Some e mails end up in my box from up and coming creeper wearers that are new to the game and need some more info about these shoes. Owning a few pairs of Underground Creepers myself I am a bit of an Underground patriot but thought it might be good to share the knowledge. I know my creeper stuff but for those of you that might want to join me on the higher plain of learning here is a helpful anatomy of the shoe. I get to see a few imitations around that are trying to slip onto unsuspecting feet ,so print out this handy anatomy and you will have a check list when you creeper for the first time ; )

Now here is something different and very limited availability. I borrowed a pair from our sales samples (sssshh ) and they are sort of cute. There are a few colour options and they just give another option on the creeper look. At the moment they are only available at the online store (and a pair in my office !)
There’s some new Underground styles in store at i.t in Hong Kong. I get to put together some lines about Underground and the places that stock them all around the globe, so it might be an idea to take a closer look at this store. Now ,my manager is a great fan of I.T and as the furthest place East I have been is East Anglia ,I only get to know about this fashion paradise from him and his assistant. “ Research, Research ” is the advise dispensed in my direction. Wow- I just did that ,and its the equivelant of asking a Foodie to research Fortnum’s. I am drooling over the brands that they carry – in fact I barely bring myself to repeat them all without my credit card coming up in a rash , but I better try- Comme , Gareth Pugh, Margiela, Bathing Ape, izzue ++++++++ – just go to www.ithk.com take a look , sit down ,and then take another look- this is it-the fashion centre of the universe. Research ???? right !!, best send me there to take a closer look if your are reading this chief !
In the meantime here are some of the Underground styles that they have in store.
The eagerly awaited Underground exclusives are up and running at ASOS from today. pop down to www.asos.com for a look at some of the exclusives including the Bowie boot in black and white leather along with some of the other classic Underground creepers including Wulfrun in a range of colours. I had a call from the guys in sales this morning and they reckon that these are going to be sold out pretty quick so grab your trolley and burn some rubber !!!.
