I am always reading people putting down loake shoes. From crappy corrected grain in their standard lines to hard soles and cheap leather in their 1880s line - Loake has certainly been ragged on here. So, I was hesitant when i decided to make a purchase. I ordered the Savoy from the 1880 line in Chestnut and could not be more thrilled. These shoes were comfortable from day one (it usually takes me weeks to break in AEs), look great, and have a nice colour. The construction seems fine and the shape is very elegant. I could not be more happy with the purchase. Anyone else like their Loake shoes (I am sure I am not the only one)? Anyone else willing to post their cheap Loake porn?
