Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 169

post #2521 of 4780
Anyone know where to get replacement laces or something really close to original laces for some Trickers maltons in c-shade. I read earlier in the post to contact richard but I am looking for something that wont have to cost so much to ship and I can order through a US site or store.

It would cost a couple or three quid to post them from the UK, no?

I think you focused on the wrong part of his sentence. Richard is thinking about specifically requesting that the medallion be placed further back, while continuing to use the Number 12.

I forgot how much it cost to post from UK but was hoping for some US alternative.

Why don't you drop me an email at info@shoehealer.co.uk remind me which Laces you would like for your Tricker's and the delivery address ? I'll pop a pair in the post with my compliments ;-)

Perhaps you could just suggest to the Tricker's production manager that they take better care in setting the toe die on all their shoes/boots. Tbh, it seems a bit random at times and I don't see how having part of the medallion lost behind the welt can be a good thing.
Would love to see you use the 'G' die with extra punches on a SH MTO.

I have actually had a discussion with the factory on the Toe Die being part lost behind the Welt. I did think for a while that they may be using the same size Pattern for at least two to three Half sizes, but I was assured definitely not. Maybe we should start a Vote. 12 Toe Die or 'G' Toe Die  ??   :-)

I am not sure to be honest Guys, which I prefer. Take a Vote ?

I prefer the current placement of the medallion.  Moving further back makes the shoes look too "busy".

However, I do like to see the tip of the wing be a bit longer like the Church's Grafton on the Shoe Healer's Website:

Keep using the 12, I'd like to keep my brogue boots a little more unique!

Yeah, and they've captured an entirely different market to the other surviving shoe-makers who still manufacture in England. I asked about getting some C&J MTO recently and the price was pretty extreme. Still tempted, though...

 

Whilst I really appreciate some of the MTO combinations, my own preference is for the more traditional Tricker's models, especially the older ones where their ongoing longevity is a big draw for me. These are the pair that I mentioned earlier, a standard navvy boot model which look to have been made on a similar last to the 'Skipton' veldt boots:

And with the other 'vintage' models:

Forgive me, guys, as a couple of these pictures are not of Tricker's, but I came home to three boxes from The Shoe Healer today.

Bourtons in gray suede

As always, Richard and Michelle were a delight. I wasn't familiar with Tricker's suede, but it feels great.

Any love for these around here? Found them yesterday.

Haven't cleaned them up yet... Most of this should come off, they've barely been worn.

Anyone know the age based on that embroidery pattern? Can't seem to find it online.

Great choices all around. Can you comment at all on the quality of the new AS ranges? It looks top notch.

The Holburn feels to me very similar to an non-shell Alden in construction. It feels very solid and well-put together. The Doncaster looked like it had a very stiff leather in pictures, but it's probably the softest boot I've felt. Definitely the most comfortable boot out of the box I've had; I'm curious to see how it ages. I'm really impressed with both.

What color are those Alfred Sargent Holburn? Really nice!
