Loake shoes are made in England and have been the authority of mens formal shoes for over 130 years. The company was set up in 1880 by three brothers, Thomas, John and William Loake. They began the tradition of fine, handmade shoemaking that five generations of the Loake family have been proud to maintain. For this reason, the premium grade Goodyear shoes continue to be made in Kettering, England, in the same factory that the three brothers built in 1894.
The Goodyear welted construction for which Loake is renowned is an intricate process with origins going back over 300 years. Only the highest quality materials are used. They now export to more than 50 countries, offering a range of mens shoes for every occasion, with their aim to continue making the most handsome, comfortable and durable shoes they can.
