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!

Independent skateboard hardware

Independent Truck company has been in the skate game for longer then I have been in the game! Started in 1978, it's creation was in response to the poor quality of skate trucks on the market at the time. One of the key features of the new truck was that you could adjust the tension making them skate loser or tighter. Sounds crazy now that this could not be done but most trucks at the time did not provide this function.

The cross logo used by Independent comes from an image the founders saw in Time Magazine of the pope wearing the symbol that looks like the cross logo. They ripped it off fair and square! 

Independent still produces some of the best, cleanest and most effective skateboard trucks that can be bought today. They have subsequently taken their truck building skills and applied it to bearings, bolts and all forms of skate hardware.
