We Wear-test in NYC

At L&B, we wear-test every shoe in NYC, where the shoe is made.

This means we can make adjustments as needed, and we also get to see how our footwear holds up with day-to-day use.

Companies that develop product overseas typically have an inefficient way of wear-testing their styles.

They have whatever manufacturing facility is finishing the shoe report back with how the shoe is functioning and what improvements need to be made.

Maintaining quality control this way is a nightmare... it's in the production company's interest to just 'yes' the design team, and it ultimately means the customer receives a less-than-perfect product.
