There can be few amongst you who don’t recognise the name Trickers. They’ve been cutting, sewing and binding for 180 years up in the UK’s footwear utopia of Northampton. If you’ve owned a pair of Trickers, you’ll be familiar with the feeling of heft that comes with a beautifully handcrafted shoe – a you can sense the famous process of ‘clicking’, ‘closing’, ‘making’ and ‘finishing’ that goes into each individual pair. These are shoes to last. From time to time you’ll have them re-soled, or re-heeled, but the upper will remain, weathering and creasing to provide a personalised, comfortable companion for life. Here at Alpha Shadows, we are proud to bring you our unique collaboration with this most revered brand.
