Loake is a traditional manufacturer of premium men’s footwear with a heritage that goes back over 130 years. The Northamptonshire-based family-owned company specialises in Goodyear welted shoes, with each pair taking eight weeks to make. At Charles Clinkard we stock a range of men's Loake shoes, including formal Loake shoes and men’s casual shoes, with free UK delivery on all orders.
Loake footwear was founded in 1880 by three brothers, Thomas, John and William. Loake moved to a new factory in Kettering in 1894, where 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 to craft each pair of Loake men’s shoes. Each pair takes eight weeks to make, involving approximately 200 individual processes and 130 skilled craftspeople.
Whilst heritage and tradition are valued in the Loake craft, the brand constantly look to innovate having developed their own Loake comfort technology. Classic men’s shoe silhouettes are updated to meet modern design and style standards.
Charles Clinkard’s range of Loake shoes for men includes leather brogues and loafers, as well as Goodyear Welted Oxfords and Derby shoes. Shop online today and receive free UK delivery on your order.
