Scorpio Shoes – No Tricks. Just Treats.
The Scorpio Shoes posse have just taken in our new collection of boots from Grinders and we’re feeling all cowboy. Now this doesn’t mean we are gonna build some dodgy conservatories, no we mean we’re donning our Stetsons, saddling up our best ponies and heading off to the local watering hole with our best gals. This seasons collection of western boots really brings out the cowboy or cowgirl in you, so spit out that chewing tobaccy and lasso yourself a pair of these fantastic boots now.
This week some of the Scorpio Shoes staff were promoting the Newcastle store, giving away balloons and generally making fools of themselves in reply to Dr Martens opening a new store just around the corner from our Doc Shop. As the original Doc Shop in the area we wanted to remind people that we have a huge selection of DM’s as well as a fantastic range of other cutting edge footwear. The response we got from the public was amazing and if you were in the area you probably won’t have failed to notice the sea of purple balloons and Alex in the biggest pair of DM’s you’ve ever seen. So we just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who give their support and please continue to use Scorpio Shoes for all your Dr Martens needs.

As we have previously promoted, Scorpio Shoes are featuring at this years Manchester International Tattoo Show and the buzz going around our office is whether Steve our area manager should get his first tattoo at the event?
Steve is currently body modification free but has been hinting that he wouldn’t mind getting something done, especially at the show where some of the best tattooists in the world will be showcasing their talents.
So we decided to run a little poll to see what you guys think and maybe you can help him make up his mind or not.
Don’t forget to head on over to our Facebook page to enter our competition for a chance to win up to 3 pairs of Iron Fist shoes.
Right, let’s get straight to the point. Needle point that is as Scorpio Shoes will be featuring at this years Manchester International Tattoo Show on 3rd and 4th August in association with Skin deep and Big Tattoo Planet.
We will be there with a stall showcasing some of our most daring and off the wall footwear from exciting brands such as Iron Fist and Hades to well-known known classics from Dr. Martens, Vans and Etnies. We will also be running a number of competitions to win pairs of shoes and the winners will be announced live at the event on Sunday 4th, to enter please visit our Facebook page or our stall at the event.

Here at Scorpio Shoes we have added a new brand to the Scorpio Stables, and that brand is the mighty Brakeburn.

Because of this wide variety of possible end uses, we anticipate that Brakeburn will be bought by a wide range of consumers looking for everyday fashionable yet functional footwear.
