In Praise of Trickers - Page 5

post #61 of 257
I just ordered a pair of suede Trickers with rubber soles from B&S. I love suede bucks and thought this would be an interesting alternative to wear with denim and sport coats. I will post some pics when they arrive. I sure hope they fit, I hear Trickers vary a lot depending upon the last.

I haven't tried the 6 fitting (and have no reason to), but the 5 fitting country last is already wider than 5 fitting city lasts at the same size. Sizing down 1/2 size did not work for me. The boot is wide enough -- maybe a touch too wide, even -- but too short. Unfortunately for my budget, 4 fitting boots are only available by special order.

I am a tricker's fan now ... I just recieved these from B&S and they are really nice. They seem to be pretty well made, though some might consider the thick sole clunky.

For $125, they are worth every penny.

I've been buying Tricker's shoes for quite a while... I've always been very happy with them...

Seems they don't make a narrow width shoe, is that correct?

Thank you! Indeed, I asked to "Shoe healer" for this MTO. I paid 295 GBP...

Any idea where I can get a pair like the one in the pics below. This is on sale on ebay right now but not in my size.

u can try asking pediwear as I know they can help u to do a custom made design from Trickers.

^ Thanks for the suggestion. I could try Pediwear or even Shoe Healer but one reason I am hesitant to do that is that I am unsure of my size in Trickers. I could send back a pair of regular shoes if they didnt fit me but would be stuck with a MTO. The other factor is cost. The MTO range at Shoe healer starts at 295 GBP exc VAT. I could get this Church's for 308 euros less 20% VAT. Guess I would have to wait till one pops up on Trickers ebay shop

Requested a quote on some custom trickers today similar to the Junya X trickers of 2009 with a different sole and suede and they want roughly 600 shipped to the US.

My father being in his 70's says they are worth every penny but I am having a tough time deciding if my pockey book can justify the cost.

Well. I just feel like I have to chip in at this point - my tan belgraves are pretty cool! Got them mid-way last year. The blue box is awesome btw, beats CJ's dreary green packaging. I just wish Trickers had some really dark brown colors, something like the CJ ones. Has anyone here made a custom order of an existing model, with modifications to color only?
