Hi Roman, the Navy 'Roy' are scheduled to arrive December, subject top no delays. With Christmas holidays, I would hope the Boots would arrive in our store by early December.The Cipresso MTO is scheduled January delivery.Richard.
Based purely on 'averages' Tricker's consider just Half a Size difference between UK and US Sizes, so broadly speaking a regular fitting and true to size US 11 would equate to a regular fitting and true to size UK 10 1/2.Examples to consider......Tricker's most popular Lasts 4497s, W2298, 81, 4537, 2161 and 6038L all in regular Width Fitting 5 are found by most to be true to size.4497s in Wide 'Fitting 6' is by comparison generous by half a size.Last number 4444 in regular...
May I add my 'two penneth' on this Munky ?I agree that the rubber element of a standard Tricker's Heel does wear very quickly, more for some than others. When we repair the Heels on Tricker's and replace them with Rubber/Leather combination Heel Tops, we fit 'Rendenbach' Oak bark leather and Rubber. These are a couple of mm thicker than those that are fitted original so the Heel Stack has to be balanced before fitting. The Rendenbach Rubber 'wears like iron', and will last...
Let me know what you need and the delivery address Sir, and I will send you some in the post with my compliments ! :-) Preferably drop me an email info@shoehealer.co.uk for a more timely response ?
Useful information for some ?Under the Backsock and Heel cushion inside every Tricker's shoe, is the UK Size and Last Number the shoes were made on. The 'UK Size' element is important, as Tricker;s make shoes for some US and Japanese outlets in US and Japanese Sizes. These are a Half Size different to UK Sizes. ie; Hand Written on the Lining of a US Sized 9, under the Backsock it would be written 8 1/2.The Backsock is only fixed in place with contact adhesive and can...
If I made add my 'two penneth' Brew, and in no particular order ?Tricker's mislead many by using Numbers instead of Letters to denote the Width Fitting of their shoes, so as correctly pointed out, if it is hand written on the Lining 10.5. then it is a size 10, width fitting 5 (standard width). Half Sizes would be written 10 1/2 .5. but......the 'Half' is written as a fraction (1/2), and is most often so badly written that it is indercipherable.You have the Stow, on 4497s...
My own thoughts too, is that considering Tricker's Half Size Difference between UK and US Sizing, so true to average size US 8, try UK 7 1/2 in Tricker's 4537 Last which is found by most to be more or less true to average size.
No problem at all Sir, and please feel free to ask for any information I may be able to help you with, anytime.Just a heads up Guys, after a conversation today with the factory.Snuff Waxy Commander, a great leather is in very limited supply and most likely will be discontinued. There are decent stocks of Cuba Waxy Commander available.Best regards,Richard.
A 'Die' is a tool used to punch the Brogue Pattern on the Toe Cap. The term 'Toe Die' is used at the factory, and it is also known as a 'Toe Medallion'.
A question of opinion for you Guys, does 4444 Last work with a Flat Welt and closer Sole Edge Trim ? Me, I am not so sure but each to their own I guess. I would be interested to hear your opinions.....
