LennyLu started as a mother’s mission to create soft shoes that wouldn’t blister or hinder her child’s feet. She wanted to create beautiful, comfortable, flexible shoes from top grain leather inside and out. As the materials were being sourced the mission quickly broadened from creating a better quality shoe to creating a better quality business that provides a better quality of life for everyone involved creating them.
As a company, our team is passionate about what we do because we’re doing our dream job. For our manufacturers, we provide employment and educational opportunities in under-resourced communities to help bring them closer to realizing their dreams. For our customers, we do this with superior quality shoes that give a portion of the sale to advance education for their children and their communities.
Making a difference
At LennyLu we believe every step is important in a child's life, especially the first steps towards education. That's why LennyLu partners with www.savethechildren.org. A portion of the proceeds goes to help fund early education to put children on the right path toward a brighter future.
As with shoes, there isn't a one-size fit all approach that's best suited for all children. However, studies show that by age 4, children from low-income families are up to 18 months behind their peers developmentally. The research also shows that early education can play a critical role during this important developmental period to permanently close the gap for the duration of their education.
