Are loakes durable? Might go for Dr Martens for the durability instead even though the different looks.
Best you have a look at the models and styles. Loakes are Goodyear welted while Martens are bonded, only the upper are stitched onto a PVC welt.

Other factors you may want to consider are:

1) Leather - natural vs pigmented vs corrected
2) Shape of shoes for aesthetics and comfort purposes
3) Your wearing behaviours and preferences (the rubber outsole of Martens is pretty comfortable).
