Although none of my Trickers shoes and boots are in Espresso, I believe the general recommendation for this colour is to use black polish.

Would like you guys opinions on how to polish the boot and still maintain the color. Which product/color should be used?

Much thanks. 

My pair of espressos came with a tin of Tricker's dark brown which is just rebranded Saphir.

Saphir reno isn't going to strip the color.
You really only need to worry about removing the burnishing when it's something like the Coffee burnished where they use some black over the lighter brown. But it's also easy enough to put it back on with some black polish.

Got this pair to see if it was cordovan (black / cipresso version) and it is, so this pair probably is shell as well

The suede over crepe/redbrick ones that goldlabelny seems to have cornered the market on?
You can see "Bourton" written on some of the boxes so 4444.

I have been following this this for a few weeks now and have enjoyed the pictures and information on the various Trickers models. I haven't put my hands on a Trickers boot or shoe yet so I am looking for some comparison info. I am interested in a boot with the Commando sole. I have tried on an Alden with the commando sole and am looking for a comparison to the Trickers boot. From what I read on one of the early pages (around 200 I think) the commando on the Trickers is thicker than Alden and maybe a little more stiff. I am looking for what is the overall more comfortable boot to walk on all day long Trickers Stow on commando versus and Alden commando boot. Anyone have both and have an overall comfort level to share.

thanks in advance

In general the Tricker's are a bit stiffer when new and maybe a little heavier than Aldens. They might take a little longer to break in.
Comfort is so subjective it's really going to depend on your feet.
Neither one is more comfortable than the other.

I have alden indy cordovan in commando sole and tricker's stow in commando sole, I do think tricker's is more comfortable
