Loake – Hughes Burgundy Leather Shoe. The ‘Hughes’ is a premium semi-brogue, featuring Goodyear welted Leather & Rubber soles for greater longevity and grip. Hughes uses the ‘Claridge’ last shape for a generous fit and bold toe shape, and is available in a ‘F’ fitting. These shoes are designed and engineered in Kettering and made in the Loake high-grade factory in India, using similar materials and finishing techniques as used in their Northamptonshire factory.
- Leather and rubber sole
- Semi Brogue
Claridge | Another versatile last shape, Claridge is used for both classic English styles and more contemporary shoes. Claridge is a medium width last which should run true to size. There is a little extra (cosmetic only) length in the toe of this last, which has a slightly rounded point.
Semi Brogue | Featuring a straight toe-cap with some light ‘punched’ decoration around the toe or wing-cap. A semi-brogue is an uncomplicated option for that classic, yet relaxed look, that works great with either a suit or chinos.
