Burberry, the iconic British luxury fashion house, has recently announced a partnership with Tricker’s, England’s longest-established shoemaker, to create a line of traditionally crafted footwear for their Winter 2023 collection. This collaboration is a testament to Burberry’s commitment to British craftsmanship and heritage, a focus that has been amplified since Daniel Lee took over creative control.
Tricker’s, founded in 1829, is renowned for its exceptional quality and attention to detail. Every pair of boots and shoes are fully produced at its factory in Northampton, the traditional shoemaking centre of England. This collaboration with Burberry is a celebration of Tricker‘s rich heritage and expertise in shoemaking.
The Winter 2023 footwear collection is inspired by Tricker’s original country footwear. It features a range of brogues, Chelsea boots, and Derby shoes in a variety of colours and fabrications – from black, vine, and aubergine calf leather to warm camel suede. The designs are a perfect blend of Burberry’s creative vision and Tricker’s signature shapes, resulting in a collection that is both modern and timeless.
In line with sustainability concerns, the soles and uppers of the shoes have been traditionally stitched to welted leather insoles. This method not only ensures the durability of the footwear but also allows each piece to be repaired and refurbished, extending their lifespan significantly. All footwear is finished with a signature rubber sole designed for the outdoors, reflecting both brands’ history of outfitting pioneering explorers.
