LANX launches Spring/Summer 19 shoe collection with a taste of the big apple

Jessica Ward | 1st April 2019

LANX, the Lancashire shoe company with the slogan ‘Proper Shoes’, has launched its second collection as the brand continues to make its mark on the UK fashion industry with a unique take on classic British footwear.


The S/S19 range features all the hallmarks that have made the limited release footwear company, founded by Marco ‘Marv’ Vaghetti, renowned for style, quality and more than a nod to its Lancashire roots with influences from overseas shoe adventures.


Marv, who launched LANX from his Nan’s front room following a shoe odyssey to learn the trade visiting 10 countries, says the inspo for this season comes from his time in New York where he studied at the Brooklyn Shoe Space.



Priced from £140, LANX S/S 19 sees a more casual side of the brand as the weather warms up, with a softer palate of browns, tan, grey and khaki, incorporating mesh trainer material and distressed leather for the first time.


The brand’s hugely popular use of tweed continues with a new pattern for the season, again supplied by Benjamin Thornber & Sons from Clitheroe, and LANX has also introduced a Chelsea boot and loafer for the first time.


He told Viva: “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.”


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 prides itself on creating business casual footwear made in limited release runs, meaning once the collection is sold, it will not be available again.


“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.


LANX can also be personalised with shoe tattooing and painting on the uppers and bespoke sole engraving is also available.


Its success in just one year, means that it will be moving to larger premises in Whalley (LANX’s home town) later this year 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 the 34-year-old Marv.



The collection is ideal to wear from boardroom to bar. For more information, visit and follow @lanxshoes on all media platforms.
