The export grade is the most exclusive group in the Loake collection. Our current production on this group is around 120 pairs per week (4500 pairs of Loake 1880). Details make this shoe, for example on the sole the shoe has 10 stitches per inch on the 1880 we have 8 stitches per inch. Also a very nice detail is the "Londen waist" or the "West end" this is the name of the bridge that is on the sole of the shoe. This gives the shoe a slimmer look. We use the best calf available on the export grade. The export grade is only sold in the franchise stores and the top end retailers. Wearing a pair of export grades will certainly give you a conversation topic on your next party.
