Crime London is a vintage inspired, handmade footwear brand that focuses on creating extraordinary, yet wearable trainers. Being a company of rich history for four generations, Kistermann family has held a diverse range of global businesses with spectacular reputations. In 2012 the company decided to create its own brand that was then taken over by the sisters Lisa and Jessica Kistermann who combined traditional family aesthetics with modern, avant-garde grunge characteristics.
Inspired by the sounds and vibes of London’s underground districts, the brand embraces the alternative and edgy rock scene of Shoreditch, Camden Town. Emphasizing the style of East London, the brand holds an ambition of staying youthful, dynamic and cool, whilst delivering footwear that is suitable for all ages; for people that dare to stand out and are not afraid of being “uncool”.
Delivering supreme quality designs and unseen details; not to mention the usage of premium materials and resources, Crime London approaches music, art, feelings and experiences in an exceptional way. Cool and funky, the brand detains close to being a brand of clarity, enhancing and accenting cool lifestyles whilst always referencing back to the rhythm of time. Edgy designs are often accentuated with distinctive zips, enhancements and textures that allow the brand to be divergent. Repeatedly incorporating contrasts and controversial combinations, Crime London showcases unique aesthetics that come through their phenomenal and individual footwear.
Being successful from the very first season, the brand has been growing in rapid success and acknowledgement throughout six seasons over the past three years. The growth then led to the brand now being distributed throughout the whole Europe, Japan and some countries in the Middle East.
