    Bordeaux is Saphir's burgundy though is it not?

    The other option seems to be Hermes Red or Mahogany, which don't seem right either

    No, Carl is right, Burgundy and Bordeaux and two different Saphir shades. Both should be available from AFPOS although I can't get into their website at the moment. With fond regards, Munky.

    Hello everyone, this is my first message. I have been lurking for a while and I decided to join you and show my first proper boots, the Loake Anglesey:

    Hi Sid. No, I bottled out and wore a pair of Dr Marten shoes, rather than my Loake Buckinghams. :)

    Ah, Buckinghams. My favourite pair of beater work shoes. These have been with me through rain, sun, dirt and are still holding up incredibly as one of my most comfortable pair of shoes.

    Buckinghams! Lightweight and really comfortable. So are their big brothers, Chesters.

    Just bought a pair of loakes at my local vintage shop but am having trouble finding out which type it is!
    hoping someone on this site will have a better idea than me!
    On the insoles I have made out Loake Shoemakers (but underneath it has the established in 1880) which is not typical of the usual Loake Shoemaker branding.

    here are some photos: IMG_4927.JPG IMG_4927.JPG IMG_7479.JPG IMG_6174.JPG

    Hermes Red works well for my pair. Though I throw in an occasional black layer every once in a while but that's just personal preference.

    The result:

    I go along with the Hermes Red, too. I don't use it very often but it gives the shoes a bit of a 'lift' every so often. Yours Munky.
