About the employer

Back in 2000, the idea was born to launch a trainer retailer that provides niche product and brands in key UK locations. Each space was bespoke to its city and stocked with sought-after product that wasn’t readily available in your run-of-the-mill high street store. We catered to those seeking something different – something with an interesting story. Today, the size? community has grown significantly, spreading to all corners of the UK and hitting various locations around Europe. Still a go-to retailer for coveted, exclusive sneaker launches, the size? brand roster has also developed, as we continue to sell clothing and trainers from the likes of Nike, The North Face, Stussy, Vans and many more.
