Loake Magnum – an apron tie shoe

The Apron shoe – like the Loake Magnum on the left – is sometimes known as a Norwegian shoe. The vamp is made up of a horizontal apron, that also forms the tongue, and a more-or-less vertical “wall” forming the separate sides of the vamp. The stitching is generally made into a prominent feature. Not much more to say really – some love them, some dislike them intensely!
