Everybody loves to have choice, whether it’s your preferred morning cup of coffee to the best seat in the house at the movies. Having choices in the fashion industry has never been more widely embraced than it is at present, with practically every style, trend and taste catered for. When you can’t decide which style is most ‘you’, you might be tempted to rush out and buy a lot of different things unnecessarily, however that doesn’t have to be the case.

Thankfully, you can create multiple stylish looks when it comes to your footwear with just 3 versatile pairs of Loake shoes in your wardrobe. These are the shoes we’d recommend you check out.

1. The Formal Shoe  

Keep this choice black – classic, versatile and multi-purpose. A smart black shoe can be used for work, meetings, conferences, funerals, weddings, and basically every other purpose, which is why this is the hardest working pair of shoes in your wardrobe. Our favourite black Loake shoes are the Loake Rothschild, thanks to their slim fit to add a distinguished and sophisticated look to your feet, and of course the premium calf leather used to create a luxurious and glossy finish. With such an important shoe in your wardrobe, don’t neglect it – take care of it with a proper polishing kit and keep it looking like new.

2. The Casual Shoe

Tan or navy are excellent choices for a more casual footwear choice. As you can match these Loake 521 boat shoes with casual jeans, linens or shorts when the weather allows, they become a very flexible addition to your footwear collection for the spring summer months. Our recommendation would be the Navy Nubuck waxy leather option, as the subtle addition of brown leather detailing means you can pair them with more colour options on your bottom half. Less shoes – more options, it’s really win win.

3. The Trusty Boot

Every man should have a pair of boots in his wardrobe he can rely on, and you won’t find better than these Loake Bedale premium handmade boots. Note the brogue detailing, the Goodyear welted rubber soles for a durable finish and the full leather uppers for a quality look and feel. These are essential winter boots, and can be worn casually with thick jeans, or alternatively thanks to the brogue detailing around the toe you can wear them to the office when there’s a chill in the air. We recommend these in the tan burnished calf finish for truly multi-purpose Loake shoes to add to your wardrobe.
