The Loake shoe of the month of June goes jointly to the Loake Donington and Loake Herbert driving shoes. These classic moccasin driving shoes are ideal for beach wear and simply making the most of the summer. They are identical except for the strap which goes over the forepart of the Herbert. At £99.90 they are an absolute bargain and come in a vibrant range of rich suedes: red, navy, grey, ginger and brown.
The beauty of a true moccasin shoe is that the foot is entirely wrapped in the sock-like leather upper to which the sole is attached. In the case of driving shoes the sole is composed of rubber studs, making the shoe superbly flexible. Driving shoes are not designed for excessively long walks or for inclement weather due to the very low profile but when the weather is good they are divine.
At Bradshaw & Lloyd’s shop in Hurstpierpoint we stock the full range of both the Loake Donington and Loake Herbert in all colours and sizes.
