Working Class Heroes was set up in 2006 with a mission to sell select men's street wear from around the globe to the good people of Ulverston, Cumbria. We still hold this close to our hearts but now aim to reach slightly further a field with our website.

We are not a massive corporate site. We are not owned by a group of executive directors that have little contact with customers. We order stock, photograph it, pack it and then dispatch it. We are here to deal with your enquiries, feedback and provide you with a personal service ensuring that you get the products you want on time every time.

If you call the shop you will speak to Tom, Rob, Adam or Edd. Let us know what you think, because we care!

More from the ACG range with a bright and head turning mix of colours and materials is the Alder Mid Shoes…Boots?

I’m looking at them as more of a street wear and lifestyle modelled pair of hiking/all purpose outdoor shoes. Lashings of tech folded in with some Nike swoosh style ensure this shoe has what it takes to live up the the All Conditions Gear logo.
This department of Nike is clearly all about the outdoors and with the help of mountaineers and athletes they are able to develop an tweak the products to performance perfection.

What stands out for me is the sole of the shoe that definitely has that high performance and technology based aesthetic.

The trailframe sole insert provides a solid platform for your feet yet with the phylon midsole is a light and soft compound that offers comfort which is topped of with Nike Air technology.
A thick padded and breathable mesh tongue keep things hunky dorey there and a mixture of suede with perforations and synthetic materials create a modern look with functionality.
Raised heel and toe tread is a clear indication that these bad boys are made to walk so don’t be afraid of the outside and get a pair of these dirty.
