    My loake Anglesey from the Debenhams sale arrived today, gotta say i'm impressed with the colour, can look dark brown in some lights and plum in others. A lovely boot and excellent value at £125. Only thing is they aren't for me, a present for the bro as I have already a few pebble grain brown boots myself, though if there was any left in my size now I would def be tempted having seen them in the flesh.

    I got Loake Lincolns in UK9. They are quite tight. I also got the Chester in 1880 line. These are also in UK9 and fits well.

    If I buy loafers like Herring Barcelona II or Loake Eton, should I go for UK9.5? Because loafers are a tighter fit in general?

    I wouldn't advise sizing up for the loafers, some may consider a half size down. If those are the particular models you are interested in, you could reach out to Herring for specific sizing advice.

    The Loake 'Loafer' last is known to be a little bit narrow and tricky to fit. From @pediwear Loake last guide here:

    THE LOAFER LAST – Is similar to the 025 in shape but we find there to be a little more space. Long and slightly narrow, you may find the last to be quite snug but bear in mind that loafer style footwear does stretch a little. Like the Mayfair last this one is a little tricky and we feel it is border-line as to whether an increase in size would be needed. Our philosophy though is when in doubt go bigger.

    Hi guys, just thought I'd pop in and let you know that Shoehealer is no longer dealing with Loake and all Loake stock is on sale just now, there are some good deals to be had. I was going to get the Anglesey but unfortunately the last pair in my size has been sold. Hope somebody finds a bargain.

    Seems Loake are making changes. I tried to buy Chesters in burgundy, no luck the colour is discontinued, what a shame. Then I chose Aldwych in brown dainite and same story, so I settled for the Aldwych mahogany, but I am not in love with this colour at all.

    If it's not a rude question, why did you buy a pair of shoes that you didn't like? Yours, Munky

    Not rude at all, it's a very sensible question. I am a mum buying shoes for my two boys, well men now. I chose the shoes, they chose the colours. Instead of the Chesters I chose some Carlos Santos Split toe derby and they are absolutely beautiful, so happy with them.

    Carlos Santos make beautiful shoes. I have three pairs and one pair is the favourite of my collection.

    I hope your sons are pleased with their shoes. In terms of quality, you can't go wrong with Loake's or CS.

    Very best wishes

    Eden from the 1880 line with rubber sole. Advertised as mahogany but more like cognac. Anyway, quite decent shoes and visibly casual (which i was looking for), well suited for jeans and chinos.

    I also received a very light version of mahogany, nothing like the images on the net, more like tan. So I did my own patina work with some darker polishes which was a bit scary with brand new shoes, but it turned out okay. You can see the original colour on the inside corner of the tongue. .
