For some the 1950’s was the decade that epitomised ‘cool’. The 50s had it all: legendary film icons like Marilyn Monroe and James Dean and also some from the greatest music artists ever like Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis as well as the irreplaceable Elvis Presley.

The fashion of the 50s, however, it was just as important a feature of the time as the music or movies and the distinct ‘Rockabilly’ look remains popular, particularly following the rockabilly revival during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.

There are a large number of retailers and online stores that cater for men and women who would love to recreate the look of the time. London Boots stock a wide range of shirts in a range of colours and designs. It is now possible for men to recreate James Dean’s look in the iconic film ‘Rebel without a Cause’. Ladies can recreate the style of the 50’s with items of clothing such as blouses with classic rockabilly designs, fur-lined jackets in colours from black and white to pastel pink, and two piece blouse and skirt sets available in a veritable rainbow of colours and styles from black with red spots to silver sequins.

But of course, no outfit is complete without the appropriate footwear and for the ladies there is a wide range of fifties-style shoes. Men can choose from our range of ‘Rockabilly’ footwear including winklepickers, ‘Elvis Boots’ and biker boots.

London Boots are Europe's number one retailer and wholesaler of Rock ‘n Roll, Retro, Rockabilly and 50's and 60's clothing and footwear.

Thanks x


Hi Cheryl

Sorry for not sending this earlier, it's been a bit hectic still. Trousers were brilliant, and thank you for getting them to us quickly, safe and sound!



Hi Cheryl 

Just wanted to say thanks SO much for organising the jacket and being so quick on the turnaround. 

Will recommend you!

Kind regards 



My mate took me to London boot when i was looking for something to wear for a wedding Cheryl was brilliant sorted me out with the full ensemble


London Boots a great place with friendly service I have had a few Drapes Drainpipes and shoes and been pleased with the results.


Made to feel welcome, coffee and a chat whilst the hubby decided on the clothing he wanted and two perfect dresses for me �


The Wife and I decided to call down to London boots just to have a look around. What a lovely shop and lady we were made to feel very welcome and Cheryl made us a cup off coffee, which are rumoured to have something in them lol. Because you go in for just a look and come out in our case three full bags later ��� and some tops being made to order for the wife��


 Called into the shop today hoping to find some new creepers after my old ones that I've had 18 years finally gave up the ghost when the soles disintegrated. Certainly wasn't disappointed, the lovely lady in the shop (cheryl) brought a beautiful pair of tuk leather creepers in oxblood to my attention. So of course I had to have them along with another pair in white which I've ordered. Some wonderful items in the shop and I even got a cup of tea and met a lovely dog ( What more could anyone ask for? ) nice to walk into a shop which feels like home and where you feel very welcome. You've found a customer for life.

Visited today for the first time expecting some posh shop, how wrong could I be. Party in full swing and great welcome from Cheryl and Co. Wandered around tried on dresses, went to buy cowboy boots ⛾????????came out with hand made dress and sundries plus my boots and a happy heart. Great atmosphere nothing to much trouble, should be called hand made new vintage ????. Make sure you visit it's in the castle gym and well worth it to get your bespoke items. Will add a photo of my new purchase — feeling beautiful.

Hi Cheryl

Just to let you know I received the parcel yesterday everything is as near perfect as it could be, glad I took your advice on the jacket sleeve would have been a bit short at 23.5 inches but all fits great the jacket is very impressive thank you so much for all your help I will be in touch in the future

Kind Regards

Tom Kelly
