    Took my Loake 1880 Dovedales for a walk today. Bought them about two months ago. Very happy with them overall. The break-in period was rather long and caused me some heavy-duty blisters while the leather around my ankles dug painfully into my skin and left some nasty sores. Now tat they’re broken in and soft and lovely they are a pleasure to wear. I’m not sure I own anything that gets complicated quite as often as these. Considering the price I’d say they are a great boot.

    For those in the US (or non-UK), have you had shoes resoled by Loake? The website primarily discusses UK customers but not those outside GB. Thanks.

    If outside of UK, I recommend a good local cobbler.

    I recently sent a pair back to Church's for full recraft. With total costs, should have used local guy.
