These industry standard letters, which indicate shoe fittings, are commonly used by many British footwear brands. The meaning for each letter is as follows...

MEN
'E' - narrow
'F' - considered average
'G' - wide
'H' - extra wide

WOMEN
‘D' - standard
'E' wide
'F' extra wide.

On every individual product page we confirm the fitting in the Information section. Also further down this page we include sizing notes for each of the LANX shoe lasts, and how they compare to these industry standard letters which indicate shoe fittings.

*Please note, we have mentioned size 9UK as an example, the below information applies to all men's and women's sizes...

The answer to this question depends on the fit of the 9UK shoe you are wearing from the other brand, and also the fit of the LANX shoes you intend to purchase. All brands have unique shoe fittings. For example, some brands have a slim fit and their 9UK may be closer to a 8.5UK in another brand. Or, some brands have a spacious fit and their 9UK may be closer to a 9.5UK in another brand. With regards to LANX shoes, please go to the product page of the shoes you like and then please read the notes on the same product page in the 'Information + Sizing Advice' section. In this section we give you as much advice as possible which should assist you in finding the correct size.

We do encourage customers that are undecided to purchase 2 pairs in different sizes and send 1 pair back using our free UK returns service.

At LANX we use many shoe lasts which have different fittings. For people with wider feet we would suggest looking at styles built on the following generous shoe lasts:
LX-2G - men's boots
LX-2H - men's shoes 
LX-A - men’s shoes
LX-B - men’s shoes
LX-S - men’s Chelsea boots
LX-T - men’s boots
LX-2J - men's boots
LX-2K - men's shoes

LX-K - women’s brogues
LX-X - women’s Hiker boots
LX-2E - women’s chunky brogues
Alternatively please purchase a full size up or half size up in the style you like and try these sizes out for fitting. In case the fit isn’t quite correct just send your shoes back and we will post you an exchange pair or process a refund. Worth noting that we offer free shipping and UK customers get complimentary returns shipping.

We use excellent leather in all our footwear and more often than not our shoes will need to be broken in. Shoes that may feel snug at first will soften over time and you will get a better fit to the shape of your foot. If your new LANX shoes are only nipping a bit then it is likely you have a well fitted shoe and you should persevere breaking them in.

Yes we do for UK customers. In case the fit isn’t quite correct just send your shoes back and we will post you an exchange pair free of charge. We also encourage customers that are undecided on size to purchase 2 pairs in different sizes and send 1 pair back using our free UK returns service.

On each product page (and further down this page) we list the shoe last each individual shoe is built on, plus the sizing guide for that particular shoe. All LANX shoes are built on a shoe last which gives shoes a distinctive shape, width and fit. For more information about shoe lasts please scroll down this page.

This topic is something that we have discussed at great length. Obviously our Men's and Women's shoes can be worn by anybody - they are timeless styles.

The biggest stumbling block is sizing, the structure for mens and womens shoe sizes are quite different. For example a womens size 6UK is different to a size 6uk mens (somewhere between a half and a full size difference.) Both sizes are globally accepted within their own sizing structure (Mens & Womens). but when you start to combine them (unisex sizing), that's where things start to get difficult.

We say this from experience, as we did for a while have combined unisex styles for men and women. We labelled the shoes as accurately as we could, to cater for both size structures, along with an explanation as to how they can expect the shoes to fit against their more familiar Men's or Women's sizing. Unfortunately the whole thing was a disaster and we had to revert back to the previous sizing structure, because it was much more widely recognized and accurate.

We also had to factor in international sizing too which adds a whole other realm. If we were to keep the unisex sizing structure, it's highly likely we’d hit a brick wall of never ending returns and exchanges, even with all the info on sizing in the description. We’ve noticed over the years that customers tend not to read this and opt for their usual size regardless.

To put it plainly, the only reason why we follow this sizing structure is that we want to give our online customers the best chance of receiving shoes that fit correctly and comfortably the first time round. The best chance we have to do this, is to follow the already recognised sizing structures. We are still a young company (circa 4 years old) so the risk of many returns/exchanges because the sizes are not what people are used to, is a risk too great for us at this stage.

If you are looking at purchasing some shoes from a different sizing structure that you are used to, our advice is that:
• If you are familiar with the Women's size structure but you are looking at buying a shoe in the Men's section, we suggest that you purchase the size down.
• If you are familiar with the Men's size structure but you are looking at buying a shoe in the Women's section, we suggest that you purchase the size up.

Rest assured, we do have a free returns policy though if your shoes aren't quite the right size. Please see all info here.

SHOE LAST INFORMATION

Below we talk about each of our shoe lasts and it’s probably worth us letting you know what a shoe last is before you read on. A shoe last is a 3-dimensional wooden or plastic mold. Every pair of LANX shoes is manufactured on a shoe last which gives it its distinctive shape, width and fit. All shoe lasts include the following dimensions; heel width, instep height and forefoot width. All shoes constructed on the same shoe last will be similar in shape and therefore fit. The various shoe lasts we use are listed below along with sizing advice for each. The shoe last used on each style of LANX shoe is stated on each individual product page, located in the 'Information & Sizing Advice' section.
