Nah,

I saw the same boots a while back and made a note the next pair would be mine!
But, no point getting the wrong size just to wish they fitted you better.

If they were an 8 I'd be wearing them by now. I have some Allan's already in 8 and they are fine, but thought they are the 4497 last? Might have to check, now! I didn't mention them by name at the time as I wanted to keep them quiet while I did my research! Not that it was hard to figire it out!

Didn't fancy the black - got enough brogues.

Next time...

Same boat as you regarding size, I have sized up in the past thinking I'm getting a bargain but nearly always end up regretting it.

 

If the Stows had been any other colour (excep Iris that is) I would have been in but black shell seems a bit pointless to me.

I don't know how many of you follow The Shoe Healer on Facebook, but he's been posting pictures of a lot of MTO's as they arrive, including my Eaton in orange shell:



I thought this boot was intriguing as well:



I don't know how often I'd wear a bal boot, but if you guys have any interest in a group MTO for one, I'd be in on it.

Your Eatons looks awesome but those bal boots look like some one wearing a rubber overshoe.

Thanks, guys--I'm excited to see them in person.

retrickers - how much duties / customs am I going to get normally?
post #2935 of 4871
DHL, so expect the worst
post #2936 of 4871
No, the worst is Fedex.
DHL brokerage fee is $6 versus $25-30 for Fedex.
Duty should be the same for either which should be around 8 or 9% (Although one time DHL dinged by for 12%. Not worth the effort to get them to correct it.)
Also, I'm only about 30% of my shipments getting billed by DHL versus around 80% via Fedex.

Thanks, yeah I've never gotten customs from DHL, when studiohomme still existed I'd be getting $400 orders on average. Kinda want the espresso one with green lining

The espresso Allans? Do it.

Just a quick post in praise of Richard and Michelle at The Shoe Healer - I had a rare Saturday off and so made the trip over to Doncaster to do some serious trying-on. I've not had Tricker's before, and so wasn't sure of my size/fit - my local shops don't have much to offer, and trying and returning shoes bought online was becoming pretty tedious.

 

In short, probably the best customer experience I can remember. The selection of stock available to try was excellent and both Richard and Michelle were incredibly patient, knowledgeable and accommodating - not at all intimidating for a first-time buyer, as some places can be. I know many on here have had positive things to say regarding web-based sales and the MTO service, I would just add that if you're thinking of making the trip in person I found it to be well worth the effort for the advice alone!

 

Oh, and I have some new shoes!

^Totally agree, well worth popping over if you've time and the place is a bloody treasure trove...What did you get?

 

These arrived this morning, a vintage suede derby model:

 

 

Will get some proper pics up tomorrow.
