In 1960 - the same year that Dr Martens launched the now famous 1460 boot - Scorpio came into being, opening a succession of retail stores across it's native North-east England
With a timely move into high fashion shoes with a difference, Scorpio dodged the recession
that hit the industry and gained popularity with alternative subcultures throughout
the 70's and 80's. Striving to promote self- expression, Scorpio became
a hotbed for a long line of cultural renegades seeking to assert
their independence, uniqueness and individuality.
Almost 50 years on from that first day Scorpio has become a leading independent
fashion shoe retailer and was recently voted by The Guardian as
the best independent shoe store in the
North of England.
The Scorpio Shoes online shop has now launched
in order to expand Scorpio’s horizons and bring
its ethos & unique brand of fashion footwear
to both you and the world.
