There's nothing quite like the real smell of leather, the feel of a good cushioned sole, or knowing that your feet are pounding the London pavements in a pair of shoes coming from a shop approved by the Prince of Wales himself. If you want to have that feeling yourself, head along to Tricker's in Piccadilly.
Tricker's have been making shoes since 1829, and as I stated before, the shop bears the seal of the Prince of Wales, an honour only bestowed on those approved by his Royal Highness, and who supply goods or services to him for five years or more. It is unsurprising too, as the shoes are hand-made and meticulously put together - over 250 operations are needed in order to make one pair.
Obviously, having shoes of this quality are not going to come cheap, but should you wish to indulge yourself you will most definitely notice the difference, especially if you go for the bespoke option, where the shoes are actually made based around the measurements of your feet, and your own discerning specifications. There are of course other options available though should this be a little too extravagant for you - a comprehensive range of mens and womens collections are available, plus all the accessories you will need to go with them, and take care of them too.
So, should you be wandering around Piccadilly and decide that a new pair of shoes is just what you need - commit yourself to heading down Jermyn Street - and treat your feet to a pair of shoes that will treat your feet like royalty.
