Grinders’ History

The Grinders British street fashion brand has been established for over 50 years and has produced, sold and marketed high quality fashion footwear and clothing through-out this period.

The Grinders brand came to major prominence during the late 80s to early 90s when their boots spearheaded the New Work and utility fashion look which first started on the street and eventually ended up on the catwalks of Paris, Milan and New York!

During this time Grinders were worn by many of the pop groups of that area, including Take That, East 17, Guns and Roses and The Prodigy.

The Grinders street boots of today were originally worn by Skin Heads and then by Punks in the UK, who often only owned one pair of boots. Grinders had to be capable of withstanding anything the elements could throw at them, and yet still be comfortable enough to wear all day, every day!

Grinders boots are currently all made using Goodyear welt technology with reinforced stitching. Many styles include steel toe caps, this, combined with top quality leather uppers make Grinders one of the strongest boots on the market today.

Grinders are truly a unisex brand with equal amounts being sold to all genders. Now being exported worldwide from Los Angeles to Moscow and are being teamed up with the latest fashion trends due to their now Classic and iconic street and fashion status.
