These flashy pink socks with a strip of solid black are inspired by a surprise encounter with a pack of sumo wrestlers in a Tokyo suburb.
As Marv (LANX founder) was on his way to a meeting with a small shoe factory he stumbled across the “Sumo Stable” and was surprised to find a few of them casually chatting away on a street corner, sharing cake recipes no doubt.
Life hasn't been the same for Marv since, he has become an avid follower of sumo wrestling, takes great pride in gaining weight (so he says) and he has an ever growing collection of sumo "Mawshis" (a black loincloth to you and I).
These pink Sumo socks would look perfect for Friday night drinks at Holmes Mill or an afternoon stroll with the Mrs around Lytham St Annes.

Every single LANX sock is entirely Made in England, from the design to the manufacture. The cotton is dyed in Blackburn (Lancashire), it is then spun using traditional techniques that have stood the test of time. Our socks are then hand linked and finished in small family run factory in Leicestershire, which was established in 1895 and is run today by 4th generation descendants. There ain’t nothing these folk don’t know about making Proper Socks. Each of our socks has a seamless toe, making them superlatively comfortable as well as more durable. Each sock design is inspired by a memory from our adventures.
