About Tricker's

Established in 1829, Britain's oldest shoemaker.

Founded in 1829, Tricker’s is proudly the oldest established shoemaker in Britain. Still owned by the founding family, our commitment to making shoes and boots of outstanding quality remains wholeheartedly consistent.

Tricker’s footwear is made entirely from start to finish at our Northampton factory and, whilst manufacturing processes have changed over time, our craftspeople continue to follow the traditional techniques

R. E. Tricker Limited was founded in 1829by Joseph Tricker.

Joseph Tricker’s uncompromising standardsof craftsmanship and use of honest materialsselected for durability and strength, are values thathave been preserved and developed through fivegenerations and are observed as resolutely todayas they were in 1829.

Our Factory

The Tricker's factory stands in the heart of Northampton's famous shoemaking district. Where many have fallen, we remain quietly creating the world's finest country footwear behind the fortress like facade. We operate in a similar way to how we always have done, of course technology and machinery play a part today but we still champion 'handmade' and the skill of our craftspeople who breathe life through every floor of the factory.

Our People

Every pair of Tricker's spends 8 weeks in our factory, starting life as a hide and some thread. Some 260 processes later under the guidance of our craftspeople and what has emerged are a pair of fine country shoes or boots ready for a lifetime of wear.

Without the skill, passion and dedication of each and every person who works at Tricker's, this would simply not be possible

Our Shoes

A pair of Tricker's represent British craftsmanship at its absolute best. Every shoe and boot we make is an example of quality, authenticity and durability. Tricker's are made to last, made to be worn and loved as they mould to your feet and age over time.

Over the centuries Tricker's have been worn around the world by royalty, celebrities, designers, entrepreneurs and everyone in between, bridging cultural boundaries Joseph could not have imagine in his wildest dreams.

Our Warrant

We are extremely proud of our Royal Warrant currently to HRH The Prince of Wales awarded in 1989. To this day we still make shoes for HM King Charles II.

As part of our 190th Anniversary celebrations we were extremely privileged to welcome the now king to our factory for a tour where he met our team.
