LOAKE '1880 Legacy' collection

How the Loake 1880 Legacy was born

This premium range reflects the way Loake made their fine, handmade shoes when the family opened the first Loake factory in 1880. Today, they are made in the factory that the brothers established in Kettering, Northamptonshire in 1894.

This new collection combines traditional shoemaking techniques with the highest quality materials that Loake can source. It takes a long time to make shoes of this grade, but it’s worth it for the intricate detail and hand-finishing that sets them apart from others.

The intention is to show English shoemaking at its finest and Loake believe this is a collection to which many shoemakers can only aspire.
