The Heart of Northampton


Our factory in the heart of the shoemaking quarter in Northampton town remains one of the last standing shoe factories around. We are based over three floors and our shoes are made entirely in the factory by skilled craftsmen and women of all ages and backgrounds.

Working at Tricker’s you are creating shoes iconic in the fashion world, crafting the perfect example of Northampton shoes and inspiring the future of shoemaking.

Stephen Bennett

“I joined the shoemaking industry when I left school, I have worked for several of Northampton's shoemakers and recently joined Tricker's. In a week, I stitch over 200 pairs of shoes and have an extensive knowledge of stitching machines however I am known at Tricker’s as ‘Utility Worker’ because I have worked in all the departments, I can turn my hand to any machine if required.

Everyone here puts their hearts into making the shoes and boots. Management are good teachers and they listen. They are interested in looking after the staff.

In my short time at Tricker’s I have been lucky to be chosen to take part in two great events. The most important was meeting HRH Prince Charles during his visit to our factory. I was also included in the recent Made in Britain BBC TV series.”


“I joined Tricker’s as an apprentice in 2016. Having developed my skills under wing of the master shoemaker I have now successfully completed my apprenticeship and am progressing within the bespoke shoe department. My role is interesting and diverse and I enjoy being able to craft each day.

Tricker’s fine heritage, authenticity and craftsmanship are some of the reasons why I came here. Tricker’s is also the only Northampton-based shoemaker to have a fully functioning in-house bespoke shoemaking department. Every part of the process is made here under one roof.”
