Since their inception in 1829, the Tricker’s name has been famous around the world for its attachment with quality footwear. Handmade in England by master craftsman, their approach is to use the finest materials to create traditional footwear lasting a lifetime. Founded by Joseph Barltrop over 180 years ago in Northampton, a place renowned when it comes to formal footwear with both Crockett & Jones and Sanders operating from the East Midlands town. Still in the Barltrop family all these years later, the dedication to excellence is as unwavering now as it was almost two centuries ago.

Why Us?

A good customer and subsequently good friend of John’s once said, “I can no longer afford to buy cheap shoes”


Along with a small range of our own commissioned shoes, socks, belts and small leather goods. We are going to develop our own shoe range further, more accessories such as soft caps, umbrellas and our own shoe care products.

We offer the finest repair service for quality shoes, whereby we can return to the factory in which they were made, striped down and repaired like new (better than new in our opinion) on the original last (the specific wooden shoe shape that the shoe was made upon) and put through production. We can also repair virtually any shoe or leather item in-house with our repair man and the turnaround time is significantly shorter than returning to factory.
