Loake Hebden Black
Founded by English brothers John, Thomas and William Loake in 1880, Loake Shoemakers have produced some of the world’s finest footwear from their Wood Street factory in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Family-owned since the very beginning, Loake are proud of their history and heritage as traditional shoemakers. One of the many reasons we love Loake is their attention to detail and ensuring the highest quality in everything they do. Each individual pair of Loake Goodyear Welted shoes takes eight weeks to produce, with up to 130 skilled craftspeople, up to 75 shoe parts and 200 different operations are involved. They believe there is no finer way to make a shoe.
