I will periodically bring you my personal take on why we at http://www.scootssuitsandboots.com stock certain brands, starting with the Ikon Original range of shoes.
Ikon Original Range
We love the Ikon Original range of footwear. Once again we have an independent and British owned company, selling traditional British sub-culture fashion.
The company was founded as recently as 1997 at a time when the Britpop boom had re-awakened, yet again, interest in Sixties and Seventies culture.
Their collections of retro inspired footwear steadily gained a following within the scooterist and mod world, this was really brought to the fore in 2006 when they collaborated with the Kaiser Chiefs to create The Employment vespa which was featured on the front page of Scootering magazine.
The range now consists of loafers, bowling shoes, corded shoes, numerous takes on the classic desert boot and some very stylish trainers, ideal for the coming Summer months.
The thing I like most about the range is that it allows us to sell classic British footwear, sometimes with a modern twist, often quirky, but best of all at a reasonable price.
