Hooray for the season of LOVE! Leading up to Valentine’s Day, we’re celebrating all kinds of love while spotlighting #LaneEightSoleMates – the stories of love, friendship, and family behind our brand.
For the latest instalment of Sole Mates, we turned the lens on our very own Retail Manager, Erica, and her girlfriend, Coco. Starting with a chance meeting at a house party and a bit of flirting via social media, this couple have since become inseparable, and now are proud parents to four super-cute cats (and counting)! In-between yoga, training, and managing the LANE EIGHT stores, we got a chance to pick their brains on what sparked their attraction, what this year’s Valentine’s Day plans look like, and what keeps their relationship going strong.
I saw her in the corner of the room and thought she was the most beautiful person I’d ever laid my eyes on. Still do. 🥰Erica
For those who don’t know, please tell us who you are and what you do.
Erica: Hey y’all! I’m Eri, Retail Manager at LANE EIGHT, part-time yoga teacher, and proud cat mom.
Coco: 👋🏽 I am Coco, Personal Trainer, Trainer at LIGHTS//OUT, and part-time Social Media Organiser at WISE HK.
How did you guys meet? What attracted you to each other?
Erica: We met at a house party. I saw her in the corner of the room and thought she was the most beautiful person I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Still do. 🥰
Coco: She DMed me on IG, then wouldn’t stop bugging me. I guess I am stuck here forever. Her smile and warm personality is alright.
What are you guys doing for Valentine’s Day this year?
Erica and Coco: We are keeping it simple: home cooked, candle-lit dinner and special desserts. 😉
We are comfortable to be our true selves and openly communicate our needs as well as how much we adore each other.Erica and Coco
What are your favourite things to do together?

What is the biggest strength of your relationship?
Erica and Coco: Honesty! There’s no time for mind reading or pretending to be something we are not for the sake of the relationship. We are comfortable to be our true selves and openly communicate our needs as well as how much we adore each other.
