The Timeless Craftsmanship of Tricker’s Footwear

Pair of Trickers Country Shoes Colour Marron

Tricker’s is a British heritage footwear brand that has been producing high-quality shoes for over 190 years. Founded in 1829, the company has a rich history and has become synonymous with traditional British style.

Tricker’s began as a shoemaker for the farming community in Northamptonshire, England, but soon expanded to produce shoes for the growing urban population in the 19th century. In the early years, the company specialized in producing heavy, durable boots for farmers and laborers. However, as the company grew, it began to produce more refined footwear for the emerging middle class.

The brand’s reputation for quality and craftsmanship grew throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Tricker’s shoes became the go-to footwear for the British military, and the company was awarded a Royal Warrant by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1989.

Today, Tricker’s remains one of the few British shoemakers that still produces all of its shoes in England. The brand’s commitment to traditional craftsmanship and quality is evident in every pair of shoes it produces.

Tricker’s footwear is renowned for its durability and comfort, thanks to its Goodyear-welted construction, which involves stitching the upper, sole, and welt together. This method allows the shoe to be easily resoled and repaired, giving it a longer lifespan than other types of footwear.

The brand’s signature style is the brogue, a type of shoe that features decorative perforations and serrations along the edges of the leather. Tricker’s brogues are considered some of the best in the world, and the brand offers a wide range of styles, from classic wingtip brogues to more modern takes on the traditional design.

In addition to its classic brogues, Tricker’s also offers a range of other styles, including boots, loafers, and sneakers. The brand’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship is evident in every pair of shoes it produces, making Tricker’s a go-to brand for anyone looking for traditional British style and quality.
