Please explain the different Fitting Codes

English made Men’s shoes (and boots) are generally made in fittings E, F, G and H and these can be classified simplistically as follows:

E=  Narrow 
F=  Medium
G=  Wide 
H = Extra Wide

(sometimes known as 5 fitting)
(sometimes known as 6 fitting)
(sometimes known as 7 fitting)
(sometimes known as 8 Fitting)


Between fittings in the same size there is approximately 1/4" difference in girth measurement.

Fittings with an X suffix are half as wide again, FX for example is half way between F and G.

Although there is no absolute standard for fittings, there is a table of measurements and we believe our shoes are made as near as it is possible to get to that "standard" as they have been for over 130 years.

The bulk of our styles are made in F fitting, as statistics show that worldwide this is the most appropriate fitting for a majority of males, but we also offer a good selection of G fitting shoes.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any fitting questions.

As a long-time Loakes customer, I usually buy them when in the UK, and must say that there are a few times I have been irked at not being able to connect to the UK website as it redirects locally. However, my buying experience was indeed top-shelf. I asked a question re sizing, got a same-day response, ordered the shoes and they were hand delivered in Sydney the next day, beautifully wrapped with a ribbon. Good work!

Excellent result, very helpful assistance from Loake Shoes, Australia. My third pair of Loakes! They will last a lifetime and be the cheapest shoes I ever bought!

I have twice ordered products from Loake Australia and both times my expectations have been far exceeded. The items were exactly as described and also amazingly wrapped. The first time by post they were wrapped like a gift with a ribbon, the second time Brigid offered to hand deliver them as I was near by. On this occasion I was given a nicely presented bag where obvious care and attention to detail had been paid. Of course the quality of Loake products goes without saying. Thank you very much!

Posted on behalf of my man... I received my shoes from you - wow! These brogues, alongside my Loake loafers and Loake boots, are the finest shoes I have ever owned. The workmanship is incredible. They're almost too beautiful to wear, but wear them happily I will. Thank you for supplying beautiful shoes to Australasia.

Cat Jay 1 Oct 2020

I bought my 1st pair of Loake shoes in 2015. They were the most expensive shoes I'd ever purchased and I have to say they took a fair bit of breaking in. But it was well worth it; they are the most comfortable and supportive shoes I have ever owned, and durable too - 5 years on and still in great condition. On this basis I consider they represent excellent value. So I've now invested in 2 more pairs (in one hit!); they arrived by courier thoughtfully packaged within a fortnight - excellent service given the destination is Sydney. I'm sure they'll give years of pleasure and comfort.
