Classic British design from Loake Shoemakers
Loake has been making traditional English shoes for longer than anyone can remember. The first Loake factory was started by three brothers. John, Thomas and William, back in 1880. Today, five generations and more than 130 years later, the Loake association with fine, handmade shoes lives on.
The Goodyear welted construction for which Loake is renowned is an intricate process with origins going back over 300 years. Only the very highest quality materials are used. Each pair takes eight weeks to make and we still believe there is no finer way to make a gentleman's shoe.
