About Us

Started by three brothers John, William and Thomas, Loake have been making traditional shoes in Northamptonshire, England since 1880. Today, 140 years later, we are still a family-run business, and our legacy as manufacturers of fine footwear lives on.

Housed in a beautiful two-storey building in the centre of the City’s bustling Stonegate, our York shop is just a few minutes’ walk from the magnificent York Minster with plenty of other classic independent shops and eateries nearby.

HANDCRAFTED, BUILT TO LAST AND SUITABLE FOR ANY OCCASION…

From the design bench to the finishing room, each pair is carefully crafted with an uncompromising attention-to-detail and infused with the individual flair, personality, and magic of our dedicated makers. The famous Goodyear Welted construction for which we are known is an intricate process with each pair taking up to 8 weeks to produce. We still believe there is no finer way to make a gentleman’s shoe.

Loake is a truly authentic British brand, having made footwear for British soldiers and officers in two World Wars. We’ve also produced some iconic designs that have become synonymous with British youth culture, such as our Brighton loafer and Royal brogue, which were first introduced in the 70s and are still in production today.

Despite our notable heritage however, we like to think that Loake is very much a forward-looking company, and we are dedicated to improving our sustainable footprint. All our Goodyear welted footwear is designed to be repairable to prolong their lifespan and encourage ‘recycling’ of footwear over sending to landfill.

Our aim is simply to make the most handsome, comfortable, and durable shoes for every day and those special occasions and over the past few seasons, we have complemented our classic designs with a range of luxury casuals. So, whether the next step is a return to the office or working from home, a step towards those next milestones or simply, towards a more mindful, handcrafted purchase, ‘The Next Step’, will always be in a pair of Loake shoes.
