Please tell us more about what is on offer at Alternative
Alternative Footwear we aim to offer the best services
possible as well as the best value. We offer not only retro
shoes and boots such as GoGo styles but also Gothic styles
with a friendly attitude for men and women. On top of these
ranges of high heel shoes, Gothic boots and more we aim to
offer the best customer service, lowest prices and greatest
delivery for everyone
Who are your ‘typical’ customers and what are the best
Alternative Footwear doesn’t have a typical kind of customer
as the styles we sell are very diverse. We offer everything
from Fancy Dress to High Heels, Ballet styles, Creepers and
many others. Our best sellers are our classic thigh boots, as
well as our suede creepers and classic retro style Gogo 300.
The popular culture likes Goth and Punk seem to be as strong
as ever. Why do you think that is?
think the Goth and Punk culture is as strong as ever because
not only have people become much more open-minded towards
different fashions and styles which have become synonymous
with the movements. However there is also still a cause, as
much as ever to get a point across and to stand out from a
crowd. We like to cater as best we can to these styles with
our wide range of Gothic boots, Creepers and even Gothic
sandals and flip flops!
And what is this enduring fascination people have generally
with sixties, seventies and eighties Retro in all its forms?
very much enjoy the nostalgia of retro in its forms, as well
as the fashions of course, and the music. With so many
different distinct styles from each decade, there is a style
to suit anybody and everybody, whether they were there first
hand, or simply love the image of the previous fashions.
Again, we enjoy seeing many of the different outfits and offer
shoes and boots to match any outfit for parties, fancy dress
or even tribute bands.

is very useful! Wonderful!”
