Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 234

post #3496 of 4656

Recently purchased my first Trickers, a pair of Kendals. Really like the thick double sole, feel like I can go to battle with these shoes. However, aesthetically i think I like the look of a natural sole/welt. Has anyone sanded off the painted colour off their soles to arrive at a more natural look? Is it something i should consider doing myself? Thanks for your help.

Only if you're able to 'seal' it after sanding it down. I think they use some kind of wax to do this, and not just wax polish...

Search around. I know there have been folks who did it themselves. Specifically the C&J Cordovan for Ralph Lauren thread in Classic Menswear. There have been a few people who DIY/had it done on their Marlows. Also I know I've seen it done in the Alden thread.
Remember you're going to have to have a cobbler do it if you want the welt changed out. I think B. Nelson in NYC charges about what you'd pay for a resole to do it though.

Just doing the edge trim looks pretty simple if you're going to DIY.

Thank you for the information. Appreciate it.

Hard to tell from the post stamp sized image, but are those the grey suede ones?

Paul & Friends has grey calf (not suede) ones.

STP has grey suede wingtips but alas not Bourtons.

183 pounds shipped to the US, in for a pair at that price. Blue ones were tempting too but held off as I just bought blue carminas

I couldn't resist at that price either.

Recived my second pair of Trickers a few weeks ago and I`am interested in some tips on how to take care of my new "waxy brown calf leather". I never had a pair of shoes/boots with leather this way so basically I`am interested in how to "polish". I usually use different kinds of products from Saphir. Does a pair of "waxy" just need some Renovatuer now and then?

 

When it comes to my first pair I am very happy with them but someone at this forum asked how they might hold in snowy/wet conditions, I think they keept apperance rather god, but I would not throw away those Welingtons yet :-)
