A note about COVID-19
First off, we hope you and your loved ones are all staying safe during this health crisis.
As we are all aware of by now, the severity of COVID-19, and the impact it is causing, are unprecedented. It’s a strange and unpredictable situation, but we feel it’s important to let you know our plans for dealing with the situation here at LANE EIGHT.
Our store is open but we have taken steps to ensure all customers and staff are kept safe. We are committed to the safety of our employees and customers, and the most certain way to keep everyone safe is to minimise contact. Our online store is also open and we’re now offering free shipping in Hong Kong, so you can still shop all your favorite colors online. However, we do expect our deliveries to take a few days longer than they ordinarily would due to the disruptions.
With that said, the situation is complicated and fluid, and so our plans might change. If they do, we’ll make sure to update everyone as changes happen.
In times of uncertainty, the importance of our families and communities come to the fore. We’re fortunate to be a part of an incredible worldwide family and community, and our commitment continues to be serving you guys – not just by making the world’s best workout shoes, but also by providing a shoulder to lean on. If you have any questions or thoughts, or simply need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to reach out – we’re here for you.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay strong!
The LANE EIGHT Team
What’s the name all about?
The name LANE EIGHT comes from the world of track and field. In a race, the 8th lane is typically one of the hardest lanes to start from since you’re on the outside – but you’re still in the race, which means you still got a shot. That’s the attitude that we embrace – we’re on the outside and we’re definitely the underdogs, but we’re still in this race!
How do your shoes fit?
The Trainer AD 1 generally fits true to size. They’re designed for a close, supportive fit and may feel a bit snug at first, but will quickly break-in and become your new favorite shoes. However, if you have a wide foot we recommend going up a half size. If you are still unsure of which size to go for, check out our comprehensive size guide here.
Do you carry larger women sizes?
Our shoes are unisex and therefore offer the same fit for women and men. If you do not see your women’s size available, you can simply convert your size to the equivalent men’s size. There is one full US size difference between women’s and men’s sizes. For example, if you are a women’s US 10, the equivalent men’s size is US 9.
What's the heel to toe drop?
Our heel to toe drop is 10mm but due to our textured sock liner, it feels like 8mm.
How do I clean my shoes?
If your shoes are starting to look a little less than fresh, we recommend starting with a firm brush or toothbrush to remove all loose dirt and debris. Then, apply water or cleaning solution to your brush and gently massage the stained area. For a more detailed cleaning guide, check out this link.
When will you release new colors?
We are always working on new colors and looks. To get the most up-to-date info for release dates, sign up to our email and follow us on Instagram @laneeight to be the first to know.
Can I remove the sockliners?
Yes, our sockliners are easily removable. So if you need to wear your own orthotics, removing our sockliner to add yours is a piece of cake! However, for the ultimate experience, we suggest you keep them in.
Are your shoes vegan?
We have started to shift away from using animal materials, and all LANE EIGHT sneakers from August 2019 onwards will be made without any animal materials. Currently, our only vegan options include Dusty Taupe, as well as our recently released Eco colors: Pale Birch and Icy Mint! Read more about this shift here.
