Padmore & Barnes’ New Collaboration Has Plenty to ‘Feature’Release: 28 April 2022
US boutique Feature are adding to their collaborative catalogue with an expansive collection in partnership with Irish heritage moccasin brand Padmore & Barnes. This six pair pack features high and low cuts of their signature P404 and P204 crepe shoes, and each edition is truly a sight to behold.
Padmore & Barnes may be a little obscure for the uninitiated, so here’s a quick intro. They’ve been making footwear since 1934, and were also the original manufacturers of the Clarks Wallabee – that’s why the featured models here bear such resemblance. The brand has developed a strong following in the years since, while simultaneously adding new fans via key colabs with partners including Supreme, Hanon, and now Feature.
Unlike some of P&B’s previous sleeper hits, Feature go all out on these pairs with an audacious combo of velour suede and pony hair in clashing colours of green, orange, brown, blue, and grey. Some of the pony hair panels even have faux cheetah spots printed all over them for the full effect. The toe boxes of each pair have ‘Feature’ chain stitched like a fancy bathrobe and makes for a classy finishing touch. Of course, this all sits atop chunky slabs of plantation rubber crepe, making for a naturally cushioned ride.
Raffles for the Feature x Padmore & Barnes P404 and P204 collaboration are open now exclusively via Feature, and entries close on April 28 at 4PM PST.
