They now export their footwear to more than 50 countries, but all of their products are still made in the same British factory that was built back in 1894. If you're looking to buy shoes that have been designed and manufactured with a lot of heart, you'll struggle to find better than the Loake boots and shoes you see here.
According to Loake’s guide to polishing fine leather shoes, you should first clean the shoes with a horsehair brush to remove dirt and dust. If necessary, you can use a warm damp cloth to help loosen some of the debris, but you must allow the leather to dry naturally before going any further.
Next, use a soft cloth to apply a small quantity of shoe cream in small circular movements, making sure to work it into any creases and scuffed areas. Then allow the shoes to dry for a few minutes before polishing them.
Make sure you use a good quality wax polish in a colour that suits your shoes. Ideally, this should be slightly lighter than the leather to prevent it from darkening. It’s always a good idea to test your polish on a small hidden area of your shoe to see how it will take before going all out. Once you’re happy, apply the polish using a soft cloth and use small circular motions. You should then buff your shoes vigorously with a soft brush to give them the shine you’re looking for.
