R.E. Tricker Ltd, which trades as Tricker's, is a British company. The company was established in 1829 by Joseph Tricker and is based in Northampton in the United Kingdom.[1]

Tricker's produces men's and women's shoes and boots, as well as leather accessories such as belts and wallets.[1] It is best known for its heavy country boots and shoes,[2] and was one of several Northampton-based companies identified as having survived the downturn in British shoemaking between the 1970s and 2000s and "carved out a niche for themselves at the top end of the international shoe market" by The Telegraph in 2012.[3] The company was granted a royal warrant in 1989.[4][5] Tricker's factory in Northampton is a Grade II listed building.[6]

As of 2019, Tricker's operated several stores in the UK as well as a single store in Tokyo. A BBC story reported that 80 percent of the company's sales were overseas, and it was considering opening other stores in South Korea and the United States.[4]
