I'm mixing two different leathers on my customs, I'm having the front/back in black calf leather and the center/upper in Scotch Grain leather. What do you think of that combo?

Has anybody had a custom pair of Trickers made before through Shoe Healer in the UK? (www.shoehealer.co.uk). I'm looking at taking the plunge on a custom pair of Henry boots and getting a little crazy
I'm in the hunt for a pair of Tricker's in the Henry model, without the commando sole. Which is the best place to find them?
