Our first ever factory shop is now open in Market Harborough, Leicestershire.
You can find us in the Three Manors retail park off of Rockingham Road, easily accessible from the A508, A6 and A427 or a 5-minute walk from Market Harborough train station.
The Factory shop stocks ‘factory seconds’ from across all our ranges. Due to the variation in fault, ‘factory seconds’ will not be available from this website. To purchase these they will only be in-store.
The Loake family has been making traditional English shoes for longer than anyone can remember. John, Thomas and William Loake opened the first Loake factory back in 1880. Today, five generations and more than 130 years later, the Loake association with fine, handmade shoes lives on.
As the current custodians of Loake, we are immensely proud of the commitment of our forefathers and the tradition they worked so hard to establish. For this reason, our premium grade Goodyear welted shoes continue to be made in Kettering, England, in the same factory that the three brothers built in 1894.
The Goodyear welted construction for which Loake is renowned is an intricate process with origins going back over 300 years. Only the very highest quality materials are used. Each pair takes eight weeks to make and we still believe there is no finer way to make a gentleman’s shoe.
