Founded in 1829, the brand's commitment to making shoes and boots of outstanding quality remains wholeheartedly consistent. Tricker's footwear is made entirely from start to finish at their Northampton factory and, whilst manufacturing processes have changed over time, their craftsmen and women continue to follow traditional techniques.
As the longest established shoemaker in England, the year was 1829 when Joseph Tricker founded the company.
Demand of Northampton shoes became so strong that by the year 1840 there were 1,821 shoe makers in the town. Walter James Barltrop, son-in-law to Joseph Tricker, made this model boot when he was only seven years old in 1848. While simple in its execution, it pointed the way for the waterproof country shoes and boots that Tricker’s customers prize so highly today.
While the original Tricker’s country boot underwent rapid development in the early years, it quickly arrived at the classic form we are so familiar with today, it is little wonder that farmers all over England, then the whole of Britain, swore by the comfort, durability and practicality of Tricker’s waterproof country boots.The company is renowned for their heavy brogue shoes and boots, and these have been adapted for both country walking and town use, and have been extensively used for shooting.
