Please let Richard at Shoe Healer know if you are interested otherwise, sadly, this MTO will sink.

 

The spec:

 

Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.
Gaucho Repello Suede.
Mushroom Binding.
Natural Barbour Welt.
Brown Dainite Sole.
Vintage Green Calf Lining.
Brown Pull Loops.
Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.
Leather Laces.

 

Here is a picture of one in a different colour:

 

 

and a Stow in Gaucho:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Merry Christmas

Dear All,

 

Happy New Year.

 

Sadly, we don't seem to have enough interest in this MTO.  I might start saving and go for it anyway, but it looks like we might have to forget it as a group order.

 

However, if three more interested fellows show up I am sure that we can resurrect the deal.  One person has suggested a Commando sole alternative .... certainly possible!

 

All best,

MM

There is a sale at Norse Projects store at the moment, and they have some really nice Trickers on offer for £238/USD $309, unfortunately none in my size so just posting it for other Trickers fans to have a loot at. Marron and Black with Dainite soles.

Teak cordovan from Superdenim. They're on the 4444.

Those are stunning!  How do you find the heel cup on Trickers shoes?  I have a narrow heel and can wear trickers boots but not sure I can wear a shoe.

post #4118 of 4475
Thanks unipair guy.
Yeah, I have narrow heels and low instep and can have a problem with 4444 last shoes.
Plus the double sole is so stiff when new, I get some heel slip.
With boots it's not really an issue.

Thank you for the information.  The more I wear the two pairs of trickers boots I have the more I want to buy.  Do you see any noticeable difference between alden/carmina cordovan and trickers cordovan?

post #4120 of 4475

silly question, is there a brick and mortar in the u.s. where i can try these on?

post #4121 of 4475
The Comipel cordovan Tricker's uses is thinner than the Horween. It doesn't seem to get the same kind of big wavy ripples with wear the way Horween does. It's almost calf-like. But it's nice enough. As you may be able to tell, I have enough shoes that I don't get a whole lot of wear on any pair but the one other pair of Tricker's cordovan I have are holding up nicely. They're a couple years old now.

I'm willing to pay the premium price for Tricker's cordovan if it's a style I really like but it's not a no-brainer like it would be with Alden.
Besides, where else are you going to get orange cordovan boots?

By "these" I assume you mean Tricker's.
Leather Soul in Honolulu and Beverly Hills.
Grahame Fowler in NYC.
I think Jack Straw in Seattle carries (or has carried) a few models.

yes, Tricker's in general, i'd like to get some idea on sizing.

 

thank you.

post #4124 of 4475

Thank you again Zippyh.  I have one green suede boot and one parisian blue calf.  I would like to get some trickers cordovan to round out the collection.  Those boots look a little lighter than my Alden #4 cordovan.

post #4125 of 4475
Nice #4's.
The teak is probably closer to Ravello. Not as red as #4.
