*Neuwertig – BARKER “Anniversary Collection” Cap-Toe Oxford Brogue: 46-46.5D
Cap-Toe Oxford Brogue
A venerable 19th century firm, producing very high quality channeled Goodyear welted shoes with interesting variations on traditional designs; notice the unusual squared vamp on the present shoe, not seen elsewhere. This is their signature shoe shown in the Barker website: http://www.barkerblack.com/history/ Barker’s “Haraboro” Cap Toe Oxford, from their standard line, now sells on -line for $875. The Anniversary Collection, when it was still available sold for something north of $1000. Black shoes, identified by their brass nailed “B” or skull and crossbones in the instep are all closed channel Goodyear welted, as with all bespoke shoes.
Size Details:11.5E UK……12-12.5D US…….46-46.5D Continental, for the medium width foot.
Superb: Bottoms show wear consistant with less than a few wearings. Tops showing only trivial creasing, again, consistant with 3 or 4 wearings. Thus, an almost new example of a fine shoe.
