Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 169post #2522 of 71706/13/12 at 3:50ampost #2523 of 71706/13/12 at 7:08amQuote:
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.post #2524 of 71706/13/12 at 9:25amQuote:Originally Posted by djwoblely
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.
Try looking at drmartens.com they have allot of sizes and styles. And free shipping with no min. order.post #2525 of 71706/13/12 at 7:30pmpost #2526 of 71706/14/12 at 3:35amQuote:
Why don't you drop me an email at email@example.com 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 ;-)

Wait, aren't all current stock Stows, Bourtons, as well as your bulk MTOs already made with the #12 toe die w/o those extra 4 punches?
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 ?? :-)post #2528 of 71706/14/12 at 3:45ampost #2529 of 71706/14/12 at 9:04amQuote:
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:post #2530 of 71706/14/12 at 11:39amQuote:Originally Posted by Shoehealer

Keep using the 12, I'd like to keep my brogue boots a little more unique!Quote:
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:post #2531 of 71706/14/12 at 1:01pmForgive 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.

As always, Richard and Michelle were a delight. I wasn't familiar with Tricker's suede, but it feels great.post #2532 of 71706/14/12 at 1:24pmpost #2533 of 71706/14/12 at 3:02pmQuote:Originally Posted by mothball

Great choices all around. Can you comment at all on the quality of the new AS ranges? It looks top notch.post #2534 of 71706/14/12 at 5:27pmThe 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.post #2535 of 71706/14/12 at 6:44pm
