I had those on my watch list, well done. They weren't my size but a friend has been interested in upgrading his shoe collection.

I wouldn't worry too much about that stain. I've got some Sanders Cheltenhams and on the very first day I wore them my youngest dropped a sugary, fried German cake-thing on one, leaving a greasy stain. Water didn't remove it, and no shoe care product made any real difference. But with time, it went away on its own.

 

That was about 5 years ago, and since then those boots have become travel boots and have lived a really hard life. Once after filling a vehicle with diesel, the pump glugged (after removing the nozzle) and spewed a load of diesel on the same pair, another ugly stain, and this time massive. I considered chucking them away, but yet again, time took the stain away (and even the smell).

 

I've got some Trickers in the same colour as yours and wouldn't be happy with the stain either, I'd probably try and remove as much as possible with a few cycles of rubbing with a damp rag, then let time do its thing.

Hey guys, new member here hoping you can help me out. I bought a pair of Tricker's Bourton Brogues from End clothing last week and absolutely love them. Unfortunately, I'm stupid and managed to spill coffee at my desk today and some splashed onto the vamp of my left shoe. There's now a discoloration where the coffee splashed (looks like a slightly darker circle surrounded by a lighter colored ring). You can see a picture below - the point of the wingtip points right to what I am describing.

 

Can anyone give me some advice on how best to erase that mark? I'd appreciate any tips!


Its a real pain when you get a mark on a lighter coloured leather like Acorn. As others have said it should improve a lot with time and brushing. However, I have found that an application of saddle soap sometimes helps to remove this type of stain.

For those of you who love the monkey boot the Tricker's outlet shop at Gloucester Quays has some boots in blue cordovan on a commando sole with a natural welt. Price is only £280 including the VAT which sounds like a hell of a good price if they are first quality but looks as if they only have UK sizes 6-8. Link below:

I just ordered some Bourtons in burnished burgundy calf from them.

It's not a massive blemish but they would qualify as seconds for me - seen much less than that on seconds I have bought in factory shops. But, after three wears you will probably inflict worse yourself anyway!

So I went with a pair of Stow. I do love them. Very fine boots. Trying not to scuff them. I'd suggest going 1/2 size down for from US to UK sizes.

Very Nice!!!!!!! @happy hooligan

I'm in the midst of debating on whether to get the Stow boots or the Bourton shoes. Sizing is making me nervous - I emailed Trickers directly, telling them my shoe size (usually US 11.5 - 12), and that I have a new pair of Grenson Archies, which are UK 10. The Trickers rep said he'd usually recommend the half size down, as you say, but felt that the Stow and Bourton were pretty well aligned with the Grenson Archies, so I would be safe going with a UK 10. I actually even have a bit of extra room in the shoes and could have gone with 9.5. The US/UK equivalency shoe size charts that I see are really all over the board. Zappos says that UK size 10 is US size 12. But other charts give it as US size 11. So confusing.

All my Tricker's are 8.5 UK; I'm a 9.5 US/42.5 European, so I'd definitely go for your US size minus 1 (or 1.5, if you don't mind a snug fit - I have wide feet though).

post #6670 of 7378
I'm a 9.5 - 10 US and somewhat narrow. Stows in 8.5 UK fit really well with a thin insert. Hope that helps.
post #6671 of 7378
For anyone interested - the vendor kindly agreed the Stows should be seconds and we struck a deal so I'm keeping them. A few coats of Sapphir and the leather is already taking on a nice glow. I find them comfortable and supportive out of the box and I love the unashamedly "country" last shape.

They're about to get a week of hard use in the Welsh countryside; let's set how they hold up.
post #6672 of 7378

If it's any help, I've got Stows on 4497s last UK 7 1/2 and Logger boots on 4444 last size 7. Both fit well. The 4444 is a bit tighter for me, but certainly OK. I have Bourton 7 1/2 on 4444 and OK with a thick sock but I would go for a size 7 next time probably. I've also got some Ilkley's on a 4444 last and they are massive. Have to wear two socks.

 

I was measured on the Brannock in the Crockett & Jones store and they said I was an 8 but when I tried on some shoes there I ended up going with two pairs in 7 1/2, which have been a good comfortable fit.

Lollipop.

Hmm. Now I'm getting concerned about ordering a size 10, but I suppose I can always return them for a larger or smaller size, if the fit isn't right. Huge pain, though. I have a very wide foot, so the 4444 should be a good fit for me. The Grensons are fantastic for someone with my foot shape - VERY comfortable. I'm hoping that the Trickers will be just as good.

I think you'll be good sizing the same as the Grensons.
