Superdenim X Trickers trampers

Does anyone know where I can purchase replacement laces for some Stow's? I have seen them on Rakuten, but was hoping someone in the UK or US would also stock them.

First impressions of the barker harrisons are very favourable- i'm not an expert but leather quality seems roughly equal to my stows, although construction is slightly less robust (they don't have the extra 'collar' of leather in the shaft, for example). However i think they are a very sturdy boot, ManofKent has a pair which he says have held up well. The guy at Herring also told me they have a stormwelted waterproof lining which should be useful in London. As to sizing, i went TTS on both stows and harrisons. The barkers seem to run slightly bigger but i'm not sure it would be enough to consider sizing up/down, although i have a fairly wide foot so YMMV. with my japan-only trickersxps

As someone who owns both Barker & Tricker boots (although not Stows), I'd pretty much second what robinsongreen says. I think the leather quality on Tricker's is slightly better, but not by a huge margin (needs conditioning slightly more often), and whilst construction on the Barker's is perfectly good, the Tricker's construction is slightly better. Tricker's are purely made in England whereas I believe (but don't know for certain) that the Barker has the uppers cut in India with the construction in England. There's about £100 price difference. Is it worth it? Difficult to say - the law of diminishing returns always kicks in - I'm happy with both for the prices I paid.

I spoke too soon. Got a bill from DHL today for $40. At least they only charge $6 in fees unlike the $30 or so fedex charges.

Yeah, those are mine. Pete actually posted that earlier. Thanks.

I liked seenmys, but I wanted a darker grey, and I hate fast lacing systems.

I do actually have better pictures, but my stupid camera doesn't want to talk to my computer. Not sure what the issue is, exactly. However, I've promised a few people to post pictures and reviews, so I'll try to get that working on the weekend. The real color of the suede is not yellow cast, but more of a blue grey, and lined in navy aniline, which, at least for me, makes the boot. I like the laces, but I'd be open to suggestions (switching lacings can make for really different looks.) Anyone have any suggestions?

I've noticed that not many people talk about the 6 width when it comes to Tricker's. I tried the Tricker's not stows from Sierra Trading Post and I found the 10.5 to have the perfect length but be too narrow. I was hoping to find a domestic vendor for Tricker's to try on the 6 width but neither LeatherSoul nor that shop in New York stocks them.


So I've got a few questions.

1. Which last was the Not-Stow boot on?
2. Does anyone have any firsthand experience with the 6 width? I know the Malton and Keswick are available in 6 but I'm not too interested in playing the returns game with overseas vendors.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Lovely boots! What last are those on? What's the leather type - oiled suede? Sole unit? Cheers

List of Tricker's Retail Collaborators?
Has anyone collected a list of retailers who do collabs with Tricker's? I keep finding new ones in this thread and elsewhere. It may be handy to others to maintain such a list, as some might find that their dream custom order is already available.

To start:
The Shoe Healer
Pediwear
The Bureau
Leather Soul
Present
Nitty Gritty
Super Denim
Norse Projects
My-Wardrobe
ASOS
Challenger?

I think the last is 4497 but that's from memory.

Standard suede.

Vibram Gumlite.
