Player-issue LANX shoe now available for fans

Leicester Tigers and club partners LANX have launched a bespoke player-issue Leicester Tigers X LANX shoe called ‘The Alfred’, available from this weekend.

Club partner LANX is a Lancashire footwear company, proudly working with small independent shoemakers to create handmade brogues, boots and sneakers. The focus is on business-casual shoes that are sturdy, elegant and perfect for working hard, playing hard and looking good for any occasion. 

The new Tigers shoe is named in honour of Alfred Hind, the first player from the club to be part of a British touring team to the southern hemisphere in the early years of the 20th Century. He was born in Preston and therefore connected well with the Lancashire-based brand.

As a Cambridge Blue, Hind made 127 appearances for Tigers from 1899, played for the Midlands against New Zealand on his home club ground and was capped twice by England. He played in the first three games of the British tour to South Africa in 1903 while still uncapped at national level.

The Alfred shoe is available to purchase in the Tigers Club Shop at the stadium from this weekend – in perfect time for Christmas.

LANX have enjoyed great success nationally and internationally since launching in 2018, blending innovative “business-casual” designs, the finest leather and materials, and limited-release quantities which have attracted a loyal following and great feedback from customers.
