Loake Shoes, by far the best buy, stylish, comfortable, hard wearing, and good after sales service.
I am generally new to the shoe trade, however since becoming Loake's representative here in Portugal, have worn during my travels many models namely Badminton2, Harrow, Ayre, and Banks Boot plus a pair of Silverstone 2 for driving. I have found thes shoes extreemly comfortable and above all at the end of the day it is so pleasing for your feet not to be saying Iam tired.
It is a known fact we are not all equal in size and shape and that some feet are larger in width therefore for people who have broad feet (no Matter if it is only one foot) buy shoes that fit with a little room for expansion when the foot becomes hot. Geerally speaking if the normal size of the shoe to be purchased is an F fitting and the foot feels tight in it buy a model that has a wider fitting as Loake produce various models in G and now also produce extrawide on other models.
As with all good quality shoes it is an advantage to have many pairs as with this quality of shoe wearing should be alternate this allows the shoes to air and dry out ready for th next wear. And do use a good quality shoe cream/polish and apply after shoe has rested. This will perlong the shoe life and keep appearence as new.
