Our choice of shoe for the summer, the Barker William:

All being well the worst of the winter weather is behind us and thoughts are turning towards summer holidays.  With this in mind it may be time to address the summer wardrobe and what to wear on one’s feet?  You don’t want to take more baggage than you have to when travelling so how about a shoe that you can wear with or without socks, can be worn with shorts and is also smart enough for evening wear?:  The Barker William loafer.Barker William navy suede and cedar.

We think that the Barker William loafer really does cut the mustard in terms of its styling, comfort and quality.  It’s a true moccasin so nice and flexible and fully repairable by any competent cobbler.  Also it’s made on the popular 465 Barker last.  The shoe is now available in five colour/leather options: cedar calf, navy suede, chocolate suede, dark navy suede and camel suede.  Therefore something to suit just about everyone, especially as it’s available in half sizes from 6 right through to 12.

We stock most of the colour options of the Barker William loafer in the Bradshaw & Lloyd shop in Hurstpierpoint so do drop by and try a pair on.  We think you will be impressed.
