With so many styles and shapes of shoes in existence, it can be hard to decide what to pick. We’ve narrowed it down to the essentials, courtesy of Loake.

Loake Imagery 3 (1)

1. The Brogue – Loake Ashby

A low-heeled shoe constructed of multiple pieces of sturdy leather uppers. Features decorative perforations or ‘broguing’ in the uppers for that famous brogue look.

Originally brogues were designed for the country, as an outdoor shoe. However now they’re suitable for almost all occasions. Pair with a navy suit for a formal look, or classic blue jeans and a jumper for a smart, man-about-town look!

2. The Brogue Boot – Loake Burford in Burgundy

A Brogue Boot is built in the same style as the brogue, but with uppers covering the ankle. This burgundy shade gives a really modern take on a classic boot!

3. The Gibson Tie – Loake Drake

A simple, lace up shoe where the eyelet fastenings are sewn on top of the vamp (the front of the shoe). Great for casual wear. The contrast red stitching and sole really adds a point of interest to this shoe!

4. The Chelsea Boot – Loake Blenheim

A close fitting, high ankle boot with elasticated side gussets. Worn by everyone from Victorians to the 1960’s Mods, this is a timeless classic. Wear with skinny jeans or cropped trousers for a nod to the Beatles.

5. The Monk Shoe – Loake Cannon

A type of shoe with no lacing and instead closes with a buckle and a strap. The monk shoe is a contemporary take on a standard formal shoe. We love the suede version of Loake’s Cannon for an Autumnal vibe.
