About Us

LMNOB was born in Philadelphia, PA and reimagined in Waikiki, HI by Lawrence Blackwell (LB). LB, a shoe designer with a mission to empower people to take control of their lives through believing in themselves, became frustrated with the direction of his life and various tragedies and disappointments that he encountered in Chicago (his birthplace), Philadelphia (PA), and the place he calls home Jackson, TN.
He along with his wife, Naomi, and two children, Mason (Orzelle) and Madison, took a bold step and relocated to the serene and grounding island of Oahu, Hawaii after being away for 10 years. Lawrence and Naomi decided to carve their own path and tell their story through their brand, LMNOB, which is an acronym for Located Mostly Near Oceans and Beaches as well as the initials of their immediate and extended family, which includes grandparents and great-grandparents.
Welcome to LMNOB, a brand of handcrafted designer sneakers and shoes that draw inspiration from travel and the beach. Our brand is founded on the principles of quality, comfort, and style, and we strive to create footwear that is not only visually stunning but also practical and durable.
