Loake shoemakers are by appointment of Her Majesty the Queen of England. The majority of the collection has been and still is made in England.
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. Each pair takes eight weeks to make, and we still believe there is no finer way to make a gentleman's shoe.
We estimate Loake has made over 50 million pairs of Goodyear welted shoes since it began.
Their aim is to uphold the timeless tradition of handmade footwear and continue making the most handsome, comfortable and durable shoes they can.
