The shoe bends naturally, along with the ball of the foot, thanks to the soft leather forepart insole and the slashed outer sole.

The shoe achieves a highly personal footbed, actually taking on the shape of your foot because the upper leather rests on cork.

Caring for your Barker Shoes

Your Barker shoes will give you long and faithful service providing you follow these simple rules.

  1.  Always clean regularly with a brush or damp cloth to remove all traces of dirt before applying a good quality
    shoe cream or polish of the correct colour. (Barker shoe care kits contain all the necessary equipment in neat travel cases.
  2. Never dry wet shoes near fire, radiators or hot pipes. Good leather deserves good treatment and slow natural drying is
    always best.
  3. To keep shoes in perfect shape we recommend the use of  barker shoe trees and a shoe horn.
    Suede Shoes – remove all dirt when dry and brush up the nap using a stiff bristle suede brush. Stains can be removed
    with a suede solvent cleaner and smooth patches restored with fine sandpaper.

Kid Leather Shoes – or other lightweight leathers should be polished with a good neutral or coloured shoe cream.
Nubuck Leather Shoes – wipe clean with a cloth dipped in slightly soapy warm water.
Patent Leather Shoes – clean with a damp cloth or use a recommended patent leather spray or cream.
Calf Aniline Shoes – to develop a rich and lasting guardsman’s finish polish regularly with a quality polish of matching colour, this will maintain the aniline dye finish of the superior Calf skins used by Barkers.

Barker Shoe Construction

Goodyear Welt

A traditional method of manufacturing which provides a shoe that will give comfort, excellent shape retention, water-resistance and repairable properties.

  • Excellent insulation against cold and heat
  • Good shape retention
  • Easy to repair

 

Barker Welt

Barkerwelt is a special Barker version of the welted construction. By adjusting the ‘lasting’ and ‘making’ process, the sole is cemented and not stitched. This allows for a closer sole edge and a lighter sole giving finer looking, more flexible sole – whilst still retaining the advantages of welted shoes.

  • Extra flexibility
  • Fine appearance

 

Cemented

A construction using specialised adhesives in place of stitched welts to bond the upper parts and soles, thus achieving lightness and flexibility.

  • Lightweight shoe
  • Flexible
