Barkers Shoes......OR

Normally go for Barker’s shoes but Oliver Sweeney or Trickers look interesting, a bit pricey but anyone have any experience of these makes please.

It’s a little off subject but .... I bought a pair of Loakes a while back, last century. I recently sent them back and used their refurb service. All I can say is wow. The quality’s was incredible like getting a new pair back, and really cost effective. Can’t beat quality shoes.

Take a look at Churches shoes. Now they’re pricey!

All good Northants shoemakers offer quality products and refurb service.

Barkers factory outlet is worth a visit. Usually seriously good bargains to be had.

Got some Eves and Gray shoes and they are nice, plus they usually have a discount or offer on and they let you send them back and try different sizes and styles.

Not in my experience. I’ve recently replaced some Barker work shoes with some Loakes. And while they still welter leather sole construction and better than you normal high st retailer shoes, I prefer my old Barker shoes.

The Barker’s I found broke in much easier and once broken in, you didn’t know were wearing them.

The loakes on the other hand are no broken in, but seem very stiff and not as slipper like.

I got a decent discount on the Barkers, £220 ish down to about £150 ish.

When I’ve got some spare cash I will be getting a pair of shoes from Simon at the hand dyed shoe company.

Tickers Outlet store usually have some good deals

You have to sign up but don't get loads of spammy emails

https://www.trickersoutlet.com/outlet/

I've both Tickers and Loakes, the Trickers tend to be of heavier construction but both are great.
