Loake 1880 Legacy Range: Comfort and Style

I own and wear several pairs of Loake shoes and they always seem popular with readers of this blog. The company has now launched a new range, Loake 1880 Legacy, which is designed to celebrate Loake's legacy as English shoemakers since three brothers; John, Thomas and William Loake, opened the first Loake factory in 1880.

Combining traditional shoemaking techniques with high quality materials, the range is made in Kettering and contains a number of classic derbies, oxfords, brogues, penny loafers, monk straps and Chelsea and chukka boots. They are Goodyear welted and made on a last engineered to provide increased instep support so that they can be worn all day. Vegetable tanned linings add to the comfort and they come with leather and rubber soles. Elegant and comfortable, they can be found in leather and suede in a variety of colours.

I mention my new shoes on Instagram

I've been wearing a pair of Derwent black calf derby with a brogued toecap. Elegantly shaped, they were immediately comfortable and are ideal for semi-formal or casual use, coming also in burnished conker. Priced at £240 to £270, they are available now at Loake shops and stockists. 

To celebrate the launch of their Loake 1880 Legacy Collection, customers purchasing a pair of shoes or boots from the Legacy range either in store or from the online shop this weekend will also receive an exclusive Golden Ticket! This will reveal a complimentary gift from the Loake range up to the value of £245, to be redeemed in store or by contacting Loake direct at their factory in Northamptonshire. Valid at participating retail outlets only. Please visit to find out more.
