But do you know what, I don’t own the single and the pics online are not clear enough. So I can’t comment more, but I do have the next one. For ska and skinhead shoes, look no further than our Ikon Original footwear collection. If you’re looking for a collection of footwear that is designed to look and feel great, then Ikon is the brand for you. The suede upper has nice cord effect and if i am honest i thought would be more expensive shoe. Certainly i think it would sit well with some more high level shoe makers. But this is where i think DJ have done us good again, good looking shoe at a great value. I am not sure if Melandi made them and welcome an answer on that one. You still see them about on scooter rallies in th UK. Personally, as a shoe, I think they look pretty good and as style I think the pointy look goes in and out of fashion You will see we’ve from our categories and range from the top mod brands such as Dr Martens and the iconic Ikon Classics - whether you want to dress up smart and add that mod distinct style or you are wanting something more casual but doing so in a unique and dress up manner. You can see that we can cater for it, offering a range of authentic mod shoes to add some serious style points to your look. All mod hoes on sale are subject to Free Fast Delivery within the UK.

Amazingly the run of incredible singles continued with soul stomper Shout To The Top, with a strident piano and uplifting lyric it reached number 7 in the charts. Perhaps a little at odds to the earlier singles was the use of Warsaw in the video with its purveying greyness and communist brutalist architecture showing the way to the following year of Miners, Militancy, Live Aid and Lenny Henry as well as an increasing political bent. The B-side, the haunting and sombre beneath the gun-towers love song of Ghosts of Dauchau was as sobering as the 12” companion The Piccadilly Trail, again flirting with homoerotic tension, was as uplifting with its summery percussion. When the curtain came down on The Jam in late ’82 it was undoubtedly a relief for Weller. The intensity of their message was simply weighing too heavily on his young shoulders. The music just too constrictive for his burgeoning mind. It should have perhaps come as no surprise that his next musical venture was going to be lighter in tone. So I am going to start with The Circles. Why you ask? Well, they prompted this article. The Circles released 2 great singles at the time, and one later in the 80’s. Opening Up, the bands debut, is a classic. The song is a strong one and is still played on rallies now.These shoes will be for ever etched into our heads because of The Jam & Going Underground. Countless people wanted so much to be part of The Jam gang and what better wear than wearing the exact same shoes as Bruce Foxton wore in the video. I have worn some green ones 4 -5 times now to various events. The shoe has been very comfortable. The style hugs the foot and is not for a very wide foot. What i was surprised about was the sole, it felt hard to touch and thought it may not prove good to wear. I was wrong on this, the hard sole made it slip very nicely around Mod Club The Alley Club dance floor recently. So why am I bothering with this cover at all. Again the Mod Revival look is played out by Simon Smith. Is it important ? Well in context possibly. The song is a good one and as a young mod you are looking for reference points. You can tell the others are a mile out, but Simon is not, certainly his look was attainable. Young mods, me included ,needed something we could achieve with limited budgets. The suits looked great, but where can a 15 year old lad get a suit like them, then have the money to actually buy it? This beautiful uplifting song defines the spirit of the band like no other – the stunning lyrics were the new manifesto for the new breed: For all the lovers of mod fashion, and for the men and women who love footwear that takes influence from the style and music scene that was prevalent in the 60s, we have a pair of shoes or boots for you.

The Style Council became a household name across the World in 1985 and released their best-selling album Our Favourite Shop – it was a return (in part) to the intensity of The Jam albeit with perhaps more direct lyricism and less direct musical assault, and as brilliant as it is I can’t help but miss those first two years of incredible spiritually uplifting output and simple joie De Vivre that so defined their sound. It remains one of Weller’s favourite times musically ‘like being in a youth club’ as he once described it… and who doesn’t want to relive their youth every once and a while. Having strived so hard to get to number one though, Weller wasn’t prepared to give up on The Jam without a fight. All those early gigs to half empty rooms, the transit van tour years, the occasional critical mauling, the lost period between Modern World and subsequent triumphant return of All Mod Cons before honing their sound and image until its peak with Going Underground in both sound and vision. What I am trying to say is that there are many reasons why we buy and wear shoes, and making a statement is maybe just one of them. The shoe is still available now, Ikon make one and there are others on the net. The Ikon is pretty close to the Jam shoe, but not quite the same, the white carries around the shoe. We even have Ikon footwear that the Modfather himself would have been proud to wear, with our The Jam collection.Pete Townsend said that a lot of the groups followed the audience rather than the other way round, so I suspect the look was very Carnaby Street . Bands like The Troggs and The Creation have elements of the sixties look that suits the Two Tone shoe. I ponder if the white jeans was part of the band look then. I have always thought they stamped their MOD allegiance with this sleeve.
