Okay, I know little about shoes, but from looking at the photographs, I think the matter is not that simple.
For example, the calf skin semi-brogue on CT site:
shows that the heel is leather with rubber insert.
Loake Tweed 2 (calf comfort), however, seems to have rubber heels.
While Loake Durhams (1880) also have leather heels with rubber insert.
Similarly, CT Derby shoes have leather heels with rubber inserts:
Loake Arundel has rubber heels.
(Strangely enough, Pediwear puts Arundel in 1880 category while the Loake website itself puts it in the calf comfort collection).
Of course, both CT wholecut (sharp brogue) and Loake 1880 Norwich have leather heels with rubber inserts.
So I think the CT "calf" lines are Loake 1880 or made to the same standards with designs from other lines.
If I am wrong, please don't hurt me. I'm a newbie and don't know jack.
