Vansbuck Old Skool

Introducing this gem from the Vans Fall ’17 collection which has started to arrive at our warehouse – the Vans Old Skool Vansbuck in light gum/mono.


A classic Vans skate shoe, the Old Skool was the first to bare the iconic sidestripe when it debuted back in 1977. It features leather and synthetic uppers, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, padded collars for support and Vans signature rubber waffle outsoles.

The light gum/mono colourway and tonal laces gives off that trendy work boot vibe.

We’re chuffed to be now stocking Mi-Pac backpacks and accessories! The brand state that they ‘make brilliant accessories, accessible to everyone’ and we like that. Born in the late summer of 2012, Mi-Pac are already one of the UK’s leading accessory brands.


We love the backpacks because they are so trendy yet also super practical. Take the Mi-Pac classic backpack for example…


…you get a tough and durable backpack with adjustable, super-strong padded shoulder straps and a top carry handle. You get a zipped front pocket and a large main compartment with an internal padded laptop sleeve – and to top it all off, it’s water resistant… But along with all these practical elements, you also get a proper trendy, cool-looking fashion accessory that you’d be happy to be seen wearing to school, college, in town or on holiday. Winner!

We have some great styles now in stock including these amazing transparent backpacks in pink and blue – how awesome!


Here’s a little selection of the other backpacks we’re stocking – you can see the whole collection over at the Kates website HERE.


As well as backpacks and day packs we also have makeup bags, wash bags, travel kits and coin purses – including this magical little mermaid number!


Anyway, we love them and we reckon you will too – head on over to Kates to shop the full collection HERE.

RIO130 Rio Roller Milkshake Purple Teal Main

RIO130 Rio Roller Milkshake Blue Pink Main

The Milkshake takes the figure quad style and combines it with the popular shape of Rio’s retro trainer skates. Add in a power strap and you’ve got that extra bit of support and comfort.

Rio Roller’s Milkshake quads are also vegan friendly because they’re made with PVC leather – they also have comfort insoles and 82A Rio Coaster wheels with Rio’s exclusive design to prevent axles protruding and damaging flooring.

We think they’re the perfect skates for Saturday afternoon roller discos and also for cruising along beach promenades or through the park. You can shop all sizes in both colours by heading over to the Kates Skates website HERE. Or to see all the lovely Rio Roller products we sell, shop the whole range HERE.
