LANX works with small independent suppliers and shoemakers to produce a varied range of highly quality formal and casual footwear. We work with different shoemakers so that we can source the very best craftsmanship for each specific style of footwear we produce. Not all shoemakers are the same and the very best tend to specialise in one type of footwear so they can perfect their craft. The saying goes... "Do one thing well".
Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020 we have found it imperative to source footwear, leather and components from a variety of suppliers both in the UK and overseas. The reason for this is to maintain supply of materials and footwear all year round. When one of our partners (or a whole country) has to suddenly stop production we can shift sourcing to another location. Without the supply of continuous materials and footwear our business will cease to exist. Working in this manner allows us to maintain production, a steady flow of income and most importantly save jobs.
LANX is still a young company, having only launched in 2018, however we have aspirations to build our own Lancashire based shoe factory. With the help of our followers we hope to invest in our own factory and create more jobs in Lancashire. Would you like to support our vision? If so please sign up to our Crowdfunding campaign for further details on how you can support the LANX shoe factory project.
