Over the past 127 years, Loake has built up a level of expertise in the manufacturing process of classic goodyear welted gentlemen's shoes which is almost unmatched by all the other major shoe manufacturers. Many of the more recently established mens shoe manufacturers don't even use genuine leather but instead use a cheaper material (which is usually imported) to cut back on costs. Although these shoes seem more desirable at the point of purchase, once you put your foot inside them and wear them for a few months, you will soon realise why paying that little bit extra makes such a big difference.
At Stuarts we have opted to stock the heritage archive designs which Loake's are most famous for. The "Royal" Brogue available in two colors black and burgundy. Another Loake Classic style is the Brighton loafers, all of which you can find online, right here, at Dandy Fellow.
