The Barker Calder boot from Bradshaw & Lloyd

At Bradshaw and Lloyd we do like the Barker Calder seven eyelet brogue country boot. All the great English shoemakers produce a version of this classic design but when it comes to quality and style the Barker Calder just ticks all the boxes. Some other versions of similar quality such as the Trickers Stow are of equal quality but just don’t look as appealing. Made on the Barker 460 last the fit is pretty regular but allows for a thicker sock for winter outings.
Three leather options are offered in the Barker Calder: cedar calf, dark brown grain and cherry grain. We maintain stocks of the cedar and cherry in all half sizes and can source the dark brown from the factory as and when required. We also like the fact that Barker don’t play on their name to inflate their prices as some other well known brands have a tendency to do.
As you would expect the Barker Calder is traditionally Goodyear welted around its entire circumference but also has a storm welt to help repel water. Fully leather lined throughout and with a substantial leather insole these boots are not only built to last but will prove a joy to wear.
