The Loake 1880 collection is Loake’s premium range of shoes and boots. These are all made in their Wood Street factory in Kettering, Northamptonshire and compete with very much more expensive brands in terms of materials, craftsmanship. At BradshawandLloyd.com we are proud to offer the entire range of Loake 1880 footwear whilst our Hurstpierpoint high street store stocks more shoes from this collection than any other high street store outside central London. As you would expect we stock the styles in half size increments.
Most Loake 1880 shoes are made on the Capital last which in our opinion provides the perfect shape for a city shoe. It provides a fashionably shaped toe without being too long or pointy. Essentially for online orders the Loake 1880 collection provide a regular fit so you can be confident that they will suit should you order your usual UK size. Loake totally understand the importance of this when ordering online. All these shoes and boots are fully leather lined with leather insoles. On some styles there is an option of either a traditional leather sole or a harder wearing Dainite rubber sole. Both have their attributes but essentially both are attached to a leather welt using the traditional goodyear welted method.
Inevitably we have our favourite styles from the Loake 1880 collection and here we happen to coincide with what Loake reckon is one of their very best selling styles: the Aldwych toecap Oxford. The Aldwych is available in black calf, tan burnished calf and dark brown burnished calf. If you are able to do pop by our Hurstpierpoint store just outside Brighton where you will be sure to find something irresistible.
