Hi, new to Tricker's.  Looking for my first pair. Considering the Stow Country Boot in Espresso.  In the Trickers.com checkout process I was expecting the 65 GBP tax to be deducted since I am ordering from and shipping to the US.  However the deduction doesn't seem to be happening.  Do they deduct it after the transaction?  Do they not deduct it at all?

 

Thanks in advance!

Shoe Healer is the go to guy for Tricker's. Free ship and free trees with stock models. He'll ship via postal service upon request which drastically lowers your chances of having to pay the 8.5% or so duty.
Pediwear is another good option. They offer free shipping and include trees. You get 5% discount on future Tricker's too. Not sure, but I think they might ship via postal service too upon request.
No charges for VAT for USA for either.

Hey thanks for the advice.  Just to confirm, trickers.com does not deduct the vat for US orders??

Honestly have no idea if Trickers.com deducts VAT although I'd guess they do. Their ebay store refunds VAT after purchase.

Does anyone know why most of the shoes from the Retricker eBay shop have a pale/natural welt?  Have they been made just for the factory shop?  If so, do they use a lower grade leather for these boots?

 

Next question - is it easy to properly recolour these welts with an edge dressing?  Anyone done this?

I'm guessing that it's because a lot of them are special make ups. A lot f the collaborations that they do with stores have natural welts. Certainly not lower quality. I think I'm correct in saying that a large proportion on MTO feature natural welts. Here are my Woodstocks from Shoehealer image.jpeg 1337k .jpeg file

You have to read the descriptions, and look at the photos carefully. Many are offered "new with defects", the defects can sometimes be easy to ignore, or hard to live with.

Yes you are correct Jorge. They may have defects, but I am pretty sure they are not made with "lower grade leather" as Englishshoes asked. I have never bought from the eBay store, mainly because I have not been fortunate enough to find something I like in my size.

FTR reading the descriptions is generally useless, as they don't specify what the defects or flaws are.

Do they give an honest description of the defect of you contact the seller?

 

I've noticed that they use the same photos across a range of sizes.  i.e. they might suddenly get 4 pairs of the same style in different sizes, like Acorn Stow with commando sole.  They then have an individual posting for size 8, 10, 11, 12 but all these adverts use the same photos.

I can't speak from experience Englishshoes but they seem to have a pretty good reputation. Their feedback on eBay seems pretty good and the negatives are about not answering emails etc, not about product quality. I agree with Sjmin that the descriptions don't get you that far. If you've got a pair that you're interested in them I would email, or even better I think you can phone. I'm sure some guys on here have direct experience of buying from them. Maybe they can help.

The retricker ebay dude (David?) is pretty responsive.
The photes aren't always useful since they often use the same set of phots for multiple pairs.

I've purchased many pairs of seconds from them. Only one pair did I consider sending back. It was a pair of Stows where the punches on the medallion weren't complete. I ended up using an exacto knife to finish the job. A bit fiddly but looked fine after.
A couple pairs had the stamp indicating they were seconds but darned if I could figure out what the defect was. Several other pairs were sold as seconds but did not have the stamp nor any obvious defect.

In my experience, they will describe the defects if you email them. They don't always respond, however. Also, they sometimes respond after the shoes have sold.
