This Italian brand, which celebrated its centenary in 2017, specializes in luxury men’s shoes, offering handmade loafers, oxfords and moccasins that are crafted using traditional techniques and time-honored expertise. Nowadays, the company’s product range includes around 80 lasts to suit any foot and about 3,500 models – which means that the customer taste and preferences are the only limitation.
How did the Barrett history begin?
In the early 20th century, the owner of London tannery John Richardson Barrett went on a trip to Italy and ordered two pairs of shoes from local artisans. After appreciating their comfort and elegance, he decided to combine his currying experience with the Italian craftsmanship.
What does Barrett have to offer besides classics?
In 1999, the company started producing sports shoes under the Blu Barrett brand. Just like all Barrett products, sneakers and lightweight rubber-soled shoes are handmade and meet the highest quality standards.
Which item is the brand’s showpiece?
The Barrett brand’s iconic model is brogues made of hand-dyed and aged deerskin featuring an ultra-durable and extremely comfortable double sole of leather and rubber.
