Barker Shoes

Barker Shoes have always understood the power of good design, fashion and culture. The company has only employed me for 18 months and in that short time not only have they supported me in my work as a maintenance engineer they’re also encouraged me as a sculptor and artist, taking every opportunity to promote and exhibit my work in their shop or grounds of the factory. It’s impossible not to be inspired when your surrounded by a  dedicated and enthusiastic workforce and knowing that they make some of the best shoes in the world
