• Ever since its inception in 1896 in a tiny workshop under the stairs of the family home, the Barracuda brand has preserved an age-old tradition of making incredibly unique shoes with big personalities. The intuition that guides the creation of a Barracuda product is the result of an ongoing commitment to getting the small details right and to attractive design. You can't say we're not faithful to our roots. Barracuda has a bold personality which is best expressed through authentic materials and vintage style. Our shoes are carefully and lovingly put together, finished with just the right touch of master craftsmanship and imagination. Barracuda: real shoes and accessories for real people looking to express themselves to the max.
