Wow @NAMOR! Those are stunning.

Nice Namor!
Mine arrived yesterday and I'm wearing em now.
Really like how they are a forest green... I was worried they would be a bit too green!
Quick & dirty iphone shots below...

Every time I convince myself I don't really need cispresso shell boots, someone posts pictures and I realize that I really do.


If only I had the willpower to stay away from this thread...

^ lock yourself in a box and turn off the wifi!!! Otherwise shoe devil will tempt endlessly

Interestingly the cipresso looks a lot like navy in indirect light. Hmmm, debating whether the colors are too much alike. I still have the cipresso punch cap boot on order...

Not to mention the navy thats due any day now :/

@meso

Youre right the green looks more earthy brown, foresty than my previous cipresso. This is an easier green to wear as the tan/forest looks good paired eith earthy tones. Previous cipresso looked "blacker"

To much overlap?? Cipresso and Navy shell


post #6263 of 7393
For me that's too much overlap. Particularly b/c they are otherwise identical (?).
But I only have room for a fairly small stable of shoes & boots (maybe 12-14 at any given time) so have to be picky...

I need to figure out my size in the cap toe boot.

I am a 7D in 1000 mile boot (fits like a freaking glove).
8D in AE 65 last (a bit tight in the toes)
9.5 Nike free 5.0

I really have no clue after reading countless threads.

What do you mean "the cap toe boot"? 4497 last? Fits TTS, UK one size apart from US.

If you have that much size variance in what you wear, you really need to try them on.
Also, "cap toe boot" is sorta meaningless without knowing which last.

Damn those Cipressos are GORGEOUS!

 

I just got my first Tricker's yesterday. Used pair of Maltons. Washed and scrubbed them for few hours to get most of the dirt & gunk off. I'm quite pleased how the broguing on the toes is placed. Definitely not my last pair. 

post #6268 of 7393
Anyone know if interesting makeups of the Tricker's low leg logger boot is being stocked anywhere?
End had some interesting ones last year, I didn't pull the trigger and have remorse...

Don't worry about the foul weather or any kind of weather as those are country boots initially made to be worn in every type of weather and terrain.
My only advise is to buy wood (raw wood) shoe trees and never wear the same leather shoes two days in the row (leather shoes need to dry especially from sweat to last long)
As for the shoe care, you have the choice between a careful care (using quality products after a good regular brushing: cleaning milk, cream like Saphir, or Grison...) or tough care (brushing then applying Obenauf's Heavy Duty shoe care once in a while... Just don't use oils or grease on your Tricker's)
whatever the choice: shoe trees, brushing the dust out of the leather and and letting the shoes "rest and breathe" are the key to a long lasting relationship between your feet and your Tricker's!

 

So I just received my second pair of Tricker's, a pair of Acorn Stowes, with natural welt and Dainite soles. I'd like to go the "tough care" route with these, but a question on this: I have a bottle of Obenauf's Oil on hand. Should I not use this and only use the LP instead? I would have thought the LP would just be a thickened version of the oil.

 

I really like the boots, but I'd actually prefer it if they darkened up a bit. Does anyone have suggestions? I don't want to mess around with these too much other than putting a coat of oil on.

 

Next up: a Coffee Eaton from Richard the Shoe Healer.

Obeanauf's will darken them, although I have to say, the shade may not be to your liking.
Try it out on a small, out of the way area on the tongue first.
For this reason my lighter boots strictly see only very thin amounts of Saphir neutral cream every 6 months max.
