London Super Trunk 2017 - Brand Showcase #1 - Barbanera

The Barbanera brand was launched around 4 years ago by two Italian pairs of brothers coming from a very diverse background, from Rock ‘n Roll singer, to marketing extraordinaire, to business owner who has created products we use in everyday life. The brand was created to make classic shoes with a twist but that is only a fraction of the sentiment behind the brands essence which you might be able to see in the pictures in this post.

Barbanera’s shoes are manufactured in Tuscany in a factory specializing mainly in Goodyear welted shoes but also more recently in blake stitched shoes as well for their more diverse offering of boots/summer loafers etc. They use leather from some of the finest Italian tanneries, and the shoes are made with closed channel stitching and with a slight bevelled waist. Their RTW range starts around 430/€500, and at a small upcharge you can have personalized Made to Order shoes created for you.

The style of Barbanera’s shoes is quite special, like a mix between old school 20’s styles, motorcycle boots, rock n’ roll and western style boots. A lot of suede and a lot of two tone shoes. Like many Italian brands, they manage to make really comfortable shoes, even if they are in most cases Goodyear welted. I have a pair of the Kerouac boot and they are amazingly comfortable.

So if you have yet to see their shoes in person, this is just yet one reason to come to the London Super Trunk Show on May 13th at the Music Room in Mayfair.
