Made for bands, music fanatics, individuals with eclectic tastes, punks and pin ups.

Founded 25 years ago, T.U.K. Shoes created unique footwear inspired by individuals with eclectic tastes. Today, T.U.K. has a wide range of footwear including creepers, nosebleeds, creeper sneakers, boots and accessories.

Originally from Northampton, England, T.U.K. founder Ian White moved to the sandy shores of San Diego, California in 1990 and a year later the brand was born. Ian White, whose family had been manufacturing English footwear since the 1890s, brought with him the distinctly British sensibilities of family’s business and found tremendous inspiration in the blossoming So-Cal punk rock scene. The result: a one-of-a-kind brand of footwear that channels punk roots across continents.
