Both Tricker's and Grenson are bench made to create a shoe that ensures quality, durability and style. A key technique in their production is Goodyear welting which is a complex and time-consuming ‘hands-on’ method (featuring over 200 processes over 6 – 8 weeks). This results in a shoe that is durable, long-lasting, and comfortable. Goodyear welted shoes can also be re-soled and repaired, making them a more sustainable investment than mass produced shoes made with glued soles.
In recent years, the classic leather shoe has seen a resurgence in popularity. Whether a derby, brogue or oxford, a good pair of leather shoes is a wardrobe essential, long-lasting, comfortable, and able to be dressed up or down. From the boardroom to the red carpet or out for Sunday brunch, a well-made leather shoe will elevate any outfit.
Founded in 1829 by Joseph Tricker, Tricker's is a British shoemaker committed to making high-quality shoes and boots.
Consistent with their English heritage, Tricker's shoes are made entirely from start to finish at their factory in Northampton, using methods such as Goodyear welting.
Still owned by the founding family, the brand is known for their country boots and shoes, which are waterproof and durable, and their heavy brogue shoes, which are both stylish and practical.
Worn by royalty, celebrities, and other discerning customers around the world, Tricker’s were awarded a Royal Warrant in 1989 and continue to make shoes for HM King Charles II.
To climb Mount Everest, Sir Edmond Hiliary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay had boots specially crafted by the brand and continued to commission further boots for other expeditions.
Exemplified by its long and proud history, Tricker's is a true British brand.
Founded in 1866 by William Green, Grenson, was one of the first shoemakers to use the Goodyear Welted method; taking up to 8 weeks to make a pair of Grenson shoes and is considered one of the most durable and water-resistant methods of shoemaking.
In 1874 Grenson moved to its first factory. The company quickly grew and prospered, and its shoes became known for their quality and craftsmanship.
As evidence of their quality and durability, Grenson shoes were worn by British soldiers in World War I and World War II.
In 2008, the company was acquired by Tim Little, an English shoe designer. Little opened new stores, launched new collections, and partnered with high-profile designers.
Known for its high-quality shoes, Grenson is one of the leading shoemakers in the UK.
