Online PR News – 15-February-2010 – – Durham, United Kingdom (February 11, 2010) - Scorpio Shoes, a designer footwear store which has been voted best independent shoe store in the North of England by The Guardian, are celebrating their fiftieth anniversary in trading designer footwear.
Scorpio Shoes started trading very early on in 1960 and were around to see the fashions adopted by skinhead groups during that era. Over time, they have also followed fashions and footwear trends embraced by other groups including the punk movement, the mods, Goths, Britpop pack and, more recently, the indie scene.
Scorpio Shoes attribute their longevity and cult status to their ability to move with the times and offer shoes and designer footwear to secular trends, helping to not only follow the scene but set it, offering discounts and the best deals on men's and women's footwear.
"Thanks to our ability to change with the times and give our customer's what they want, our footwear has been adopted by every generation as a way to express themselves and their individuality," says Steve Tregoning of Scorpio Shoes. "Being a few months older, we've also been there alongside Dr Martens for many years, a brand with which - to our customers - we are now synonymous. We would like to thank our return customers and fans who regularly shop with us who have helped keep us in business for so long, and are looking forward to seeing what the next generation of designer footwear will provide."
