Like all LANX shoe collections, the soon to be released Spring Summer 2019 (“SS19”) range is inspired by an overseas adventure, which is where we get our “international influence” from.
I chose New York for a few different reasons; I needed some catch up beers with a mate living in the city, I wanted to spend time with some excellent bespoke shoemakers I'd been made aware of, and I booked myself on to a highly respected shoe making course at the Brooklyn Shoe Space.
Keiko, the lady who runs the Brooklyn Shoe Space, is a lovely and knowledgeable shoe craftswoman, I can highly recommend her courses. She has created a relaxed vibe and creative space for people with an interest in shoe making. It was nice meeting and working alongside people with various footwear interests; from brogues, to high heels, to sneakers.
Thank you also to Anne and Markia who let me into their personal shoe workshops in Brooklyn, and also Jon from Oliver Moore Bootmakers in Manhattan, for allowing me to spend time with his dedicated staff and learn more about his family’s shoe making history.
New York is a surprisingly chilled out city with plenty of places to think, plan and be inspired. Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is a nice creative neighbourhood to stay or relax in, with interesting people and good coffee in abundance. To see more photos of my time in New York click here.
Keep an eye on the LANX Facebook page this weekend for info on how to be the first to view and pre-order the LANX SS19 range. Please note, all the SS19 styles are only made in small numbers and are limited release. I have included some notes further down this page which details information and alternations concerning the new range .
Below is a photo of our new Park boot in distressed brown leather, absolute belter don't you think?
