All of you Loake-lovers out there (and we know there are many!) will be pleased to know that a new Loake factory shop is now open for business.
The new factory shop stocks seconds, end of line and a selection of current season perfects covering all sizes, and so it’s well worth a trip out to Market Harborough to hunt down a great Loake deal.
And yes, you read that right, whereas the Loake factory is based in Kettering, Northamptonshire, the new Loake factory shop is actually located in Market Harborough which is, technically, in Leicestershire. For the sake of Northampton shoe purists we apologise, but as the factory is based in the shoemaking capital of the world and Market Harborough is on the Northamptonshire-Leicestershire border we’re more than happy to have it on the site.
So, what can you expect from a trip to the Loake factory shop?
Loake Seconds - up to 50% off
There’s a range of seconds with an average saving over a perfect quality shoe at full RRP of around 33%, with heavier damages discounted up to 50% off.
If you’re still looking for a perfects then the factory shop also stocks end of line Loake perfects of dropped styles that are no longer in the range. For end of line Loakes, you are typically looking at a healthy 25% to 45% off RRP.
One of the things we particularly like about Northampton shoe factory shops are the limited edition shoes that you can pick up, and Loake have shared that they might also make-up some end of line leathers in limited numbers and sell them through the factory shop. These could offer savings of 40% compared to current stock lines still being made, and so they’re definitely worth visiting for.
