Thanks, SJ. 
Sorry, Yellow, I can see, now, that you were responding to another post!  
To partly answer my own question, having looked further into it, I think I can see that the Tricker's are of better quality and build.
Does anyone know if Tricker's make shoes for Sander's (or vice versa)?  Tricker's and Sander's seem to offer very similar, coloured, brogues that look pretty much identical. Except that the Tricker's are much more expensive. Having bought two pairs of the former, I hope the differences are in terms of quality and/or build of the shoes. To satisfy my OCD tendencies, I spent a good hour, this morning, comparing photos.  There are small differences...but... Yours, steeped in...

Does this cream sound like a good thing to use on your shoes?
This is a photo, from the internet, of a pair of shoes identical to my new, green, Trickers.   
 Thanks for this, Sleepy. 
I have just taken delivery of my beautiful, green, Boughtons, to go with my red pair. On their web page, they describe the red leather as 'calf leather' and the green leather as 'analine leather'. Given that these leathers are both described on the same page of their website, what is the distinction they are making here?  One noticeable difference between the two is that lots of colour transfers to a cloth, on the red pair and hardly any does on the green pair.
