The Edit LDN has attracted investment from footballer Ollie Watkins as part of a current £5 million funding round.

The proceeds will be used to grow The Edit LDN’s expansion in the US, Middle East and North Africa.

Watkins told Sky News: “I’ve always had an interest in sneaker culture, and joining forces with The Edit LDN seems like a natural step.”

Moses Rashid, founder and chief executive of The Edit LDN, added: “Having household names in Ollie and Josh joining our journey, marks a great next phase of The Edit LDN as we continue to drive our platform to a wider audience of customers, making the in accessible accessible.”

Early this year, The Edit LDN secured $4.8 million in seed funding in a round led by Regah Ventures.
