Loake Shoemakers

Jun 28, 2011

This isn't the first time I've posted a video on the shoe-making process, but I enjoyed this video because it gives some introspection on the pride that the factory workers at Loake take in their work. It's always satisfying to know that the people you do business with have the right priorities and will refuse to cut any corners at your expense.

"Our premium Goodyear Welted shoes continue to be made in England and take eight weeks to produce. Some 130 skilled craftspeople, up to 75 shoe parts and approximately 200 different operations are involved. Only the very highest quality materials are used. This film gives you a unique insight into Loake and an intricate construction with origins that can be traced back over 300 years."
