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 customers 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.

The Company operates a multi-channel model which combines a 65-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 eCommerce platform and a recently launched wholesale arm for distributing its own brand ranges via a network of partners. In FY17, the store estate accounted for 71 per cent. of revenue and eCommerce accounted for 29 per cent.
