New Brand Available At Tredders: Introducing Loake
It’s always an exciting day when a new brand joins the Tredders family and today we’re thrilled to introduce you to Loake – a family-run business that has been handcrafting stunning English shoes for more than 100 years.
Founded in 1880, Loake is located at the very centre of English shoemaking, in the cobbler county of Northamptonshire. Since inception, Loake has prided itself on its understanding that handcrafting beautiful English shoes and boots requires both time and training. That’s why Loake’s shoemakers are trained to follow a thorough and intricate procedure, with the production of each pair of Loake footwear demanding an astonishing eight weeks of craftmanship and focus.
Despite making its name by producing high quality Goodyear welted shoes using only the finest materials, Loake has expanded its range over the years to include footwear options to suit every occasion.
Here’s a look at Loake’s latest styles, now available at Tredders:
Buckingham Brogue - £245.00
Available in four stunning colours including black, tan, brown and dark brown, the Buckingham Brogue is a Goodyear welted brogue, handcrafted in England. In traditional 1880s style, the Buckingham Brogue features a leather sole and a Capital last – ideal for more formal occasions, but great for providing breathable and long-lasting comfort.
Bedale Boot - £270.00
Loake’s Bedale Boot is a premium brogue Derby boot that features a Goodyear welted rubber sole to provide longevity and a strong grip. With a Pennine last, the Bedale has a generous wide fit, designed to create a roomy feel and extra comfort. Available at Tredders in tan, this is a boot that can be worn all day, every day without compromising on comfort or style.
Edward GW Brogue - £255.00
Similar to the Bedale Boot, the Edward GW Brogue is also available in tan and features a Goodyear welted rubber sole, excellent for providing the ultimate grip. Featuring a Pennine last, this brogue is best suited to those who favour shoes with a little extra space and is ideal for wear to more formal events.

The ultimate in handcrafted sneakers, the Bannister is a causal-look trainer that provides long-lasting comfort and all-round style. Made in Portugal, the Bannister features a rubber sole and a Trainer last, offering a wide-fit feel, whilst incorporating all of Loake’s classic qualities, alongside some added sportswear details for a more contemporary look. Available at Tredders in traditional brown.
Mamba - £190.00
A Derby brogue boot that combines the craftsmanship of a formal Goodyear welted shoe with the comfort of a trainer, the Mamba is one of Loake’s most favoured casual styles. Made with a Viper last and a lightweight Viper sole, these boots are perfect for everyday wear.
