Our favourite Barker styles:
There’s a small collection of Barker shoes which we simply love at around £235. From the Barker Professional Collection these five traditional styles offer every classic style of formal shoe that most men will ever require for their wardrobe. Although they are different in outwards appearance from one another they are all made on the 386 last. The 386 last combines a good generous width fitting with a very elegant shape. We recommend the Dainite rubber soled version of these shoes which is very hard wearing and provides great traction. These Barker shoes are made entirely in Barker’s UK factory at Earls Barton and are made using the traditional goodyear welted method of construction and use the very best leathers.
The three eyelet derby March is available in both black calf and dark walnut calf.
The five eyelet toecap Oxford Malvern is available in black, rosewood and dark walnut calf.
The four eyelet derby toecap Morden is available in black, conker and espresso calf.
The half brogue Mirfield is available in black, dark walnut and espresso calf.
The five eyelet full brogue Malton is available in black, cedar, espresso and burnt oak suede.
You can obtain all these Barker shoes from Bradshaw & Lloyd.
