Although the Loake Gable isn’t a new member of the ever expanding range of instock Loake shoes it is certainly one of our favourites and certainly deserves the title of shoe of the month. The shoe is made on the Loake Claridge last which provides a really stylish shape to an otherwise very simple design. Some plain Gibson shoes can look a little orthopaedic but not the Loake Gable. This shoe is a design classic without being overstated.
The shoe ticks all the boxes in terms of quality without being beyond the means of most men looking for quality. It has a full grain calf leather upper, is fully leather lined with a leather insole and has traditionally goodyear welted durable stud rubber Dainite soles stitched to a leather welt. You really can’t ask for much more.
With winter approaching the rubber sole is a good idea with improved grip on the pavement and the extra durability which you’d expect from Dainite. The Loake Gable is available in both black calf and a rich dark brown calf. At just £200 along with your free pair of shoe trees or deluxe shoe care kit the Loake Gable is an absolute must for the discerning gentleman. We stock all sizes in both colours at Bradshaw & Lloyd.
