Re: Shit shoes

Got all my Loake work shoes from Cheshire Oaks. I'll be fucked if I'm paying top dollar for work stuff. In my opinion Loakes aren't the best, but they do a job. They're to shoes like Swan are to pans.

Re: Shit shoes

Churches are top, well the heavy soled brogues are, but the constant repair of the leather soles is a pain in the arse. Gone French these days, paraboot for work... scruffy cunts r us

Re: Shit shoes

I got some Loakes for work/meetings, Goodyear welted as traipsing round wet streets in my  other leather soles gets cold quick. But they squeak like fuck when walking, lovely understated design in black leather. Sadly they're going back for some non squeaking ones.

Is it because they're welted or just cos I'm tight...

Just googled and its likley they've got Cork between insole and leather outer sole.

Re: Shit shoes

Brasher walking shoes. Ugly fuckers but polish up nicely and are well comfy. Ideal for site and office. About to be rebranded as Berghaus.

All them welted soles seem to squeek. And some of them are slippy as fuck. I have had to retire the paraboots in wet or icy weather as its like being fucking bambi on ice in them.

Re: Shit shoes

Currently rocking some Loake Chelsea boots for work and need to get a pair of brogues resoled.   Got a nice pair of tan Barker buckle jobs and some Alfred Sargent desert boots which are really nice.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Re: Shit shoes
