Tricker's opens first store outside UK

Northampton footwear brand Tricker’s has opened its first standalone store outside of the UK, as it celebrates its 190th anniversary as one of Britain’s oldest shoemakers. 

The 1,000 sq ft store is located in the Aoyama district of Tokyo and is an exact replica of its store at 67 Jermyn Street in London. 

The new store will feature all the classic Tricker’s styles from its “Country and Town” collections, as well as a new sandal collection, which has been specially created due to demand and to cater for the hot Japanese summers.

Martin Mason, managing director of Tricker’s, said: “Tricker’s has been exporting to Japan for over 30 years now and has a great following, so it only seemed fitting to open a store there in our 190th Anniversary Year.

”The Japanese consumer recognise that Northamptonshire Shoemakers are some of the best in the world and they associate us with making luxury Goodyear Welted Shoes.”

Joseph Tricker founded Tricker’s in 1829. Its current factory, located at 56-60 St Michael’s Road, Northampton, first opened its doors in 1904.

The Prince of Wales visited the factory on 28 January to unveil the brand’s 190th anniversary commemorative plaque.
