Whilst the upper classes dress down to go out, the working class dress up.

Dating back to the second half of the 19th century, and ever since, sub-cultures have been created and driven almost exclusively by those in the working class communities. Starting with the Scuttlers of Manchester in the 1870's and their monotony towards life in the slums, advancing through to the Teddy Boys, Mods and Rockers era of the 50's, through to the Punk and Skin scenes, Ska, Reggae, the 80's and 90's skate scene, right up to today's contemporary minimalism. They were all the brainchild of those fighting for an identity - an identity that correlates conclusively with fashion - so it makes sense to call these people heroes.

With this premise as his inspiration, Working Class Heroes was founded in 2006 by Thomas Bowden. The initial intent was to sell a range of skate and street clothing from all around the globe to the good people of Ulverston, Cumbria, from his tiny shop in a shady looking alleyway. Since 2006 the company has moved to a bigger, better, less creepy location, sweeping up new brands, stories and people along the way.

Our ranges of footwear, clothing and homeware is comprised of a brand mix that appeals to us. Not one that follows a particular genre or alignment, but one that we feel goes together, blurring the lines between distinctions and classifications in order to create something beautiful.

Asics Gel Lyte III Shoes 

A company loved around the world for sportswear and fashion alike, a reason for Asics' success is that they find classic models that work, and year after year they experiment and adapt to create new lines of already adored shoes. Here we have this process in the textile-flesh. The Gel Lyte III is a killer every single year and now it's been given a bit more of a tough construction for long-lasting protection. 

The general sillhouette is the same in the placement of the panels and stitching, as well as the split tongue and rubber heel cap. Where the new craftmanship comes in is the materials. The uppers use the standard suece on the toe and side, and the iconic side stripes are still made of leather, however now the lower panels and stretch around the shoe are made of a powerful and durable canvas. The lining is made of a lightweight and cushioning mesh which meets the tongue and heel which are now made of a ripstop material for increased protection.

As per the usual, the shoe sits upon a Gel Lyte unit. This rubbery midsole provides incredible shock-absorption and support, with a grippy rubber tread to keep you on your feet. Perfect innovation from Asics.

  • Suede and canvas uppers 
  • Ripstop split tongue and heel 
  • Supportive rubber heel cap 
  • Gel Lyte cushioning midsole unit 
  • Leather side stripes

    First, don't measure your feet in the morning; feet often swell during the day due to heat and activity. For the best fit, measure your feet at the end of the day.

    To measure your shoe size follow these instructions:

    1Heel - Toe Length


    Place a piece of paper on the floor with one end against a wall. Stand on the piece of paper with your heel against the wall. Mark the piece of paper where your toes end with a pencil. Measure from the end of the piece of paper to the mark you created with your pencil and compare the measurement to our sizing chart.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
