I don't like the skulls on the toe medallions or sole waist. I don't like skulls of any kind on my clothing and for this reason I would never buy a pair of Barker Blacks at any price. Last time I checked, the skull is still a symbol of death and why any company would use the death head as their logo can only lead me to conclude that there are avid devil worshippers in the world that want to identify with one another. Does this mean that someone who owns a pair of Barker Blacks is a devil worshipper or occult member of sorts? I don't know, you tell me. Maybe a poll? At the very least the use of the skull is rather tacky and childish looking. I wouldn't be suprised if those opposed to my views will run out and buy a pair just to spite me, but that's fine.
It is a bizarre logo. What pirate stuff has to do with shoes I don't know. Do you need to wear a parrot with them?
