Tricker's define the British art of shoemaking since nearly two centuries. Joseph Barltrop founded his manufactory in 1829. Today his great-grandson proves with classic Oxfords, Full Brogues and Chelsea boots that tradition, expertise, and flair lasts for more than just a season or two.
Tricker's brought the Goodyear welted technique to perfection: each pair requires about 250 individual working steps for craftsmen to turn exclusive calf or horse hides into comfortable footwear. Shoe frame and sole are sewn carefully to the upper leather as the ensemble is brought into shape. Thus, every shoe or boot remains ergonomically flexible yet extremely persistent. Tricker's opt for one of the most elaborate production techniques of shoemaking. Hence, their name is hallmark of quality made in Britain.
His Royal Highness Prince Charles hunts exclusively in Tricker’s boots. Tricker's accept this honour with typical British understatement.
