SS18 Flexi Welt Suede Footwear Collection for Men

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.

The Collection

Last year, we developed and launched a brand new ultra light flexi welt collection. Traditionally, Tricker’s is synonymous with country shoes and boots. However, we wanted to expand our ranges to include footwear more suited to wear in warmer weather.

Produced with the same characteristics of a hard-wearing welted shoe, the suede flexi welt features the following:

  • – light weight leather sole and leather insole;
  • – cork filler;
  • – unlined;
  • – special light weight reverse Castorino calf suede.

This deconstructed flexi shoe is thirty percent lighter than our standard country footwear. However, it remains as durable and solid as you would expect from shoes and boots produced by England’s oldest shoe maker.

Delighted with the response to the new range, we have added Robert and Elton to the growing collection for SS18.

Already a firm favourite among Tricker’s customers, Robert has been given a make-over for this new season.

Castorino Suede

The suede we use for our SS18 flexi welt collection is Castorino. It is a full reverse suede. A lot of shoemakers use split suede. This relates to the skin left after removing the full grain leather.

Reverse suede is better quality and also known as full grain suede. The full grain leather and skin of a hide is left intact. The flesh side is the suede.

Castorino is extremely light in weight and features a very fine nap.

How to care for your Castorino suede footwear:

  • – For Mud Stains: use a wire suede brush when the mud is dry.
  • – For other stains: Scotch Brite is very good at removing most stains, but excessive cleaning may cause permanent damage.
  • – Castorino suede has a very soft nap. Watch our videos to see how to brush and care for suede.
  • – Use the correct type of soft shoe brush.
  • – Keep your footwear in their shoe bags to prevent damage.
  •  -Use shoe trees to help maintain shape.
