Men’s Boots & Shoes
Generally, our shoes are a Fit 5, this is a regular UK Standard width and therefore you can order your normal size.
We have limited styles that are a Fit 6. If a shoe or boot is a Fit 6 it will be labelled within the product details. These shoes are suitable for wider feet, however, if you have standard width feet - it doesn’t mean you can’t buy them, we just suggest you try buying 1/2 a size smaller than usual.
The last is a hard, three-dimensional form on which the shoe is constructed. Depending on the style of shoe we use different lasts, this is what dictates the overall shape, proportion, fit and character of the shoe. Many of our lasts have heritage, we've been using them for decades. The original moulds are made from wood and shaped by hand, there are then graded into the different sizes and tested rigorously to ensure the fit is consistent across the full breadth of sizes.
Our lasts will generally fit your regular size, although some vary so the information below should guide you. If you are still unsure contact us and one of our experts will be able to help.
We offer a variety of sole options. You can select your choice above, the sole types available for each shoe are featured below the size selector.
These are the most traditional sole variety - they're hard-wearing, but when they wear thin replace to ensure your shoe is kept in the best condition. Leather is a natural product and therefore porous. You can maintain it with leather conditioner.
This is a rubber sole with large studs that provide grip - whilst not so traditional, they do provide good all-round grip and durability for most surfaces.
Our original country boot sole - these take a bit of breaking in, but they provide excellent durability and grip across all terrain - particularly in the countryside.
These are light in weight and offer excellent comfort, enhanced mobility and shock absorption.
These are made from gum. A traditional sole that provides comfort and natural shock absorbency. Crepe soles are a natural product and somewhat porous. Therefore the colour can change with age.
All of our shoes and boots are Goodyear welted - this is the process we use to join the sole of your shoe to the upper. It is incredibly robust and enables your shoes to be easily repaired in the future. Welting footwear this way requires real skill. This double-stitch reinforcement makes the shoe incredibly resilient and acts as a waterproof barrier - perfect for our Country Shoes and Boots.
Named after Mr Charles Goodyear Jr, who patented the construction technique in 1871, the Goodyear Welt is the trademark of the finest quality Northampton-made footwear.
The welt, a ribbon of leather that runs around the edge of the upper, joins the insole to the upper on every pair of Tricker’s shoes and boots. Constructing a Goodyear welt involves running a lockstitch through the upper, insole and welt, whilst an entirely separate stitch is used to attach the outsole. The cavity between the welt and insole is then filled with a layer of cork that moulds to the wearer’s foot, providing insulation and comfort.
