Trainers are the automatic footwear choice for many men, but these lightweight parcels of joy can take only so far. Sometimes you need a proper pair of shoes. And few brands do proper shoes better than Loake.
At Umbrella, we’re particularly keen on the new Loake 1880 Export Grade range, which, it says, “represents the pinnacle of Loake's shoemaking and is distinguished by a previously unmatched level of precision detail”.
As you can see by the pictures from the collection, there are none of those pointy abominations so beloved of today’s estate agents. Instead we’re treated to beautiful treated leather, classic shapes and intricate detailing. Plus, of course, a lovely box to keep the shoes in.
