@NOBD - 

 

Any noteable differences from Loake? They look the same but darker. Price diff?

 

Nice pair.

post #2193 of 2205
Thanks. Different construction: these are Blake-rapid, Loake is Goodyear. The suede of these is softer and smoother. The whole shoe feels lighter. The most notable difference in shape is the sloped shaft of the Velasca's, as you can see in the pic above: a sloped line from top right to the nose bottom left. I like that. Apart from that, the Velasca's have a bit wider nose, but the shoe itself is a bit narrower.

These Velasca seem to be very nice for the price and well made, but the eyelets position is completely wrong, it ruins the look.

What's completely wrong about them? If you're referring to the picture in which I'm wearing them: I have wide feet and high arches. They will look different on more 'standard' feet.

And would look much nicer as a 2-eyelet IMO.

Still, interesting brand, I might pounce on a pair from them come spring.

Ah, hadn't really noticed that. Doesn't bother me.
