FEATURE x Padmore & Barnes
For almost 100 years, the heritage shoe manufacturer label Padmore & Barnes has consistently created handcrafted footwear that makes a statement against the traditional footwear offerings. These signature moccasin-inspired low tops, boots, and other silhouettes helped establish Padmore & Barnes in their early beginnings in Kilkenny, Ireland. The brand employed people in the nearby communities of Kilkenny as they stitched the shoes themselves in their homes. Padmore & Barnes is also widely recognized for their help in creating the iconic Clark’s Wallabee silhouette while the brand was under the ownership of C&J Clark. In 1987, Padmore & Barnes went on its own to trade independently and spread its production outside of Ireland to other parts of Europe, such as Poland. With their changes, the shoe manufacturer is still committed to European manufacturing by the local craftspeople.
We have joined alongside Padmore & Barnes in releasing a selection of six styles of the P204 Original Low Top + P404 Original Boot silhouettes. Each footwear offering combines the highest quality detailing of Padmore 7 Barnes with the ‘All Things Good’ mantra of FEATURE.
Presented in U.S. Men’s sizing ranging from sizes 8 through 13, the FEATURE x Padmore & Barnes P404 Original Boot is featured in three colorways: Green/Green, Animal/Brown, and Green/Brown, while the FEATURE x Padmore & Barnes P204 Original Low Top is seen in Black/Brown, Animal/Purple, and Animal/Grey/Navy. The FEATURE x Padmore & Barnes collaboration takes a unique take on the shoe manufacturers' classic low top and boot silhouettes, as premium super velour suede resides within the distinguishing upper. Pony hair material is blended seamlessly within the overlays, making an additional bold statement. Within the double hand-stitched seams is suede detailing. The moccasin-like designs spotlight embroidered FEATURE script branding at the left toe boxes, while different printed Padmore & Barnes branding resides within the left silhouette’s leather insole. Printed FEATURE academy branding is seen within the right silhouette’s leather insole. The genuine plantation crepe underneath references the rich history of Padmore & Barnes, all while offering optimal durability and longevity. Explore the images below for a detailed look.
