Barkerville, now a ghost town in the Cariboo Mountains of British Columbia, sprung up overnight in 1861 when Billy Barker exclaimed "By George, I've found it!" when finding 2,300 pounds of gold. By today's standards Billy found 18.5 million dollars worth of pure, unadulterated raw gold (just ready to be smelted into Olympic Medals). Combining style and comfort, the lace up Barkerville features patterned stitching, and leather wrapped 2.5" wedge heels in a finish reminiscent of sun bleached driftwood. Perfect for any treasured outfit, the Barkerville brings Canadian Gold right to your feet.
