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.

Mens Saucony Original Footwear

The Saucony manifesto is all about running. They strive to produce the best running shoes on the market, to make sure the wearer is using trainers that will help them perform their absolute best. Saucony believe every great day is a day were you have a run. I agree, really like a run, but I would like to add every great day includes a skate and a beer also.  

Saucony Creek in Pennsylvania is where it started way back in 1898 with a varying range of footwear. In the early 1900s they were the people to go and see if you needed carpet slippers or indeed ice skates or roller boots. In 1963 they had stepped up the game some what and the produced the boots that were worn on the first ever moon walk. 

In 1981 Saucony released their most recognized trainer the Jazz O, a running shoe classic that features heavily in todays Original collection. The Grid 9000 is a classic running shoe from over a decade after, first seeing the light of day in 1994 it was a running shoe ahead of its time. 

With running heritage and retro styling the Saucony Original range is a great trainer for the sneaker head looking for something way from the main stream with real footwear history.
