Maintaining momentum in the ever-changing world of fashion and footwear is not as easy as it may appear. While we want to add new designs and finishes, we realise the importance of staying true to Tricker’s reputation for outstanding manufacturing and quality.

 

Known as the shoemaker for quality country shoes and boots, we look for ways to reinvigorate our core styles. One way is to search for new leathers and finishes which will breathe new life into iconic ranges such as the Ripon Derby “Field” Boot

 

The Inspiration

 

The Ripon boot teems with historical references to Commando and Officers boots and actually began life in the mid-19th century at Tricker’s as a ‘field boot’, designed to wear in poor weather to protect the feet of farm labourers.

 

This Ripon boot is purposely unassuming in its design; classic clean lines with no adornment a clean seven eyelet derby ankle boot. The Ripon is typically ‘Tricker’s’ in its build: a half bellows tongue is folded and attached to the boot to provide a watertight seal, the welt provides a watertight bond between the sole and upper.


The Leather

Our latest addition to Construct is African Antelope Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus Strepsiceros) - or more commonly known as Kudu. This leather is treated with a full wax impregnation, making a feature of the natural grain blemishes.

Indigenous to a variety of African countries, they are highly praised for their meat as well as their horns and are culled regularly for export, as well as local consumption, to the benefit of local communities.

We are using Waxy Kudu leather for our Derby Field, which has been used for footwear in Africa for over two thousand years, due to its unbelievably hard-wearing qualities.

Due to their grazing habits mainly amongst thorn trees, the Kudu hide features scratches and scars. These marks give the leather its inimitable character making each pair of shoes and boots unique.

It’s now a go-to casual option and is very easy to wear in either a smart or casual context

In C F Stead Waxy Kudu, with leather uppers with a brown commando sole. The quality of these boots is outstanding, they are built to last.

Available in Noix (Yell/Tan) & Flint Waxy.

 

Sizing

The Ripon is handmade on Tricker’s 4497S last, which is also used for our iconic Stow boot. This last was created in 1937 to celebrate the coronation of King George VI. Produced by Springline - Britain’s only remaining last maker and an expert in their field - this last is true to UK size (see our size guide for international conversions). The Ripon is made to a Tricker's Width Fit 5, suitable for standard width feet. In the UK this standard width is known as an F fitting; in the USA it is known as a D fitting; in other parts of the world, it is known as an M (medium) or R (regular) fitting. As all Tricker's boots are designed to be worn with thick socks, people with slightly wider feet can usually wear our Fit 5 boots with thinner socks.

 

In Use

 

Matching the origin of the Chukka with a leather indigenous to a variety of African countries, our Kudu leather develops a rich, rugged feel while you add your own battle scars next to those naturally formed in the African bush.

 


This means that the skin must be durable to cope with such intensity which is an excellent property for Tricker’s boots. The Waxy kudu material is tough but surprisingly soft and supple and very suitable in both warm and cold climates.

 

Built to Last

As with all Tricker’s shoes and boots, each pair of Ripon boots are handmade within our Northampton factory in England by Tricker’s craftsmen and craftswomen using traditional methods, and to the same exacting standards that first established our reputation centuries ago.

There are over 260 processes used to make each pair by hand from start to finish. Every material used in the construction of these boots can be traced back to its source. Tricker’s uncompromising standards of craftsmanship, honest materials, environmentalism and sustainability are values that have been preserved and developed through five generations of the Tricker’s family-owned business.

With care and repair, these Ripon boots can last you a lifetime. We often find ourselves repairing, resoling or reheeling shoes that are more than 50 years old and we offer this service by post to anywhere in the world.
