“Quality over quantity.” “Buy less, buy better.” “Brave shoemakers, all gentlemen of the gentle craft.” “All you need is one pair of well-made shoes.” All of the above and more applies to the shoemakers over at Loake. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship goes into every pair of shoes that leave their workshop.

“Our premium Goodyear Welted shoes continue to be made in England and take eight weeks to produce. Some 130 skilled craftspeople, up to 75 shoe parts and approximately 200 different operations are involved. Only the very highest quality materials are used. This film gives you a unique insight into Loake and an intricate construction with origins that can be traced back over 300 years.” – Loake Shoemakers
