Loakes have come up with a range of exciting styles for the summer.
Known as driving shoes with their stud rubber soles these superbly flexible moccasins make a great beach shoe. The Loakes Donington and Herbert are available in a range of five exciting suedes: tan, dark brown, red, grey and navy. And at a good price for under £100.
For a classic deck shoe but made to Loakes exacting quality standards there are the 521, 524 and 528 styles. Most of these do come with a darker sole if you are averse to the traditional white yachtsman’s rubber sole.
My favourite moccasin has to be the new Nicholson loafer with its contrasting stitching. Simply a great summer loafer worn either with or without socks. Available in black suede with orange stitching. Navy suede with blue stitching and brown suede with red stitching. These shoes have a proper stitched leather sole with a rubber forepart for enhanced traction and durability.
Do pop into the B&L Hurstpierpoint store if you can where we try and maintain stocks of the most popular Loakes shoes in all sizes.
