The son of Walter Barltrop, born in 1869, Ernest was incredibly involved in the evolving design of our footwear. He devoted his life to making the name “Tricker’s” stand for the highest quality shoes and boots.
History of Tricker's
Our belief in the importance of export is why Tricker’s is honoured to be part of the UK Government’s Department for International Trade GREAT Britain campaign - promoting British culture abroad and flying the flag for the Northampton shoe industry.
During World War II, Jermyn street was damaged by a Luftwaffe parachute mine, and several of the buildings around the Tricker’s Jermyn Street store suffered severe damage, with some being destroyed. Our store thankfully survived the explosion.
Tricker's was founded by Joseph Tricker, who aged nineteen was already a master shoemaker and set up his handmade shoe company.
Tricker’s has held a Royal Warrant with HRH The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles for over 30 years, since 1989.
