Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread - Page 246

post #3676 of 4669
Btw, I visited the Trickers shop in Northampton a couple months ago and it was one of the coolest experiences in my life. I didn't expect to visit the factory floor but upon arrival I was escorted to the back of the building to visit the showroom and chat with David, the guy who posts the eBay auctions. The moment I stepped into the factory I immediately felt like a kid in wonka's factory. Rows of machinery, stacks of partially made shoes, shelves of completed boots; it was awesome. Then at 4 pm, each every worker poured out of that building. It didn't seem like anyone of those cordwainers were interested in working a single second more than they had to

Yeah it's a lot clearer in real life the green, photos look a bit weird since I tried a bunch of angles and these were the only ones that showed the green. Otherwise just a black longwing to most people

Lots of Trickers on Sierra Trading Post.

With their 30% off orders over $75 deal, the prices don't seem too bad.

For those of us wondering where has Tricker's website has gone, it's finally back online.

I wanted to repost this makeup as we are 1 order away from making it happen. I know there is at least one other person out there who wants this boot

 

 

Allan boot in Teck cordovan
Red lining & red pull tab
Brass eyelets
Mid Brown binding along the edge of the facings
Natural Barbour welt
Red Dainite sole




Here is a pic of the Allan boot
 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 




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.

 

Please shoot me a PM if you are interested. There is a price increase coming August 1st, but Richard has agreed to hold the price.

great price for shell boot. i assuming its cheaper on account of that the shell is not horween. the trickers shell is awesome nonetheless

Re-posting this makeup as well working with Richard at shoehealer. Only need 1 more to get the group MTO going and I know there is one more person out there that wants a boot like this.

 

Price quoted was 412.50 GBP excluding Vat and he pays shipping (495 GBP to those in EU w/ VAT as there is one person from Germany in on this).

 

This is the mock up I proposed:

 

Tricker's Eaton Model (w/ no medallion on toe)
Iris Cordovan Leather
Silver Eyeletts
Red Lining
Red pull loop
Red dainite sole
Natural Welt
Fashion Yellow Laces
4497 Last
 
Was also informed prices across the board for stock and MTO are going up effective August 1st (but Richard has locked in the low price if I get get this organized in the next couple weeks), so let's get on this order. ~ $650 or so Iris Shell Cordovan Boots!! 100 GBP (~$155) deposit and rest due in 10-12 weeks when they are done. No returns so know your size. 
 
PM Me if you want aboard - Only need 1 more and its a go!
 
Think Something Like This, but with silver eyeletts. (sorry about the photo edit job):

 

True color of shell is more like this real boot:

Nice!

 

I'm starting to wonder if orange dainite and orange liner/pull tab would look better on my iris makeup?

Nice.
Curious though.
Are those Dainite brand soles or are they Itshide?

Only reason I ask is the blue sole Keswicks at LS are on Itshide.

Edit to add: I see that the Frans Boone ones with orange soles are Itshide.

While I won't be participating in the MTO (seeing as I have iris Eatons) I think orange will contrast a little less with a natural barbour welt. Both orange and red would look awesome with Iris though! The red liner is very vivid on their offerings, orange would be a little more subdued imo.
