Lancashire shoe company with the ‘Proper Shoes’, LANX, has launched its second collection as the brand makes its mark on the UK fashion industry with its unique take on classic British footwear.
Featuring all of their hallmarks and as with all of their collections, the S/S19 range takes influence from oversea shoe adventures and has more than a nod to its Lancashire roots.
The brand, renowned for style and quality, was launched from his Nan’s front room by Marco ‘Marv’ Vaghetti. Following a shoe odyssey to learn the trade by visiting 10 countries, Marv says that the inspiration behind this season comes from his time in New York, where he studied at the Brooklyn Shoe Space.
Priced from £140, LANX S/S19 takes a seasonal air, as the weather begins to warm up. With softer, natural palettes in brown, tan, grey and khaki tones, the shoes incorporate mesh trainer material and for the first time, take on a distressed-leather texture for a more casual look.
Timeless and classic, the brand are also known for using tweed, and this trend continues this season, as supplied by Benjamin Thornber & Sons from Clitheroe. This time, LANX has also introduced a Chelsea boot and loafer.
“This is the second full collection from LANX. It’s slightly more casual to reflect Spring/Summer but we have retained all the hallmarks to make the ‘Proper Shoes’ we’ve become known for,” said Marv.
Other changes include an embossed rather than printed logo on its distinctive orange ‘good luck’ soles and new fits to some of the shoe shapes based on customer feedback. LANX can also be personalised with shoe tattooing and painting on the uppers and bespoke sole engraving is also available.
“We’ve sold out of much of the previous collection and we’ve seen people appealing for them on social media which made us very proud, so get in now if you like ‘Proper Shoes’,” added Marv.
Its success in just one year, means that it will be moving to larger premises in Whalley (LANX’s home town) in May and will be introducing new lines to supplement its core collection later in the year.
“There’s lots more to come from LANX, so watch this space,” added Marv.
