LUGZ | HISTORY

Always an innovator and leader in urban footwear, Lugz first made a name for itself in October of 1993, bringing its first line of boots to market, with the initial product consisting of two styles of boots, a quilted vest and a pair of jeans.

Soon Lugz was endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop and has continued to do so throughout the years. One of such collaborations led to Lugz breathing life to a whole new category of footwear with the introduction of the first ever celebrity-endorsed "Funk Master Flex" urban driving shoe. This was only the beginning, as support then led to a collaborative line with hip-hop superstar Bryan "Baby" Williams, aka "Birdman" with his own series of sneakers and boots.

In 2006, Orange County Choppers, the world's premier builders of custom motorcycles, signed on to endorse Lugz shoes, which they were already wearing so it was a natural fit. With its aggressive "built for the city reputation", Lugz collaborated with Paul Teutul Jr to create a signature Lugz shoe, "the Torx", which interpreted this incredibly well.

In the fall of 2008 Lugz shot on to the Mixed Martial Arts scene signing its first two MMA fighters, Lyoto Machida and Houston Alexander, as endorsers. With MMA becoming the fastest growing sport/entertainment platform with an increasingly growing fan base, Lugz was excited to be a part of this growing trend and later signed Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. In 2010, Cain Velasquez, who currently ranks #2 in the MMA heavyweight division, became the newest endorser of Lugz. From its inception, Lugz footwear has been an innovator in the footwear market from its trend-setting styles such as the Strutt, Drifter, and Charger, to creating signature styles beyond boots, and has added casual shoes and athletics to the mix for the Lugz men, Lugz women and Lugz kids lines.

my normal is 9.5 but usually get a 10 because of my bunion. I like my shoes roomy - but not so much that they rub to cause blisters. these are roomy enough for my winter socks without being too tight. very comfy for long day walking, even the tongue is padded !

Third pair of Lugz for my husband. He loves these shoes. He wears and tears on his shoes very easily but these really hold up.

I'm surprised by the negative reviews - maybe people are most inclined to post if they have a problem. I've been buying nothing but Lugz Drifters for several years and every so often I have to make myself throw out a pair. I've only had one where the sole actually cracked across where it flexes. Other than that they last and last and last, they have always stayed comfortable even long after they're too beat up to wear anyplace decent. I even wrote to the company once to suggest that they should put the shoelace size in their website catalog as I never seemed to get the right kinds of replacement laces. They wrote back and told me to send the number inside the shoe tongue (I did so for four different pairs I own) and they sent me two new pairs of laces - theirs are better than the cheap ones from the store - and at no charge. I'm a Lugz fan and I don't even bother looking at anything else, not with the luck I've always had with Lugz.

My husband loved his last pair of Lugz, he is a truck driver and Is on his feet a lot making deliveries. This pair after 2 months has fell apart, the insides are awful and he says they are to uncomfortable to wear.

Not a fan. Just got a 2nd pair for my husband and the same defect occurred. The seam split. Bummer because everything else was great about these for a work shoe for him. Tried twice. Will not purchase these again.
