Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 145

post #2161 of 5021

I just ordered my first pair of Trickers and am completely stoked!  I have been waiting for the perfect collaboration and found it at Frans Boone.  Grey suede longwing with navy piping, natural barbour welt and navy vibram soles.  Shoes should be in next week!  I'll post some actual pics once I get them.  Thanks all for sharing all the awesome Trickers shoes and introducing me to such a great company!

Very nice grey longwing.
Did you find out what last they're on?
The "Richard" name would imply the W2298.

I wonder why the boot version is almost 100 euros more.

Thanks for the advice gentlemen. I think I'm going to go with 8UK with the roomier 4444 last on the Eatons.

If you plan to go for 4444 last, I think you should rather go for UK 8,5.

MSAINT : I went out of battery this morning so no picture but after checking it's true that using simple medium brown does not look as good as original coffee burnished.

I'll buy your combination when I run out of medium brown! Thank you!

I asked David from Retricker on the polish to use when I purchased mine and this was his answer:

Wut? Black on brown shoes? Unless you dramatically want to change the color I would not do that at all (and I avoid clear as it has a tendency to leave white residues on the leather even when using small quantities of cream (it worth when it's wax or paste))
I used black on reddish (lolipop Ripon) shoes to turn them into oxblood but it was in combination with mahogany cream:

Though, I gess, the funny thing about shoe care is that you car experiment... just remember that "less is more"! wink.gif

My guess is that the base leather colour is light tan like the lining and the black polish is used to burnish it into a coffee shade, hence "coffee burnished".

Did you do something to the sole edges? They look different from most Tricker's. Kind of like an antique oak.

Yep, I treated the natural welt and the sole as the rest of the shoe: Dark and light brown Saphyr médaille d'or cream (an old flat paintbrush is very useful there).
The only difference with the shoe is that I heavily wiped the sole with a cotton fabric after a few minutes to make the sole and heal more like wood.

Looks very good.
I'd be too afraid to do that myself.

You shouldn't it's very easy!
Just start with a very little cream it'll darken with time and thanks to the layering.
You only need good quality products, some cotton rags and a flat brush.
Again, as I stated: less is more!

Hello there

 

I have just joined this Forum, but have been checking in recently as a 'lurker' to gather all the great information as I looked to buy my first pair of Trickers.

 

Anyway, they arrived today - these beautiful Stow boots in Lollipop red...

Could you please advise me what cream/polishes to buy to treat these with.

 

I intend to wear them a lot, especially initially, to get them worn in. What's their resistance to a bit of rain and bad weather? I feel that I have spent this money on a shoe built to last and they should be able to take a bit of 'rough' weather and handle good use. Would you recommend a commando sole to be fitted and how much would I be looking at for this?

 

Thanks in advance...

Hello Starclubyeah,
Very nice purchase indeed!
Don't worry about the foul weather or any kind of weather as those are country boots initially made to be worn in every type of weather and terrain.
My only advise is to buy wood (raw wood) shoe trees and never wear the same leather shoes two days in the row (leather shoes need to dry especially from sweat to last long)
As for the shoe care, you have the choice between a careful care (using quality products after a good regular brushing: cleaning milk, cream like Saphir, or Grison...) or tough care (brushing then applying Obenauf's Heavy Duty shoe care once in a while... Just don't use oils or grease on your Tricker's)
whatever the choice: shoe trees, brushing the dust out of the leather and and letting the shoes "rest and breathe" are the key to a long lasting relationship between your feet and your Tricker's!
