Established in East London by Simon See and Roger Pereira, the brand prides itself in its roots and its rich heritage. With a personal connection to the old Stepney Workers Sports Club – ‘an anti-fascist, anti-war club born in the 1920s’, the brand encompasses the values and ethos of the past club.

The iconic handshake logo is also inspired by their heritage, epitomising their ethos: ‘freedom of thought. Freedom of sport’. The logo and motto represent the values, liberal thinking and unity associated with these groups.

Their freethinking comes across in their footwear designs, using a variety of fabrics including pony hair and cotton canvas, demonstrates a creative flare. The design of their classic Dellow sneaker strikes the perfect balance between heritage and casual athleisure styling.

In creating their staples, the brand turns to 70s, 80s, and 90s sub-culture for inspiration. In their construction they use classic techniques including a fully vulcanised sneaker inspired by the 50s and 60s.

Stepney Workers Club celebrates bygone construction methods but adds a modern flare using contemporary techniques. They use localised manufacturing methods and sustainable resourcing.
