We are proud to announce a new collaboration with Premiership Rugby side Sale Sharks which will see the club's players and staff supplied with exclusive, bespoke Sale Sharks shoes and sneakers.
International stars including Tom Curry, Faf de Klerk and Lood de Jager are among those to receive a pair of Heywood brown brogues – re-made especially for the 2021/22 season – featuring an embossed Sharks logo to celebrate the partnership.
The collab means that LANX and Sale will work together for a fourth consecutive season, but this year we will also support Sale Sharks women's side, which has just completed a maiden season in the Premier 15s – the highest division of women's rugby union in England.
Following the launch of our first dedicated women's range earlier this year, Sale Sharks Women’s Performance Lead and England World Cup winning England captain Katy Daley-McLean was one of the first players to try on the new sneakers, which also feature a Shark fin emblem. Pictured is Katy with Jacob, our Events Manager, who was at Sale's Carrington Training Complex last month to deliver more than 100 pairs of the bespoke footwear.
"I'm a massive fan of the LANX brand and we're delighted to be linking up with them as a club for the fourth season in a row.
The shoes they create are of the very highest quality. The attention to detail is incredible and little touches like the embossed Shark fin make them really stand out.”
Sid Sutton, Sale Sharks CEO
"We're very proud of our ongoing association with a brand like Sale Sharks. Our roots and our heritage are very much in the north of England and as a massive rugby fan, Sale is a club that fits well with the ethos and values of the LANX brand.
I'm especially pleased to be working with Sale Sharks' women's team this season and that felt like a natural extension of the partnership, with our new women's range being launched this year. We've worked hard to diversify our range and we're continuing to see lots of demand for all of our products, so I'm really excited for the future."
Marv, LANX founder
