    Please help me to decide weather to buy them or not. I wonder if these shoes are real Loake and not a counterfeit.
    Any idea what this model’s name is?
    It says “100 years of shoemaking” inside in silver lettering.
    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    I checked Hirring as well as Loake site ,but I could not find this model. Heal has no replacement patch? Strange.

    Maybe it's just the angle of the photo, but the toe looks really bulbous and inelegant to me. YMMV, obviously.

    It is bulbous almost a gumshoe type of style. I like it. This type of shoes use to be called "inspector".

    Cool. If you like it, that's what counts.
