About Ankaa Rowing Shoes

ANKAA has been manufacturing and exporting women’s and men’s shoes since 1985. The company diversified into rowing shoes in 1995 and since then we have been constantly researching, learning, upgrading and innovating to conform to the requisite and specific needs of rowers around the world. What started as an experiment for then boat manufacturer Aylings Limited UK (now Lolacars Limited) shifted our focus to rowing shoes. We invested in superior dies and moulds at the time and have never looked back since. Subsequently ANKAA became a supplier of rowing shoes to a host of boat builders. Today ANKAA is one of the oldest and most trustworthy manufacturers of rowing shoes.

Though challenging, it has been a rewarding task and we pride ourselves as suppliers of rowing shoes to some of the leading boat manufacturers, rowers, clubs, schools and colleges all over the world. ANKAA believes in retaining its credibility as a pioneer rowing shoe manufacturer by offering value for money through its upper end rowing shoes and accessories product list at affordable prices.

The UNICORN range manufactured by ANKAA is amongst the most advanced in rowing shoes worldwide with materials being sourced from Switzerland and Germany. All ANKAA shoes are handmade to the highest standards using laser cutting machines with quality checks followed at each stage of manufacture.

An engineer with an MBA degree, our CEO, Anil Lamba has been associated with the shoe industry for the last 25 years. As a professional, he’s a stickler for quality and is well versed with the stringent quality norms and timely delivery schedules. No doubt, you’ll spot Anil at all the major rowing events around the world.
