Store Closure

We made the incredibly difficult decision to close the Loake Shoemaker Canterbury Store which ceased trading on 20th May 2023.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who supported the business over the six year we were open

Customer Reviews

"This long awaited, family owned business brings their formula of a varied changing selection of Loake shoes with sound fitting expertise to Canterbury. Apart from great British made Loake's, the cheeky beer / coffee and a friendly unstuffy service - it would be hard to better this buying experience even on Jermyn Street."

Darren B

"Fantastic traditional shop offering tea and coffee as you decide which shoe fits best. A very customer focused experience helped me pick the perfect pair of shoes in one fitting. I would certainly recommend visiting this shop if you want a quality shoe and fitting service."

"Proper shoe shop"

About The Store


The Canterbury store began trading in June 2017 and closed May 2023 it was situated in the beautiful Buttermarket area of the city, directly opposite the historic world heritage site that is Canterbury Cathedral. The Buttermarket square is over 800 years old and overflows with character from its surroundings which was emulated in store with an exquisite store fitting.  It had a real boutique feeling and a personal customer experience like no other, this was a gem to visited.
