SportsShoes.com was established in 1982 by Bruce Bannister, a professional footballer with an international career spanning over 18 years.
Bruce Bannister - the man who started it all
As a striker, Bruce appeared in over 500 league games, and scored over 200 goals. He was part of the famous "Smash and Grab" partnership with Alan Warboys at Bristol Rovers in the early 1970s before finishing his professional career in France in 1981.
As an executive member of the Professional Footballers Association for 10 years, Bruce looked after the interests of players and fans, and it was during this time he recognised a need for a retail store dedicated to the specialised needs of sports men and women.
Sportsshoes Unlimited - a passion for sport
Armed with his passion for sport and the knowledge and experience to understand the needs of athletes of all standards and levels, Bruce set up Sportsshoes Unlimited, the largest sports shoes retail outlet in the world. His aim was to provide the most comprehensive range of technical sports footwear and clothing, covering the widest possible range of sports and every major sporting brand.
Crucially, in contrast to other sports retailers, Sportsshoes provided a friendly and knowledgeable environment whereby customers could receive expert advice from an experienced team of staff before buying.
In 1985, Sportsshoes launched its hugely successful mail order service and later became one of the first retailers to launch an e-commerce website and began trading online.
Sportsshoes.com - the future
Today we are SportsShoes.com and fulfil thousands of orders each week, as well as continuing to provide an excellent in-store service. With over 25 years of experience behind us, our objective remains the same, and we're committed to providing the same superb service, combined with the widest and most comprehensive product range at the best possible value.
Based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, our retail store features the most comprehensive range of technical sports footwear and clothing in the UK. With over 16,000 square feet of space, we cover the widest range of sports and brands with specialist areas dedicated to running and football.
