We do think Barker shoes make some of the finest shoes in the UK and the range we offer at bradshawandlloyd.com continues to expand for both men and women. We like the fact that Barker are offering a fine selection of men’s shoes with Dainite rubber soles. With autumn now upon us rubber soles make a sensible choice for their enhanced grip and wear. Also they tend to have a thicker 10mm sole which does make them that little bit warmer when out and about on cold days.
For more formal wear the Barker Burford punch cap Oxford, made on the Barker 469 last, is both elegant and a fine choice for winter wear with its goodyear welted Dainite rubber soles. We are stocking this shoe in both black calf and a delightfully rich rosewood calf in our Hurstpierpoint shop so do call by if you’d like to view these or other Barker shoes.
