Do these look like full grain or corrected grain shoes?

    Normally, if a shoe is full grain it will be advertised, it denotes quality.

    I am not familiar with Barneys or the quality of their shoes. Having said that, at $400 full retail one could expect full grain, but not top notch. My suggestion is that you write to their customer service @ [email protected] and enquire about the type of leather these shoes are made of. Have a good one.

    Those look like full grain to me. It's hard to know for sure about those, but a lot of Barneys house brand shoes are made by Calzoleria Harris. Judging from what I can see of the stitching on the sole I would guess they are Blake stitched and are probably a pretty decent value at the sale price.
