Let's Talk About LLOYD

New to Peter Sheppard Footwear this season is LLOYD, a footwear brand that has been worn by members of the Peter Sheppard Footwear team for many years. Settle in, and let us tell you about this iconic European footwear brand.

LLOYD’s History 

LLOYD was founded in the year 1888 in Bremen, Germany. During WWI, the company headquarters were relocated to Sulingen, where they remain to this day. LLOYD is now the largest employer in the German Lower Saxony. The iconic shoe brand is well-loved for its range of high-quality dress and smart casual shoes which offer exceptional, long wearing comfort. 

About the Leathers 

The fine leathers used in the making of LLOYD footwear are sourced mainly from Italy, Germany, Poland and Portugal. The tanneries LLOYD partners with meet strict social and environmental regulations that ensure the high quality that characterises LLOYD. Great emphasis is placed on the condition and quality of materials in each shoe to ensure standards are met and that the leather is suitable for further processing. An active member of the CADS (Cooperation for Assured Defined Standards for Footwear and Leather Goods Products) initiative, LLOYD works with the organisation to continuously develop its processes and always avoid using harmful substances in the production of their shoes. 

Fine Footwear for Every Occasion 

Perfectly balancing athleisure with contemporary design, shoes by LLOYD are nothing but a dream to style. The LLOYD collection at Peter Sheppard Footwear includes lace-ups, sneakers, boots and even a black travel slipper. So, whether you're looking for dress or casual shoes, in black, brown or white, the perfect pair of LLOYD shoes exists for every man who values comfort and style.  

A Commitment to More Than Just Footwear 

As is the case with many of our European suppliers, LLOYD strives to reduce its energy consumption as a means to mitigate climate change. The production facility in Sulingen and retail stores in Europe are all powered by hydropower and the company is in the process of transforming its production, administration, and warehouse facilities to reduce carbon emissions.  

The Red Stripe Club  

LLOYD shoes are instantly recognisable thanks to an iconic red stripe that has been embedded into every sole since 1968. It's an unmistakable trademark for quality, precise fitting and impeccable European design. The Red Stripe Club is a club you want to be a part of, for it means you are just one of many men who value exceptional, well-fitting footwear.  

LLOYD shoes are available in a standard, wide and extra-wide fitting. To view the LLOYD range available exclusively online at Peter Sheppard Footwear, click here
