Why choose Trickers?


By appointment to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. For 175 years R.E. Tricker shoes have been handmade in Northampton. The year 1829 was when master shoemaker Joseph Tricker Founded the Company.


One of the longest established shoemakers in England, RE Tricker Limited has a reputation for outstanding manufacturing quality, established Tricker's as the maker of choice for heavy country boots and shoes to farm and estate owners and the landed gentry.


Now in 2019, living, walking heritage. Built to the same exacting standards that established Tricker’s reputation, the Tricker’s country boot today is a direct descendant of the boot Walter James Barltrop created at the tender age of 7. Today Tricker's boots and shoes are known for their exacting quality, incomparable comfort, individuality and irreproachable character.


If you’ve owned a pair of Trickers, you’ll be familiar with the feeling of heft that comes with a beautifully handcrafted shoe – a you can sense the famous process of ‘clicking’, ‘closing’, ‘making’ and ‘finishing’ that goes into each individual pair. These are shoes to last. From time to time you’ll have them re-soled, or re-heeled, but the upper will remain, weathering and creasing to provide a personalised, comfortable companion for life.
