He has some basic fitting advice here:

but is also very generous with his time via email.

Exactly what I did too. Got answer today, they seems to be a bit big in size, he recommended a half size down.

Quick question: is the 4537 longer than the 2161? I have the Chepstow and would like to try another last that is just a little longer. Thanks!

How much were they?

I've been saving up for these and just today when I went to order it indicates my size is out of stock.

Does anyone know where else I can find this model? or something similar- black with contrasting welt and commando sole?

My internet searches have been fruitless.

Any help would be much, much appreciated.

265 GBP less 20% for VAT. Came out to a little under $400 including shipping to the US (25 GBP for shipping).

Doesn't sound like a huge bargain, but it's a great price for Tricker's.

I have an embarrassingly silly question...

I picked up a pair of Trickers wingtip boots, but the combination of the flexible sole and softer, more pliable leather is causing me some worry.

Like most non-moccasin shoes, the shape of the toe doesn't follow the actual contours of your foot.
In other, well-fitting shoes I'll have a gap between the end on the tip of the shoe's toe, and my actual foot, but because of the hard sole and stiff toe it goes unnoticed.
However in my new boots because the sole is so flexible and the leather on the toe so much softer this gap is noticeable when stepping. It's a bit hard to describe, but I worry it's almost like wearing a shoe that's too big, and I'm afraid it'll trip me up, or crease bizarrely.
It's and just because it seems a bit different, I'm naturally regretting my purchase and fishing for confirmation that everything is okay.

I've been wearing these Stow's about a month now and they are beginning to soften nicely and mould to my feet.







I had to get them MTO as I needed the width 6 fitting

Richard @ Shoehealer recommended the back strip in Scotch grain to make them unique.

I'm really pleased with the result. Just put in insoles to make walking more comfortable.

What's the difference between the colors 1001 and acorn? They look very similar in shade, if not identical...
post #2814 of 4743
Not much difference.

Acorn Stows and 1001 Monks.

Thanks for the comparison Z! Coincidentally, I am thinking of picking up the monks. Do you wear the same size between the Stow and the monks? I've read conflicting information about how much to size down on the smart/dress lasts. I went 1 size down on my Chepstow (2161) and maybe I could get away with it maybe 1/2 longer. I think it is just the 2161 last is shorter and maybe the 4537 last is a little longer.

The monks are 1/2 size larger than the Stows.
I think I could have gotten away with the same size as the Stows but the extra room in the toes feels good.

That's my thinking for going a half size longer. The 1001 is an awesome color but it's too bad they don't make the Piccadilly with 1001.

Hey all,

 

New here, and just picked up my first pair of Trickers, the Stows in Marron Antique. Pretty pumped about the shoes in general, but have a question about the double leather soles... What's the verdict on wearing them out in the rain? I generally try to avoid wearing my other leather soled shoes in wet weather, but these look so beefy that I doubt a little wet weather will slow them down! Would a coat of sno-seal or similar on the soles be sufficient enough to protect them in inclement weather, or should I keep the wear to the dry days? 

 

Cheers, and I apologize if the topic's been covered already, I tried to search and there seem to be a lot of conflicting opinions.

I'm new so this may be a really stupid question:

 

I'm on my third pair of Trickers.  The first was a pair of black Woodstocks which I purchased in London at their retail store and I love them.  Totally amazing shoes with thick leather.  I've had them for 5 years and they still look amazing.  The second pair I purchased in London at their store last month (Bourton Espresso) and they're also amazing.  Same thick leather and I cant wait to fully break them in.  However, I just completed an over the phone last week for some marron Bourtons and they arrived slightly different?  I'm not sure if it's the leather or the guy that made them but they seem oddly mass produced to me?  I may be crazy but has anyone seen a difference between the in-store purchased Trickers to the mail?  Do they use different lasts?  Or is it the leather quality?  I cant figure it out.  I looked at them for an hour last night trying to figure it out.  The new (mailed) Bourtons are just different somehow?  

 

Did I mention I'm new.  :)

I've had a pair of Woodstocks for years and they're amazing.  I wouldn't worry about them in any weather.  I've worn mine on 3 continents in all kinds of weather and they still look amazing.
