A Closer Look at the Tricker’s X Knutsford Collaboration

Tricker’s is a brand that requires little introduction for footwear aficionados. Since 1829, the brand has handcrafted some of Britain’s finest shoes and boots from its homestead in Northampton, England. Since its earliest days, Tricker’s has sternly placed its focus on premium quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship, building a reputation among the country’s most prestigious shoemakers. The company has since been honoured with the Royal Warrant from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and has been a supplier to his household now for over 25 years.

This season Tricker’s has teamed up with Cheshire-based clothing brand Knutsford to produce an exclusive collection of footwear inspired by Britain’s long shoemaking heritage and traditional working footwear. You can discover the collection online now at AllSole.

The Stephy

A signature example of the traditional Tricker’s country boot, the Stephy is reimagined with a soft acorn leather upper sewn directly onto a British-made brown Dainite sole with a flat welt. Each shoe in the Tricker’s X Knutsford collection features an exclusive blue lining stamped with the gold-foil collaboration branding to the sole.

The Monkey Boot

A silhouette perhaps best remembered for its popularity among the Mods in the ‘60s & ‘70s, the Tricker’s X Knutsford Monkey boot is produced in a burnished chestnut leather upper with tonal eyelets and laces. A barbour welt is sewn directly onto a British-made brown Dainite sole, and the boots are complete with the collaboration’s exclusive blue lining and an additional pair of two-tone fashion laces.

The Bourton

A standout silhouette from the Tricker’s archive, the Bourton brogue Derby shoe ranks among the brand’s best-loved styles. This new iteration of the brogue features supple visone suede uppers with brass eyelets and tonal brown laces. A natural welt secures the upper to a brown double Dainite sole and the shoe is finished with the gold-foil Tricker’s X Knutsford branding stamped to the sole.

The Scott

A new addition to the Tricker’s collection, the Scott was created as a toe-cap Derby boot with twist, withthe boot typically coming unlined. The Knutsford edition of the boot has been handcrafted with new brown Castorino suede uppers set on the new Tricker’s leather Ultra Flex summer sole. Unlike other iterations of the Scott boot currently in the Tricker’s range, this version is lined in our signature blue lining and comes complete with a combination of brass eyelets and lace hooks.
