Loake Bedale is a classic country brogue boot from the premium 1880 country collection. Derby lacing with antique eyelets, G width on the generous Pennine last, this boot is ideal for the wider foot or long country walks with heavy socks. This special version of the Loake Bedale is made using Chromexcel leather, from the iconic Horween tannery in Chicago. Tanned using a secret recipe of wax and oils, this leather is made to withstand all forms of punishment, and simply improves with age as the oils migrate around the foot creating a wonderful natural patina.
Loake Bedale is Goodyear welted, a traditional shoe manufacturing construction favoured by English shoemakers, allowing for multiple resoles. Repair not replace is the key to enjoying this style for many years, being the ultimate in sustainable footwear.
BOWHILL AND BROGUES
Brogues and the English countryside go hand in hand, and with Bowhill & Elliott perfectly placed in the heart of Norfolk, brogues have always held a special place in our long history. Originally designed for men who worked the land, the word brogue derives from Gaelic, simply meaning – bog. The punched holes that make the style a brogue would be perforated, allowing water to drain when working in marshland or, bogs! The brogue punching may no longer perforate the leather, and although still fully fit for purpose out in the wild, it has become a true English classic regardless of the terrain.
Bowhill & Elliott have proudly stocked Loake shoes in our Norwich store for over forty years, underpinning our commitment to supporting premium British manufacturing.
