Very interesting that you bought the same size in both and that they fit equally well, as they are different lasts.  I wear the shoes (last 4444) half a size smaller than the boots (last 4497s) and this is the normal recommendation.  Just shows how tricky it can be. Glad that you love them so much.  My suggestion, wear them, punish them, polish them ... they will look super and last you forever.
 Ha ha .... do it! To be honest, the Mallory isn't built to the same standard as a Tricker's boot, but it isn't far off.  And it has a half-veldtschoen sole, which is silly, but these are my go-to boots.  They are easily the most comfortable pair that I have (and I have quite a few) and they have been punished ... but they just keep bouncing back. The other thing that I did to them, as soon as they were delivered from Richard, was to strip the wax "patina" from them with a...
I'll send you a PM princealbert
I know that these aren't Tricker's, so a little off-topic, but I thought that you might all like to see what Richard and his team did for my Cheaney Mallorys.  A less-popular sole these days, but very well deserving of a revival ... the ITSHIDE Golfer.  Super comfortable and I am delighted with the result.  Miles better on this boot, and much more interesting, than the original Dainite studded sole:       Thanks again, Richard.
Fellow Tricker's aficionados, a tale of how I have just ended up with an improved pair of boots that I really love.   I bought a pair of Tricker's Polos on eBay nearly two years ago.  They were a bargain ... a never-worn collaboration with ASOS for £101.  They looked like this:     Well, I am a bit more traditional and never really liked the red soles, nor the very pale welt, but they were light and easy to wear on a warm day.  I darkened the welt, and that improved...
Hello Sunil, Return them if you can and then give Richard a call.  I am sure that he will make you smile again. All the best,MM
Whilst I understand that the hand-made process lends itself to certain irregularities, I wouldn't accept those. Where did you buy them from?  Were they mail-order? The question I always ask myself when deciding whether or not to return mail-order goods is "would I have accepted these flaws and gone ahead with the purchase if it was taking place in a shop?'.  I don't know about you, but if I saw these in a store I would be asking them to bring me another pair. How...
The rubber inserts in Tricker's heels are rubbish ... they wear far too quickly. When you finally re-heel get JR Rendenbach heels and feel the difference.  They have more shock absorption but last miles longer. Having said that, yes .... increase the medication. MM
Sunil, as others have said, these marks are cosmetic and won't affect the performance of your boot. It is up to you whether or not you can live with them. If you can, after a very short time, a couple of creme and polishes and some wear you probably won't even notice these things any more. If you cannot then you could contact the Tricker's store and tell them how you feel.  However, what you will likely find yourself up against is their argument that they are a...
