Over the last 6 months we have been very busy behind the scenes developing a new range of business-casual shoes and boots, for both men and women. The latest styles are by far and away our most technically advanced in terms of specification and materials used.
The new styles will be released exclusively to our newsletter subscribers first on Saturday 4 April 2020. We plan to ship all orders WC 20 April 2020. For teaser photos please follow our social media pages over the next 7 days.
In the upcoming range we have introduced new improved leathers which are noticeably thicker. We have previously used leather thickness in the region of 0.8mm-1.2mm, we have now increased this up to 1.6mm-1.8mm and also introduced full leather lining throughout all styles. The new thick leather increases the weight of the shoes slightly and means the shoes will take a little longer to break in, however they will feel much sturdier and will last many more years as a result of these changes.
Increasing the quality and spec of our new shoes and boots means a slight increase in our pricing, however we are confident our customers will not be disappointed with the changes we have made.
Matt, Head of Design, has grafted tirelessly to create designs that we are very proud of and excited to release. Over the last 12 months Matt has worked at many markets, events and our Whalley Warehouse shop, talking to and learning from our customers face to face. This provides him with vital information for the LANX range building. The new range is a combination of Matt's design skills and also suggestions given to us by LANX customers.
A notable mention is the return of some highly requested Women's styles, with a new and improved twist. Our very popular Robinson boot from last year has returned (new name 'Chipping') with some slight alternations, design tweaks and a new rubber sole.
Another exciting development is the introduction of larger sizes in men’s, now up to UK 14, and also women’s, now up to UK 9.
In addition to our soon to be released collection of business-casual footwear we also recently launched a range of handmade sneakers. The reception has been fantastic and within the first few weeks a number of styles and sizes have already sold out. Below is a video from the sneaker factory which gives you a taste of the sneakers highly quality and meticulous attention to detail during production.
Online Orders Update
Our website is still open for business. Marv lives a few minutes walk from the LANX warehouse so he can luckily combine his daily exercise with a trip to HQ. Our local friendly couriers are kindly collecting parcels daily and we can still also offer free worldwide shipping. We have implemented additional cleaning protocols to ensure that all orders remain free from contamination and that each and every pair of shoes reaches you in the safest way possible. Please update us with any additional delivery instructions at the checkout stage.
