Tricker’s awarded Royal Warrant to H.M. King Charles III

Northampton shoemakers Tricker’s are amongst the first businesses within the United Kingdom to be awarded the Royal Warrant to H.M. King Charles III. This accolade comes at a wonderful time for the business (established 1829) who celebrate their 195th anniversary in 2024.

The Royal Warrant is awarded as shoe manufacturers, and it is with great pride that to this day Tricker’s continue to make shoes for His Majesty.

Martin Mason the Managing Director of R E Tricker Ltd, who has been appointed as grantee for the Royal Warrant, said:  

“Being granted a Royal Warrant is a great privilege for everyone associated with Tricker’s . The factory now has a long association with the Royal Family, and it is a source of great pride that we have become shoe manufacturers by appointment to His Majesty the King .

To hold a Royal Warrant is a huge honour and I know how pleased and proud our customers and everyone here at Tricker’s in Northampton will be when they hear the news of this award.”

Tricker’s are one of the oldest shoemakers in the United Kingdom and are still independently owned. Every pair of Tricker’s boots and shoes is made 100% from start to finish in their Northampton factory, with the business employing 89 highly skilled local craftspeople. Each pair of Trickers is made using 265 individual processes over 12 weeks. Goodyear welting is a key part of that process, ensuring that a pair of Tricker’s will last a lifetime thanks to the ability to continually repair and restore them.

Tricker’s were originally awarded a Royal Warrant in 1989 for HRH The Prince of Wales. A Royal Warrant is a recognition to people and companies who have supplied regular goods to the specific members of the British Royal Family.

In 2019, HRH Prince Charles visited the Tricker’s factory in Northampton. He toured the factory and met with the craftspeople working on the factory floor. HRH also visited the bespoke shoe room where his Tricker’s shoes are made.
