After several years of making MTO shoes via mail order, Barbanera has finally hit the big time and opened up their first online shop with an extensive Ready to Wear stock offering. Therefore, you no longer need to wait a few months to get a pair of Barbanera shoes, that is of course, you still want to participate in the MTO offering. I am very happy for them too as I have been telling them for years that they needed to do this in order to get their shoes on more people’s feet and thus grown their name. Because the truth is, whether or not you like their designs, they make a great and well made product. I have the Kerouac boots and I love them. Not only are they extremely comfortable but also built to last. If you like a solid boot for wearing with denim, that’s the one. And I must say that I have not seen many loafers cooler than the Hemingway in Black suede. One of the owners of the brand, Sebastiano, always makes it look great underneath his navy suits.
So if you have always been intrigued by the Barbanera offering, now is your chance to snag a pair up in a relatively seamless way.
