I Heart Creepers

I Heart Creepers

I’ve noticed recently the sudden growth in popularity for Brothel Creepers. I’ve had my eye on them for a few years now, as an absolute lover of anything of the Mod style. Every year I see a pair of Underground Creepers make it into the sale, but for some reason I’ve never purchased a pair. I think the time has come, to add a pair of Creepers to my wardrobe.

Counter cultures throughout fashion history who have been noted as adopting the Creeper as part of their style, are the counter cultures that I am constantly inspired in terms of styling myself, the music that I listen to and the films that I watch.

In the 1950’s, it was the Teddy Boys adopted the Creeper, along with their drainpipe trousers, drape jackets, their unmistakable greased back quiff hairstyle. In the 1960’s, it was the Mods & Rockers and in the 1970’s, it was the Punks. It is the revival of the Rockabilly and Mod style in recent seasons that has seen the next generation of fashion rebels revive the Creeper.

Unlike most trends that come and go, I believe that the Creeper is a shoe tailored for the individual, with a unique look that separates them from the rest.
