Barbour the Brand
Iconic and authentic, Barbour thrives on the unique values of the British countryside. Quality, durability and fitness for purpose have been the guiding principles for more than 100 years. The result is stylish, functional clothing that performs in any environment.
Barbour Footwear established 1920
And now, Barbour continues this same philosophy into its new footwear collection. Barbour first started making footwear in the early 1920s, with a focus on using the ‘finest materials’ and ‘the best workmanship’. The collection was sold by mail order and included the ‘Field Boot’, a work boot that was popular in Canada and South Africa for service wear, and the sleeker ‘Lonsdale Boot’, designed ‘For Officer and Country Gentlemen’. This variety and fitness for purpose legacy has been carried forward to the debut SS13 collection; from smart soft suede brogues to casual canvas sneakers in signature wax cotton, the Spring Summer shoe line-up comprises fifteen styles and is both broad and versatile.
Spring Summer 13 collection
The collection demonstrates Barbour’s technical skill in choosing the best materials. Lighter and more colourful styles offer a fit for purpose summer composition, whilst the recognisable Barbour emblems of waterproof wax cotton, traditional tartan linings and the signature Beacon logo that has been around since the brand’s origins are still celebrated and referenced. Shoes are relaxed and casual, designed to complement and enhance Barbour’s clothing and accessories collections. Made to the same exacting standards and quality as Barbour’s renowned outerwear, the footwear collection is synonymous with the Barbour lifestyle.
