I have been working with Richard at Shoe Healer (what an awesome guy!) on a custom MTO and wanted to float the makeup here and see if there are other interested parties? In discussion with Richard I have learned that if we get 6 total pairs ordered than it is no longer MTO, and the price reduces significantly. Richard likes the makeup enough to order a few pairs for his shop so all it will take is 3 orders in addition to mine. Here is the makeup, I think it will look sick and hope some others may be interested as well...

Stow boot in Teck cordovan
Red lining & red pull tab
Brass eyelets
Toe medallion set back so it is not on the welt
Mid Brown binding along the edge of the facings
Natural Barbour welt
Red Dainite sole


The boot will look similar to this. It will not be identical but will give you a pretty good sense



My thinking is that the red accents of the pull tab and sole would look quite nice as it would bring out some of the red tones of the cordovan. All payments would be made directly to Richard and I would not be involved in any way. Total price would be right around $650 including delivery. It would be like $150 deposit and then balance in 10-12 weeks when they are ready.

Hopefully we can get a few interested and move forward with this makeup. Please feel free to reply here or pm me if you are interested.

If i knew my tricker's sizing, I would consider it. I've never tried on a pair and don't have access to a retailer.

What would a 8.5EEE in the Alden Indy convert to in this make-up?

would be in, but red dainite kills it for me. if it was a natural/antiqued sole, i'd be in

 

shame

You are welcome to make a suggestion as to something as opposed to just being negative about my selection. I am open to other options and if there is enough interest we can discuss it. Otherwise I wil just move forward with my own MTO

meant no ill will, just was commenting on that if your makeup was liked enough by the shop owner to be willing to fill a couple slots himself for the MTO, it would not make much sense to try and alter the sole on my part.

 

that being said, I'd take the boot pictured with a leather sole.

The Trickers keswick model has really been growing on me, too hot to wear for now, but I'd like to keep an eye out for a good price, all you trickers fans, what would you consider a decent price, or whats the best price you've seen on a pair? Cheers.

Pediwear is having a sale on Trickers right now, or you can buy from Trickers factory 2nds store on eBay. And there is not much point on the price if its not your size.

Keep in mind that richard and shoehealer are willing to swap out soles on shoes at a small cost in their shop, so you can have your cake and eat it too! Richard is highly accommodating in what he offers, and offers great prices on extras

I couldn't tell you exactly - I have two pairs of 8uk tricker boots in the 4497. I also have a pair of 8.5d Barrie chukkas and 9d Barrie tankers. The 8uk 4497 are wider than these and are considered a width '5' in the uk system. I think in the MTO program you can go to a width 6, which I think would be enough in a uk8. But Richard at shoe healer will be able to give you good advice, especially if you can give him exact measurements/brannock sizing

BTW, I don't believe that Tricker's allow width variations on their bulk MTOs.
So if you wanted in, you'd need to get 4497 in a fitting 5 ("normal" width).
This is speculation on my part, but I'd guess that a EEE on Trubalance is going to translate to a fitting 6.

I have spoken to Richard and there is still a bit of uncertainty and with the hassle of dealing with oversea returns, I am still waiting for a chance to head up to a retailer (probably NYC).

Thank you for the suggestions.
