Barkal is a fashion label that introduces a contemporary line of unisex, premium Italian leather footwear that fuses a timeless silhouette with a modern aesthetic.
This ultimate everyday shoe is inspired by traditional footwear, named "Markoub," that traces its origins back to Sudan. The team behind the brand worked to bridge the gap between history and modernity, to create a contemporary yet classic, progressive yet traditional product. Hours of design refinements to the form and fit allowed the team to produce a shoe that offers uncompromising comfort with style and finesse.
Made with soft, natural-grain Nappa leather from one of the finest tanneries in the Tuscany region of central Italy, the collection reflects traditional craftsmanship, reintroducing artisan styling and detailing. Each shoe is carefully constructed in a long-established family-owned factory using only the highest quality Italian leathers and materials. The relaxed square toe provides unparalleled comfort and flexibility, and the high-grade leather sole offers steady and effortless movement. Offered in both a narrow and wide fit, each shoe is designed to mould to the curves of one’s foot.
Classic meets modern perfection. Your new wardrobe staple awaits.
