Joining the landscape back in 2008, our Middlesbrough store sits just outside of the main shopping strip of the town centre.

Famed for its discovery of ironstone back in 1850, iron and steel have been the major trading assets for the town over the past century and a half, and the industrial feel is properly visible along the riverside area.

Skyline highlights of the town include Anish Kapoor’s ‘Temenos’ and Claes Oldenburg’s ‘Bottle of Notes’ sculptural works, the grade II listed Transporter Bridge, and of course the much loved Riverside Stadium, home of The Boro.

We took a trip up to our Middlesbrough store and met some of the staff to find out their favourite things about the town, and try a Chicken Parmo for ourselves…

What are some of your favourite things about Middlesbrough? It’s weirdly underrated. It’s hard to put your finger on it. It’s also got some really good places for food. Oh, and the Parmo’s around here are spot on! Are there any good places to get something to eat in the local area? There are a few right next to the shop, Manjaros does the best Parmo going. Then there’s Purple Pig and Sticky Fingers down the road which is pretty chilled for food and drinks. What’s been in your footwear rotation recently? The size? Exclusive Vans Old Skool were probably my favourite release of the year, I tend to live in them. Also Converse Chuck 70’s or Clarks Wallabee’s if I fancy a change. What are some of your all time favourite shoes? Vans Old Skool are absolute classic and go with pretty much anything. If you could sum up Middlesbrough in one word, what would it be? Different. What do you do for fun outside of work? Any hidden talents we should know about? I’m not from around here, I live in Sunderland. It’s pretty nice to just chill when I’m not working. I still need to check out a night out in Boro though. selected_by_middlesbrough_08 Chris' Selection 1.Vans Old Skool CA size? Exclusive - Shop Now 2. adidas Originals Superstar 80's - Shop Now 3.
