These shoes were bench made in Northampton, England by Trickers. There is a reason they have a Royal Warrant y’know. The leather is sourced from France, the stitching on the welt is impeccable and the broguing is perfect. A beautiful quality shoe.
Sadly these shoes are insanely expensive, around $1,250! That’s way too much, I was barely able to afford them and that was with the credit I used at the store. If I had to pay retail for these out of my pocket I would flip. Don’t get me wrong they are BEAUTIFUL shoes, absolutely amazing quality but its just too much for me. A good pair of shoes should run you around $350-550 depending on what you get (cordovan etc). Lasted shoe trees (shoe trees made from the last the shoe was made off of) will run you around $100. So where is the rest of the mark up?
