There are almost limitless possibilities when it comes to crafting a pair of John Lobbs. The site needed a design solution that showed the vast number of styles clearly and navigably. We divided the footwear pages into men and women, and then furthermore into page sections for types of footwear (shoes, ankle boots, long boots and slippers). Within each of these sections, users can also choose between styles (e.g. Monk or Hilo) and select the discover more button where they can find a page for the variations of shoe style. The style variation pages utilised a CMS system to manage the hundreds of images.
The John Lobb story of 170 plus years is exhibited in a linear animated timeline. The page highlights milestones such the firms first royal warrant, moving to St James Street and recovering from the shop being destroyed in World War II.
