Here is what your natural welt could look like after 1 year and a half (the boots are worn once a week, twice maximum).

Thank you for the answers and photo, I decided to purchase a pair of acorn Keswick commando in fitting 5 from the Burea Belfast, will post photos when I receive them.

I also have 2 pairs of Tricker's benchgrade from the 1829 line, Regent and Kensington, they fit me very well, like the 724 last from Alfred Sargent. Though as not elegant, they feel tough and sturdy, and they are my go to shoes if I have to walk a bit in a day in rough areas.







However, I must be unlucky, as their finishing touches are rather poor, the interior lining edges are really rough, so had to use black polish to cover it up, and the welt isn't stuck on properly to the sole!

Some layers of polish and a bit of elbow grease, it will be gone.

are the Stow and the Keswick built on the same last? I am an 8D in the Alden Barrie last and trying to figure out my sizing for these two styles. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Stow is typically on 4497.

Keswick/Bowood/Bourton are on the 4444.
They're all more or less the same style, just multiple names.

Zippy,

Thanks so much. Do these two lasts fit the same or differently?

They both fit fairly generous.
The 4444 fits even bigger than 4497.

Richard from Shoe Healer has a nice page explaining the difference.

Start with a damp cloth and wet that area to extract any alocohol left behind - allow plenty of drying time. Next some renovateur or similar product - this will (should) give you some colour gradient around the spot. Next use some heavily dyed polish/cream (kiwi make a 'renovator' which is ideal) focussing on the area, use small amounts of polish and brush heavily between applications (leave the polish to dry for a good 20 mins). Once the spot is as blended as you like, give your whole shoe a polish as you would normally.

Hello, this is a great thread. Would any of you mind posting some pics of the Stow being worn? I'm considering ordering some but can't seem to find many pics of how they look on the leg (profie, front view, etc.). Many thanks in advance.

Got my Bureau Belfast Trickers Keswick this week, very nice shoes and I replaced the laces with dark brown to match the sole.

But got to say, Bureau Belfast offers no service in terms of questions and answers, I sent them 2 emails about fit, no answer; and 2 emails about them sending out the wrong pair of laces, they are supposed to include a pair of yellow/brown laces, none included, and again, no answer.

Luckily, at least their private Tricker's line is nice. Keswick Acorn Fitting 5, Commando sole.
