The Loake 521 mens boat / deck shoes are a Waxy deck shoe, made in the EU.
The Size and fit of any shoe will depend on the shape of your foot and what type of fit you yourself prefer, we can only help guide you.The LastA "last" is a hard (typically wood, as shown above), three-dimensional form around which your hand-made shoe or boot is constructed. The shoe manufacturer will use different lasts depending on the style of shoe they are creating. The last dictates the shape, proportion, fit and character of the shoe or boot. Some manufacturer's lasts have been in existence for decades, and their sizes can therefore be non-standard - this is part of the history and character of some of England's oldest shoe makers. Here, we're going to help you to determine the correct Size for you according to the last or style of your selected shoe or boot, and the size of your foot.
