- SIZING ADVICE -

The information below has been created to help customers find the perfect fitting shoe. We encourage you to spend 5-10 minutes reading this page to learn how LANX shoes fit. If after reading the below advice you still need more assistance please don't hesitate to  contact us.
It is worth noting the advice below is already on each individual product page. When browsing the LANX website and you find a shoe you like scroll down the product page to read the 'Information & Sizing Advice' section under the product images or video.
What is my UK shoe size?
If you are not familiar with UK sizes please visit our size conversion chart page to discover which UK size matches your EU or US shoe size. 
Do LANX do wide fitting shoes?
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 shoes lasts: LX-A (men’s shoes), LX-B (Men’s shoes), LX-S (men’s Chelsea boots), LX-T (men’s boots), LX-K (women’s shoes) and LX-U (women’s boots). 

My new LANX shoes are a little snug, will they stretch?
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 perceive breaking them in.

Do you offer free UK returns & exchanges?
In case the fit isn’t quite right 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.

Can I call LANX to discuss shoe sizing?
Yes, you can book a chat with one of our team who will answer all of your sizing queries. To use our calendar booking system to schedule a chat with one of our team click here.

What is a "shoe last"?
Below we talk about 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 shoes is manufactured on a shoe last which gives it its distinctive shape 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 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 product page, located in the 'Information & Sizing Advice' section.
LAST: LX-A
This shoe last is most commonly used on our men’s shoes and brogues. If you are usually a full size in most footwear please purchase this style in your regular full size. However, if you are usually (or sometimes) in-between sizes we recommend going down rather than up. For example if you are usually a size 9.5UK please buy this style in size 9UK. If you currently own shoes from various brands in different sizes then we would recommend going down in our LX-A last rather than up. For example if you have a pair of size 9UK shoes in 1 brand but size 10UK in a different shoe brand, we would suggest buying a size 9UK in our LX-A last. To view all our footwear built on LX-A last click here.
