Dubbin applied when they've been wiped clean, and only when needed (maybe twice or three times a year for boots that have been regularly exposed to the elements). Apply it all over, especially to the welt and any seams on the boot, after having used a toothbrush and water to get any dirt out of those areas.

 

You can get a shine out of any leather, just some require more effort than others. The only real way to shine waxy leather is to properly bull it with a decent amount of elbow grease. Heavily bulled boots will need stripping down from time to time so that you can feed the leather.

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(U.K.) 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!

Hi, if you wish to drop me an email at info@shoehealer.co.uk and I will give you all the information you will need to consider and check beyond doubt, the Sizing of your 'Henry'.

TRICKERS shoes, how do they run? Narrow or wide? Size up or size down? If you're a __ in say Converse by John Varvatos or a __ in Clarks original desert boots you should take a __ in Trickers. Not a quiz, just need some advice. :)

I should add, I have a slightly wider foot.

They run TTS despite the chunky look. I have wide feet as well and wear US 8 in Converse. In Trickers 4497 last (most common country boots last), it's UK 6.5 fitting 6 (E width in US measurements) or UK 7 fitting 5 (D width). The latter is abit too long for my liking though.

Very nice (they remind me of the colours of Leeds University)...and they'll be hardier in the rain than most, so don't be shy about getting your feet wet!

I thought about a green shell Eaton. I can talk to Richard and try to put together a group MTO, but I'm afraid it may be tough to get 6 for green.

I'd be in for green shell, but not on the 4444 last, which I simply can't get to fit properly.

Would be interested to hear your thoughts Guys.

Do you think some of the attraction of Cordovan, ie the creasing and patina that develops over time can be 'lost' in a model with Brogue Punching ?

Only my own personal opinion, after seeing a few pairs of Cordovan after years of wear. I see models like the Burford, or perhaps the Austerity Stow in Cordovan working for me.

What do you think Guys ?

Thank you; it makes me glad that others with taste like my choice. I've a few pairs of Trickers but these are my only Cordovan, (up to now!) I've my eyes on lolliop red woodstock next, but not for a while. (I'll post pics of my other worn shoes and boots, some of the pics on this thread are fantastic, it's a pity I've only 2 feet!)
