Who We Are
We don't take ourselves too seriously, but we are very serious about shoes.
Established in 1995 to tend to the footwear demands of the British male, Base London introduced a somewhat previously unfound, branded footwear option to the high street for the very first time. Before this, guys were faced with only high end designer or own label products.
Base London was launched at the same time as guys began to have their style dictated by dedicated men's fashion magazines, sculpting not only their look, but also their attitude and confidence, something apparent through the Base London brand.
With an overwhelming passion for delivering incredible footwear, Base London is also renowned for being confident, energetic, sociable and cheeky, not taking themselves too seriously but at the same time being serious about shoes.

Designing, developing and delivering a versatile, appealing but most of all quality range of casual, semi-formal and formal men's shoes and boots, Base London strives to satisfy even the most fussiest footwear tastes.

Fish 'N' Chips
Base London wanted to encapsulate and glorify all that is great about British youth in a range of footwear that would do justice to their beliefs and support their rebellious attitude.
On a mild British summer's evening spent in one of London's finest chippys, the Base London team tucked into a perfectly prepared, generous portion of Fish 'N' Chips and whilst sharing a conversation about what they know most about, a new concept was born.
It dawned on them that the Great British youth yearned for something new, something fresh, something that they could relate to as being aligned to their interests and supporting their views. Somehow Base London wanted to encapsulate and glorify all that is great about British youth in a range of footwear that would do justice to their beliefs and support their rebellious attitude.
The menu was set and the idea was there, now all that was left was to put together the ingredients and prepare a range of mouth-watering styles.
So as the final few mouthfuls slipped down, Base London began to lay the plans for creating a new range of memorable and lightweight footwear styles for the modern British guy. With that emerges a range of styles that embody and embrace British youth culture...laid back, colourful, quirky and most of all, fun.
