John Loake opened the first Loake factory with his brothers, Thomas and William, back in 1880. Today, five generations and more than 130 years later, the Loake association with the finest handmade shoes lives on.
Screen Pages was charged with ensuring the tradition thrives moving into the digital age. Loake are immensely proud of the commitment of their forefathers and the tradition they worked so hard to establish. This message was essential for an online presence.
The site had to reinforce the Loake brand, their quality, their historic significance and, of course, their commitment to excellence. Just look at how their fine shoes are made!
“Loake wanted to build a long-term relationship with an ecommerce agency with a professional approach and a track record with premium brands such as ours. Screen Pages’ Management, Design and Technical Teams have been a pleasure to work with and we are very pleased with our new website.”
Andrew Loake, Managing Director at Loake
The real beauty is behind the scenes
What makes Loake’s site so special is the responsiveness, store locater and variation selection.
Simple content management
Managing products, orders and customers is so easy and elegant.
Magento is the most flexible, most powerful eCommerce platform. Customisable and agile, Magento gives your business the flexibility other platforms can’t.
Magento is the easiest and smoothest implementation for any modern cloud commerce platform. It uses an open-source ecosystem. Flexible for B2C, B2B, and hybrid solutions, Magento extends beyond the shopping cart.
Screen Pages and Loake have created a website that is both seamless and rich in history and variety.
Responsive web design (RWD, also referred to as responsive design) was a key focus for Loake. Screen Pages had to ensure an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices (from large, high-resolution desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
Combined with Loake’s crusade for perfection, the user experience (UX) became our obsession.
The objective was to ensure the user eCommerce journey was as streamlined and efficient as possible, whilst maintaining high regard for Loake’s premium products through superior craftsmanship.
