an iconic British live music venue. Wulfrun is a round toe Creeper that has three distinctive features:
– a ribbed sole edge
– an apron with three rows of interlacing
– two D-ring for lacing
Wulfrun is gender neutral and produced in single, double, triple and wedge sole options and a huge selection of materials and colours including the signature black suede version.
In our pursuit to proudly propagate Britain’s rebellious style heritage, we’ve turned up the dial on our responsibility. For nearly 40 years we’ve tapped into the riches and sounds of British sub + culture; it’s our obligation to give back in order to sustain it. Since our beginnings in the Post Punk landscape of Manchester, a city in industrial decline in the eighties, we have always strived to support manufacturing in the Midlands and the North. Throughout the decades, as different Subcultures waxed and waned, our Original Creepers, Steel Caps and Winklepickers were native to Northampton and Norwich; Leicester and Lancashire- shoemaking epicentres. Now we are bringing the beat of the Midlands and the North back to our soles with the intention to uphold Britain’s Subcultural hubs.
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, leaders of their field, to help them preserve generations of innovative artistry and ingenuity. In a world where fashion faces off with the environment, Made in the UK creates sustainability, avoids senseless overproduction and cuts carbon footprints. It produces Original products with a Punk spirit, traceable to its very roots. It supports local family owned manufacture. Made in the UK provides the fruitful economy for Britain’s creative underground to thrive.
