Loake Shoes

I recently visited the Loake factory in Kettering, the British shoemaker founded in 1880, by the brothers John, Thomas and William Loake. Before shooting, I enjoyed a tour round by the founders’ great-grandson, Andrew Loake. The quality, care and craftsmanship that goes into their shoemaking is incredible; up to 240 different processes can go into making one pair!
