About us

The origins of Barker Footwear can be traced back to 1933, when Ernest Barker traveled from Earls Barton, England to the shores of Cape Town, South Africa. He was accompanied by a small group of craftsmen skilled in the art of shoe making. There, in the shadow of Table Mountain, he established Barker Footwear, a name that would become synonymous with quality and craftsmanship in footwear manufacturing.

With a long-standing history in the profession, Barker has earned a reputation of excellence in footwear manufacturing. From the careful selection of materials, to the fine finishing detail, Barker Footwear sets the standard of style and comfort for discerning men and women.
