- Switzerland Review by Henrik
bought this model in tan at sale price about a year ago and have worn them around 10 times since .... leather is quite soft and the shoe has a subtle feel on the foot ... breaking-in took me maybe two or three wears ... this is an elegant but unassuming shoe, which I wear, in situations when a dapper look is required but dressed up to the nines is not necessarily an advantage
the shoe quite spacy (mine is an F) - as I have encountered the same characteristic with my other two Loake's (both 1880 series as well, wouldn't go for any lower anyway) - maybe I should try downsizing 1/2 a size once .....
- Cambridge Review by Ben
- I have four pairs of best shoes that I only wear for a day each. I always store with cedar trees and treat as required with Saphir mink oil and cream. The shoes were comfortable very quickly which is not always a good sign. After four months of light wear the soles almost need replacing. I purchased another brand of Northamptonshire shoes the same time as these and I guess I would have a couple of years more wear.

- Great shoes, super comfortable! Love Loakes. Purchased from a very friendly shop in North Wales - Elevate Your Sole. Will be buying many more!
