Operating on a steadfast tradition of elegant bench-made shoes, rooted in over a hundred years of tried and tested shoemaking techniques, Loake epitomises footwear distinction.
Started in Northamptonshire, England, by the three Loake brothers in 1880, the brand has remained in the family for five generations. It’s this heritage coupled with intricate attention to detail that make these shoes so desirable. Staying true to its heritage whilst evolving to keep abreast of style trends has contributed to the brand’s longevity.
Crafting elegant shoes
The construction of a pair of Loake welted shoes involves some 130 craftsman, up to 75 shoe parts and over 200 different operations. It takes an average of eight weeks from start to finish to complete each pair.
Catering to the needs of men seeking quality and tradition with a dose of sophisticated style, Loake is a natural fit for Spitz.
The Loake brand is now available at select Spitz stores across SA
