Thanks bbhewee. Which city last shoes do you have?

I had the James penny loafer which I sold because it just didn't look right on my big feet... But I loved them.
And I tried on various models, including the Regent, Guildford and Harvard, but somehow always end up sticking to Trickers for the country shoes only, probably due to the fact that I don't really need to wear city shoes regularly. But all of these in a 12UK in the 5 width were pretty good.
12UK in the country collection is a tad big, 11UK is a tad short, and 11.5 is MTO only (in the UK at least) so I only have one pair which fit me rather well. But they are not perfect as I have a low instep, which means they are tied rather tightly. Not ideal, but not a problem either.

Stow with dainite sole in antique acorn from pediwear.
Amazed at how fast they got here. Shipped from GB Tuesday and delivered two days later.
Yay for parcel force/usps. Plus no customs/duty.


Smiley face heel.


With the Bourtons from Leather Soul. Tom alluded to it, but these things are beasts.
They have to have the thickest, stiffest double sole I've ever experienced. It's going to take forever to break these things in.

yes I was pleasantly shocked at the speed of parcel force too. When I saw that it was a mail service I assumed 7-10 days transit and they arrived in 2. and like you said NO CUSTOMS!

did the boots come with shoe trees? My antique acorn brogues came with (what look like lasted) shoe trees which were included in the price. And once you buy a pair of Trickers from pedi you are in their "Trickers club" which gets you 10% (or was it 15) off all future Trickers purchases.

sole is thick, they take a while to break in, but arent uncomfortable to wear. I've never had any discomfort with new Trickers, just that initial stiffness from the sole being so beastly

They came with Dasko shoe trees, some Tricker's polish, and Pediwear shoe horn. Also got a letter for the Tricker's Club and a 5% discount.

Yeah, the Bourtons were okay on my feet except for the usual bit of soreness from a new pair of shoes. But I was comparing them to some Alden and C&J double shoes and the Tricker's are just so much heavier and stiffer. I like it. It's just that at the rate I rotate through shoes, it could be years before they're broken in.

They actually are a lot more comfortable and break-in quicker than you may think. But yes, they're pretty damn sturdy shoes.
post #188 of 4875
Damn, zippyh, those are awesome. That acorn color is stunning - it'll be interesting to see how it breaks in.

I envy your daininte soles. I'm going to have Cat's Paw put on my leather-soled stows this weekend. They're terrible in wet weather.

i hear you. I'm just starting to give the acorn Bourton brogues some real wear now. I tend to wear shoes in phases, where I'll only wear like 2 or 3 religiously for a while and nothing else. Then rotate to another 2 or 3. I have no ability to wear a different pair everyday, it's sort of all or none for me.

how is a dainite sole in wet/snowy weather? is a commando sole the more versatile choice?
