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!


Many thanks for this advice MSAINT. I have ordered some wooden trees and a pot of Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Protector. I'm definitely for the 'tough care approach' but realize this is an individual chioce. 

 

I've sent my boots up to The Shoe healer to have commando soles fitted. Looking forward to getting them back and breaking them in...

Just won the auction for its 1001 burnished Bourton with flat welt/waxed leather sole

Nice find.
I just bought the brown two tone Bowoods.

Got my Bowoods from Reads today. Very pleased.

My Bourtons... with unusual flat welt. I must admit waxy sole is crap.
A shame Reads won't likely do collaborations with Tricker's again...

What don't you like about the waxy sole? Is it just those waxy soles or all waxy soles that you don't like?
I like the flat welt on those. It makes them look almost sleek at least compared to other Bourtons.

it is my first experience with waxy soles. It feels like it is only a thin layer that retains all crap from the street and uses up very quickly. I could remove bits of it at the top of the sole after the first day of wear.
I hope my cobbler will be able to fix it.

Visited the Jermyn St store at the weekend and was very tempted by the new Bourtons in "Visone" calf. They didn't have them in my size so I picked up the following Bourton in Gold MC with a commando sole:
