Tricker's Whitman Wingtip Shoes - Oxfords, Calf Leather (For Men)
Closeouts. It was 1829 when the first pair of Tricker's hit the streets, and more than 180 years later, here come Tricker's Whitman wingtip shoes in satin-finished calf leather with brogued detail aplenty.

Reviewed by Tall Teacher from Nebraska on Friday, October 10, 2014I have spent several decades of my career in which most hours were on my feet, and I'm sure like many others, thought this was torture. Eventually my back began to give me problems, and what's more, after perhaps a year (even with alternating pairs, shoe trees, and proper care) each pair of "prestige" dress shoes would look haggard and worn. Even several high-end American brands didn't measure up–especially to these.
180 years of experience makings shoes in a country where one must walk longer distances in comfort pays off. Quite simply, every successive day in my Trickers is heaven. Heaven. No back pain, no hot spots, no creases. The leather wears beautifully; compliments abound. The goodyear-welts, cork-filled, have formed to my feet like custom-made shoes, and these come as close to truly one-off handmade pieces as I'll get without dropping $2,000 on a bespoke pair. It's clear they'll last decades with proper care, and I'm guessing I'll retire before these do.
Frankly, there are a few items in this modern, dispose-of-it world that still offer more value than the price one pays. These are truly among those few; their quality, heritage, and longevity are worth far more than the price one pays, especially at STP. In all likelihood, these are so well made that I can likely pass them down to my son down the road.
But he's not getting them unless I'm dead.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ron McCranie from Fort Worth, TX on Monday, July 14, 2014I've owned Tricker's for 15 years and have finally worn out my first pair. That's when I decided to get these. The only negative is that they don't fit the same as my last pair did based on size.
Reviewed by Miloubaba from NC on Tuesday, January 14, 2014Classic English style
Reviewed by VG from California on Monday, September 30, 2013These are great shoes. The original Tricker's shop in London in Mayfair is a beautiful shop and the company has been making high quality British shoes for generations. I was delighted to see these for sale on Sierra. Extraordinary workmanship and flawless attention to detail. With proper care I can see 10 - 15 years of use out of these shoes.
Reviewed by JP Tom from Japan on Sunday, April 14, 2013Very well crafted shoes at a great price. I usually wear a 10 and these fit, and comfortably, right out of the box. Fairly versatile - go well with grey slacks and quality jeans.
Reviewed by dondraperesq from Los Angeles on Saturday, March 23, 2013Better than Tod's, better than Allen Edmunds, better than Church's. I can't say enough how nice these shoes are. Get them while you can.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Andrew from Boston on Wednesday, December 26, 2012These shoes are what hand-made British shoes are all about. The craftmanship is excellent, classic wingtip style, the STP price is unreal, they are very very comfortable to wear, and true to size.
