The plain toe Derby is a Country classic with the Barker Nairn and Skye Goodyear welted styles being highly recommended. The Nairn is one of Barker’s longest running styles in the current collection, made on the 29 last last from premium calf and grain leather on a British Dainite rubber sole. The Skye is similar to Nairn in style but made on the 464 last for a slimmer fit. The Search for a Barker Derby brogue would lead you to the Kelmarsh, a timeless full brogue made on the 460 last from grain leather on a Dainite rubber sole.
Although the Barker Professional collection features an extensive range of Oxford shoes there are several men’s formal Derby shoes including the Darlington, Lyle, Morden and St Austell styles. For Professional Derby brogues the Larry and Woodbridge styles are highly recommended.
The Creative collection includes the Antony, Bailey, Haig, Hawk, Jackson and Woody Goodyear welted styles which are made from a variety of leathers including unfinished crust leather that is painted by hand at the Earls Barton factory.
The Barker Of Earls Barton Archive collection was introduced as part of Barker’s 140th anniversary and includes several Derby styles inspired by archival shoe designs reinterpreted for the modern day. The Berry, Milbury and Wilson Derby shoes have been made in seasonal suedes for Spring / Summer 2021 on a Dainite rubber sole.
