BACK TO BASICS | THE BIRTH OF SHOE LAB
From August 2019, Shoe Lab was re-branded from a hobby, into a family run Lincolnshire based brand specialising in the the cleaning, repairing and restoration of shoes.
From a small rented room in Boston, Lincolnshire, Luke, Kye & Darren took their passion for shoes into the professional world with aims to provide a high quality cleaning service for as many as possible. It is fair to say that their talent and eye for detail became more advanced rapidly, with footballers becoming clients within the first four months of business. This definitely had a knock on effect, with Shoe Lab now being recognised as a high end, premium service.
LETS THROW IT BACK WITH THIS PIC…
"Our very first milestones were achievements such as going from being based in a small rented room in a building, to then being able to afford to actually size up and buy the whole building" - Luke stated. A milestone which caused a major shift in the business was the transition from being Lincolnshire based, to then becoming a UK wide brand with the help of DPD drop off services. This upgraded the business through being able to go from a family run business, to then having the funds to employ 10 staff members to excel the service's outcomes further.
Of course, the biggest achievement so far has to be the SHOE LAB X FLANNELS collaboration which will be spoken about more in upcoming blogs.
