Notes to Editors:


Footasylum is a UK-based fashion retailer focusing on the branded footwear and apparel markets. The Company retails "on-trend" product ranges which are predominantly aimed at 16 to 24-year-old fashion-conscious consumers and are sourced from an extensive stable of third-party and own brands. These include well-known sports and casual footwear and apparel brands, as well as up-and-coming brands and own label products.


Examples of third-party brands include: adidas; Nike; The North Face; Gym King; Converse; New Balance; EA7; Vans; Nicce London; Under Armour; Tommy Hilfiger; and Calvin Klein. Examples of Footasylum's own brands include: Kings Will Dream and Alessandro Zavetti.


The Company operates a multi-channel model which combines a 70-strong store estate - in a variety of high street, mall and retail park locations in cities and towns throughout Great Britain - with a fast-growing online platform and a recently launched wholesale arm for distributing its own brand ranges via a network of partners.


Footasylum was founded in 2005 and the Company's ordinary shares were admitted to trading on AIM in November 2017.
