Comme des Garçons
In 2019 and 2020, Padmore & Barnes collaborated with renowned Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons, with headquarters in Paris and Tokyo. Most recently, we produced an ankle-high panelled suede boot in tones of green with a round toe.
This collaboration brought together a tonal lace-up closure, hand stitched blanket stitching at welt and plantation crepe rubber sole in black. We have collaborated with Comme des Garçons on four occasions in the past two years.

2020 saw Padmore & Barnes collaborate with street-wear label HANON. Regarded by the international community for top quality footwear collaborations, our recent collaboration saw a special edition of the Original Padmore & Barnes with two make-ups of the Higgins silhouette – a lesser known shoe that was originally designed in 1978.
Each shoe was hand stitched and crafted with No.1 plantation crepe (Beige colourway only) and the finest Italian velour suedes to the highest standards, evoking the spirit of traditional manufacturing that continues to endure throughout the ages, with just 48 pairs created.
2020 started with a collaboration with world renowned Fred Perry to adapt our legendary suede Willow shoe. Fred Perry is a name synonymous with high-quality products and we were proud to collaborate with their team earlier this year.
The link up saw Padmore & Barnes deliver our Willow shoe from super velour Italian suede, with double-stitch detail and plantation crepe soles. These stunning shoes were then finished with a Laurel Wreath pull tab at the heel.

Searching for an exclusive collection of footwear, Commonwealth, with a decade under their belt as an award winning specialty boutique, joined with Padmore & Barnes for a collaboration in 2017.
This collaboration focussed on Padmore & Barnes classic P204 (Wallabee), P500 (Plain Toe) and P700 (Willow Boot). Each was hand-stitched using only genuine plantation crepe for soling and the finest leathers to ensure that the Padmore & Barnes tradition continues.
For our 2016 collaboration with Footpatrol, who specialise in limited edition offering to its customers, the focus was to look back to one of hip hop’s golden eras to engineer the split coloured Original Boot P404, based on the cover for one of the 90’s most iconic albums: Ghostface Killah’s debut solo album, Ironman.
The album cover has been reworked on Padmore & Barnes Original Boot P404. Two colourways were designed and produced: red/black and yellow/black, featuring contrast stitching and a smooth tan leather inner lining. The P404 has a suede build with smooth tan leather lining, with dual Padmore & Barnes and Footpatrol branded footbeds.
In 2016, Padmore & Barnes teamed up with Stussy for an exclusive collaboration; the result was a reimagined Padmore & Barnes hand stitched P405 moccasin, in two new colorways.
The limited edition run was available in black and navy or beige and olive. For this collaboration, each model sported a soft suede construction, with supple leather accents, Stussy’s signature “Double S” moniker at each lateral heel and a crepe sole.
YMC clothing and footwear are renowned for having minute detail, an emphasis on texture, colour and print and a strong creative spirit. YMC’s collaboration with Padmore & Barnes in 2016 was no different.
Using the finest leathers, we created a stunning one-piece leather boot. The limited edition run used black leather with a plantation crepe rubber sole to finish the popular collaboration.
The Natalie boot had been a firm Oi Polloi favourite for years, so Padmore & Barnes were delighted to exclusively collaborate to bring it back to the market.
This collaboration brought this toe-piece product back in shoe or boot form (in black or brown) as part of the six style capsule collection with crepe soled leather/suede boxes.
