Stand out, like a pair of Red Shoes, in the way that you live
and in the experiences you create for others


Red Shoes stand out from the crowd

Red Shoes Living is a way of life, which provides the tools and perspective to live in the moment, to chase your dreams and to positively influence everyone you come in contact with. Dare to stand out, dare to live greatly, dare to live a Red Shoes Life. 

 Culture, Leadership, Life

Red Shoes Founder, Lonnie Mayne, shares how to take your first steps in Red Shoes in the video below.

 thought leaders from some of the world's most trusted brands are inspired by Lonnie's Red Shoes presentations 

I’ve heard many motivational talks in my professional career but nothing as genuine and impactful as Lonnie Mayne’s “Red Shoes Living” talk. Lonnie is a master story teller and is able to capture the audience in a way that hits them to the core in a very moving and positive way. I’ve heard Lonnie speak about Red Shoes Living twice and both times I walked away feeling deeply inspired to ACT - to deliver better customer experiences, to better understand different perspectives, to be a better professional, and to be a better person. Lonnie is a phenomenal leader and a tremendously inspirational speaker. I’m a big fan of Lonnie and am a convert to his “Red Shoes Living” message.

No matter where I am in the world today when I see someone wearing red shoes I wonder if they have heard the story, or better yet Lonnie tell it. Red Shoe Living is a terrific way to navigate life. Our ability to connect at any time has made the world a smaller place and an argument could be made that it’s impossible to care about everyone’s story. Red Shoes reminds me, it’s not only possible but that I am responsible for the care and concern of ALL others.  If you work in a service environment there is nothing more powerful than this message and I am grateful to have shared this at Express to drive an amazing associate and customer experience. Thank you Lonnie, my friend and colleague, for this wonderful view of the world and our place in it.

NHS Elect invited Lonnie to our Annual Conference two years ago and colleagues are still talking about his presentation on Red Shoes. Lonnie embodies the core values of emotional connection, empathy and humbleness with people regardless ‎they are your customers or colleagues or strangers. His messages are universal, his challenge to us to be kinder and do good couldn’t be closer to our health care service values and his personal impact on the day was unforgettable. You can certainly add the NHS to your fanbase!
— Sue Kong - Director NHS Elect
One of our long-time clients brought Lonnie into speak to 900+ attendees at their Annual Convention.  The FIRST team was so moved by the session we knew we had to share what we learned and asked Lonnie to come speak to our employees at our winter off-site meeting.  After his presentation our CEO noted there was “not a dry eye in the house” – everyone was so moved by his experiences and the idea of putting ourselves in others’ shoes.  We see every day how we deepen our client relationships by taking time to listen to their needs.  One of our Producers still wears his red Converse to shows to remind him to go the extra mile every day.
