LANX is pleased to announce a partnership with Sale Sharks rugby club.
The partnership will see us provide formal footwear for staff and players at the club, having created a limited-edition business-casual brogue for the Premiership Rugby side.
We recently held a shoe fitting day at the clubs Manchester training ground, at which 80 Sharks staff and players received a bespoke pair of Player Issue co-branded brogues. The partnership will see all Sharks players, including the likes of current England internationals Chris Ashton, Denny Solomona and Tom Curry, wearing their #ProperShoes post match and at corporate club functions.
“Creating a bespoke brogue for Sale Sharks has been a hugely exciting challenge for LANX. I am personally a big rugby fan, so to work with England legend Mark Cueto and the whole Sharks team has been a pleasure” commented Marv, LANX Founder.
Mark Cueto, Sale Sharks’ Commercial Director and former player said: “It’s fantastic to have a new partner on board in LANX – an outstanding footwear brand based just down the road from us in Whalley.
“The players and staff will get to show off some of the finest English shoes through this partnership and we’re proud to welcome another leading North West business into the Sharks family.
“I’ve said this before, but as a player looking and feeling your best helps you to excel on the pitch. It breeds confidence and inspires professionalism, so as well as being a great partner for the club, companies like LANX can also play an important role in helping the lads on the pitch.”
Sale Sharks fans can get their hands on a pair of the Player Issue brogues at the Northampton Saints match on Saturday 24 November. LANX will be hosting a pop-up shop at the Sharks AJ Bell Stadium up to 2 hours before and 1 hour after the match. There are only 20 pairs available, in sizes UK 9-14.
