Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 178

post #2656 of 4724

hi there,

 

although this is my my first post I have been a Tricker´s fan for some time now, and recieved my first pair of Eaton MTO´s from Richard yesterday - black calf with leather sole that will be a nice compliment to my black Stow´s. the question is what to order the next time? I live in Sweden and am in the market for something that can be used in the city during the fall/winter season as an alternative to my two pairs of RM Williams with rubber sole.

 

my thought is to apply these two models to the Stow in black scotchgrain leather with Dainite sole - what do you think?

As long as we all can agree on untreated/ raw selvedge jeans being the way to go, you won't hear a peep out of me tongue.gif

But yeah: I don't think a cuff looks bad on a boot usually, might look a bit weird(er) on top of some sneaks/ low top shoes... I still just go with what I feel like when I wake up...

Did you find your desired shoes yet? There are some Stows on the Tricker's website with the crepe sole. You could phone them or email them and probably get them that way. I just ordered some Epsoms that way and P&P was £30. But you'll need to be certain of your size. Once made, the shoes arrived at my house in four days, and I'm not near a city. Pretty unbelievably fast.

Or you should contact Shoe Healer. They have a strong presence on this site, a good Website, and they respond to inquiries quickly.

Like others on this thread, those crepe soles could be disastrous in slippery conditions. I ended up on my bum one time because of soles like that. Never knew what hit me, and I was down.

Just go with your feel, I guess. An individual thing.

The cuff up minimises raw denim stains on shoes.

Am I the only person i the world who like my jeans to end as they were intended?!

No sir, you are not.

Tricker's could possibly do with learning a lesson out of C&J's book when it comes to limiting production to what you can effectively manage from a quality perspective.

 

 

Hold on, are you serious? This is pretty worrying to hear. I have some MTO espresso's arriving next month...

Have I been drawn into spending £500 on a pair of boots that may only last a couple of years? I mean I love the look of the boot but the longevity of the things was really the whole idea.

 

Could you put up a photo or two of your 18 month old pair? would be greatly appreciated.

Don't worry Starclub, my eldest pair of Tricker's is a pair of Expresso Stow, it's 6 years old and they look just fine!

You just need to take good care of them: use shoe trees every time, let them rest 48h after you wore them, use nourishing cream for the leather and voila!

Thanks MSaint they look great and that's reassuring!

 

p.s. Nourishing cream as well as Obenauf's LP?

Sorry, I was referring to that particular pair and not necessarily to their boots in general. My Eatons are 18 months old and in great condition; it's just my own pair of Stows that I meant.

 

They're actually four months old (barely) and have been worn 'hard' (in this case, walking maybe half a dozen miles) a couple or three times a week...and kept on trees with the leather being fed.

 

'Pologies for the poor colour quality:

It's the creasing like here that gives me food for thought, and I'll be keeping an eye on it....it was a picture of a well-worn pair of Stows earlier in this thread that inspired me to get these, but I wasn't expecting them to age quite so quickly:

Maybe I'm just being picky...

Hey - it's personal choice, no one is right or wrong!

 

Personal choice indeed, although I'd suggest that turn-ups were the way they were intended to be worn, so that each person could have them at their own preferred length.

 

Tailored jeans? Not for me...although if you're going to do it, at least get them chain-stitched! smile.gif

The creasing often depends on your feet and how you "wear" the boot, that being said my latest pair of Stow (Lolipop turned to oxblood) crease like crazy for no reason, it must be the leather used for this particular batch/pair.

Leather being a "living" material it can explain the differences even between two shoes. Nonetheless all my Tricker's boots crease the same way due to my feet form and the way I walk.

Hello everybody, i have a question about Tricker's size(yeah, i know Tricker's can be...tricky for sizing).

I own several model of Henry boots and i noticed that the one i have with a commando sole seems to be around 3-4 mm(i'd say half a size) larger than the one i have with a vibram sole; i usually wear a 7,5 but the one with the commando just feels a little big. Did anybody notice something similar or is it just my boots that got screwed up in some way? I am asking because i wanted to place a MTO order at Tricker's for a suede henry with a commando sole but at this point i am really uncertain about the size.

Thanks!
