The Perfect Collaboration
The AW collection of Loake for Burton boasts four styles; one boot and three shoes in an autumnal colour palette and a mix of textures. Burgundy and tan waxed leather, along with navy and tobacco suede are key, drawing inspiration from the Great Outdoors, Heritage and Dockside trends. Maintaining its traditional, handsome and durable signature, the new collection, launching in October 2011, sees these two historic British brands joining forces to produce a range that offers traditional styling, with a trend-led twist. The Gibson suede shoes see the introduction of the E.V.A sole (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) which is the lightest of all hard sole materials and creates flexible, modern and desirable footwear. Teamed with chinos or slim fit tailoring, these shoes offer a dapper finish to any outfit. Another key design technique is the use of invisible eyelets. This feature demonstrates the durability of the leather and highlights the fine, handmade craftsmanship of Loake shoemakers; proving that Loake for Burton is more than just another high street collaboration. With its sleek and sturdy footwear that is confident and classic, this is a range that can be worn again and again, for any occasion.
Prices range from £125 for shoes to £150 for boots.
