Among some circles, owning a pair of suede shoes or boots gives you an air of sophistication or decadence. In all likelihood, this relates to the added care and attention they require over their leather counterparts.
Obviously, all footwear deserves a good level of maintenance, which the dedicated shoe lover is not shy of bestowing, especially upon their treasured Tricker’s. Continue reading “SS18 Flexi Welt Suede Footwear Collection for Men”

For SS18, we have given our iconic Bourton brogue for men, Ava Penny Loafer and Anne brogue for women a new and lighter look.
For decades, the men’s heavy country brogue has been our best-seller. Wanting to keep this style fresh, we have launched the Bourton in Funchal burnished leather. The shoe is then finished on a lighter weight Vibram Gumlite coloured sole.
The ladies collection is finished on the classic leather sole. Continue reading “SS18 Funchal Leather Collection for Men and Women”
Following the success of A/W 2017’s Kudu full grain leather shoe and boot collection for men, Tricker’s has introduced a Kudu Reverse suede range for S/S 2018.

However, for many decades we have designed an array of different styles to suit all seasons and weathers.
While exploring our archives, we recently rediscovered a summer rambler shoe. Evoking a wholesome atmosphere of camping, hiking and outdoor picnics, this particular range was a best-seller in the 1950s and 60s.
Reissued in the late 70s and early 80s, the style eventually disappeared, until now. Continue reading “SS18 Rambler Shoe and Boot Collection for Men”
In a previous Journal post we talk about the importance of maintaining momentum in the ever-changing world of fashion and footwear.
While we want to add new designs and finishes, we realise the importance of staying true to the Tricker’s reputation for outstanding manufacturing and quality.
Known as the shoemaker for quality country shoes and boots, we look for ways to update our core styles. One route is to search for unique leathers or different finishes which will breathe new life into iconic ranges.
For SS18, we have done just that by using Bookbinder for three classic styles from our men’s and women’s range. Continue reading “Bookbinder SS18 Collection for Men and Women”
