selected-by-nottinghamTales of vigilante’s roaming Sherwood Forest have forged memories in the mind’s of generations through the story of Robin Hood, but there’s much more to Nottingham than men running around in tights…

The cities rich history can be seen in traditional structures dotted throughout the streets, timber framed buildings have stood the test of time since the Tudor era. But as with time, Nottingham is evolving, both structurally and culturally. The introduction of The Nottingham Contemporary in has brought internationally acclaimed creatives to the city to exhibit, and you can see world class art first hand, free of charge.selected_by_size_nottingham_edited-50_small_Our Nottingham store has sat in it’s current Clumber Street location since October 2014, after residing in a smaller space at the other end of town for 8 years. Deceptively large when viewing from the street, the enormous space plays host to two floors of footwear, clothing and accessories, including dedicated Carhartt and adidas Originals area’s full of the latest product. During the shopfit we uncovered an incredible brutalist-era ceiling that spans the length of both floors, and we commissioned celebrated 'doodle illustrator' Jon Burgerman to create a bespoke mural for the second floor.
