The Loake shoemaking tradition began in 1880 when brothers Thomas, John and William opened a factory in Northamptonshire in the heart of the English shoemaking industry. The aim was to provide the most handsome, comfortable and durable gentlemen’s shoes possible. The present factory, in Wood Street, Kettering, was built by the brothers in 1894. Today, five generations later, Loake continues to be family owned and prides itself on the exceptional quality that only traditional skills and a family heritage can achieve. Loake are most famous for its fine, handcrafted Goodyear Welted shoes. Only the finest grade leathers and materials are used to create this renowned brand of footwear.
