Loake shoes

Buying high quality classic English shoes has come a long way since Bradshaw & Lloyd was established in 1990.  In those days we published a colour catalogue with some 24 styles of shoe to choose from along with a laborious order form to complete and we charged a fair amount for delivering the shoes via Royal Mail.  If the shoes then proved to be incorrect in some way the customer then had to pay for returning them.  However even then we knew that this was the way forward for men to obtain good quality shoes. We rapidly built up a very loyal customer base with people returning regularly to update their wardrobe.
20 years on the system of buying ‘mail order’ shoes has improved by leaps and bounds.  We have remained loyal to the traditional English shoemakers of Loake shoes, Sanders shoes and Trickers shoes and also Sebago shoes as they have all continued to be of fantastic quality.  However buying these premium quality shoes couldn’t be simpler now and it is difficult to imagine why a man should wish to traipse around the shops on a Saturday to try and find that right pair of shoes.  We now offer a choice of over 300 different styles of shoe and provide a Freepost collection service throughout the UK should any need returning.  Shoes are delivered via courier and the customer receives an email and text alert from the courier prior to delivery offering alternative times and addresses for delivery if required.  We maintain detailed records of any previous orders and at the drop of an email or phone call we can advise on the best size and fit to repeat customers.
The internet is of course a very competitive market and this has also proved a bonus for the customer who can pick and choose the best deal at the click of a mouse. It’s a shame in some respects of course that the high street has suffered as a result of the internet but in the long run the high street will become a much more concentrated place offering shops that really work.  In the meantime the internet will continue to go from strength to strength and at Bradshaw & Lloyd we shall continue to utilize it to offer the very best shoes to our customers at the best prices and as conveniently as possible.  Do visit www.bradshawandlloyd.com to view the very best English shoes from Loake shoes, Sanders shoes and Tricker’s shoes and of course the finest recreational shoes from Sebago shoes.
