Barker’s New Brogues

Barker shoes

Sometimes to break the norm, you don’t actually need to create something new but just refresh the details. That is precisely what Barker has done with their new full brogue, set for S/S2016 release. It would appear that they created a new medallion which I say is quite interesting. And on top of that, for their brogueing punches instead of your common round hole shape, they used star shaped punches. But the shoe itself is still very British. Let’s see if the star shaped brogueing will affect or enhance the sales of the classic full brogue. As a detail not easily noticed I presume that it might not affect it at all but you never know.

The red one on the right has my thumbs up!!

    En…My worry is that Barker doesn’t always have the best leather…
