The Loakes Bressler is our favourite new style from Loakes. A plain derby can look a little retro but the Ridge last makes this 3 eyelet derby absolutely stunning with its slightly extended and chisel toe. But what makes this shoe really special is that Loake are using a really good grade of calf leather for the uppers. A grade of calf which you would normally expect to find in a very much more expensive shoe on the high street.
The Loake Bressler is available in both a fine full grain black calf and dark brown burnished calf. The shoe has a traditionally Goodyear welted leather sole but for enhanced wear and traction Loake cunningly let in a rubber forepart. When this eventually wears through it can be replaced with either a leather or rubber stitched forepart.
The Loakes Bressler is available in half sizes from 6 through to 11 plus sizes 12 and 13. We stock the shoe in our Hurstpierpoint store for same day despatch so do visit bradshawandlloyd.com for a preview.
