    Wow--I didn't believe you--but you're right. WTH?

    I know Loake only ships in the UK, but I didn't know they prevented their distributors from doing so as well.

    Do you have any friends in the UK? They could buy and ship to you.

    Also, there are reshipping companies that might be a workaround.

      Yep. Sucks, eh? I have friends in the UK that could buy and ship for me. However, the bigger issue is finding the right size/fit, especially since I've never tried on any Loakes. I would hate to have friends go through that effort for me only for me to have to return them.

        I'm looking for something in the same style but higher quality/resoleable. Specifically, something that is:
        • Suede
        • Chocolate brown
        • Sleek, suit-appropriate shape
        • Rubber sole with enough lug to wear on snow and ice



        Any recommendations? I am ok with spending a bit of money but am nervous about some of the more commonly-mentioned overseas brands that might be hard to try on for sizing or have expensive return shipping.
        So, you started out by indicating you're not really comfortable with overseas brands.

        Have you found anything else you like besides the Loake?
