I also don't share PG's hatred of all things Loake. I have a couple of 1880 range shoes, as well as a pair of mainline shoes with rubber soles, which I use as wet-weather beaters. Compared to other English shoes I own, the 1880 aren't terrible by any means. They are certainly not as well made or finished as my Trickers, Grenson Rose, C&J or Church, but that is to be expected given the different price point.
