I love Loake shoes and I hadn't tried their boots to be honest, so I dug my card out and paid for these. They did not disappoint either, although I confess I had trouble getting them on and off when they were new (struggling, sweating and grunting is not an attractive thing when you're sitting down messing with your shoes on a park bench (or in other places, thinking about it). However, despite the initial traumas, I can guarantee they are well-made shoes and hugely comfortable, which is something Loakes always prove to be. As the saying goes "Shoes worth wearing are shoes worth repairing" and I'm now getting them resoled for their second period of indulgent ownership. Lovely...
