One of the greatest names in shoemaking, Tricker’s have been producing the finest bespoke footwear since 1829, with every pair handmade in their Northampton factory, using only the finest leathers, utilising time-honoured manufacturing techniques passed down over 5 generations. To put the brand’s longevity into perspective, 1829 was the year the uniformed police force was established by Sir Robert Peel and Abraham Lincoln gave his first political speech. Despite their years, the majority of production techniques remain, helping to reinforce the reputation Tricker’s has garnered over the years as true leaders in the art of shoe manufacture.
We’re very pleased to be able to continue working on our highly limited collaboration series with Tricker’s. Developing on from our previous styles, the fourth instalment is a re-working of the classic long wing brogue, perfect for the warmer months. Available in four, Summer-inspired colours, the shoe is based on the highly lauded ‘Richard’ silhouette, built on a 4497 last with the whole look and foot-feel of the shoe lightened in comparison to our previous designs, with the use of a crepe sole and Repello suede uppers. Repello is so named due to its shower proof properties, with the suede having been given a Scotchguard treatment, which makes it ideal for the inclement British summer. The End Hunting Co. Design Team have added metal eyelets, two-tone rolled ‘outdoor’ laces and a natural canvas pull tab on the heel – subtle details that help add a distinguished touch to this Tricker’s classic. As always the shoes are finished with a dual branded stamp on a natural leather insole. The result is a lightweight, durable long wing, perfect for the Great British Summer and years beyond.
