Barker shoes have been an English tradition for over 135 years. Only the most carefully selected leathers are used and the uppers are shaped on the last by hand. Many other traditional shoemaking methods are still employed including slow natural drying and polishing. This is why Barker English shoes have a unique quality that no machine can ever match.
Barker have been making shoes in the Northamptonshire village of Earls Barton since 1880. In a changing world, it’s good to know you can still find perfection if you look for it. One thing for sure, it is craftsmen and fine materials that makes good shoes. At Barkers, there is no shortage of either. Their craftspeople produce some 200,000 pairs of hand lasted sewn shoes each year.
