With the pending change in seasons on our doorstep, the time is ripe to give a little consideration to refreshing our essential accessories as well as the garments that inhabit our wardrobes. A novel alternative to ubiquitous brown and black styles, these green Commando brogue Bourton shoes from eminent British cobblers, Tricker’s, are just the sartorial tonic to greet the new season.
Crafted from the highest-grade materials using the respected good year welted technique, these English-made shoes have been hand-hewn by skilled craftsmen with unrivalled cordwaining expertise. A sturdy and assured style to take on the icy pavements and uncertain underfoot terrain of the forthcoming months, their punchy organic tone will bring a welcome dash of personality to your footwear assemblage.
Established in 1829 by the enterprising Joseph Balthrop, Tricker’s produce their shoes exclusively in the historic capital of quality British shoemaking, Northampton. Following the age-old customs of traditional shoe manufacture, every Tricker’s design is handcrafted by a skilled and dedicated cobbler, yielding a finished product that embodies the brand’s centuries of expertise and inimitable pedigree.
A family-run operation since its founding, Tricker’s remains very much an intimate affair, with the fifth generation descendant of Joseph Balthrop overseeing the business today. Held in high regard by sartorially-shrewd footwear connoisseurs since the 19th century, the label counts the present Prince of Wales, a style icon in his own right, as a steadfast patron for more than two decades.
Whilst renowned for its traditional craftsmanship and timeless designs, the creative team’s recent endeavours have brought Tricker’s bang up-to-date for the 21st century dresser. Typifying this forward-thinking attitude, these commando brogues seamlessly fuse the classic and contemporary, making them the perfect choice to stride through winter with confidence.
Tricker’s green Commando brogue Bourton shoes are a world exclusive to my-wardrobe.com; available now for £355.
