I have some Lexol and saphir renovateur (haven't applied either yet but I have been periodically wiping the area down with a damp rag. There's still a noticeable spot that is bugging me.

For the stain I recommend saphir renomat. While I don't know about coffee, it's designed to remove stains from leather, and I've used it to successfully strip old polish.

I haven't conditioned but I sprayed them with nano protector. It seems to do a pretty decent job waterproofing -- I haven't worn the boots in the rain but the spot on our outdoor (wooden) staircase where I sprayed them beads water off when it rains!

Hi 

 

I just got back from holiday so i thought id add the pictures of both my Trickers - Patina collection by luxace.com.

IMHO proof that fake patina can make even great shoes look terrible.

These are signed by "Atelier Paulus Bolten" (Paris, France) who done the patina, a limited run done for luxace.

For balance, I think those patinas are fantastic!  Especially on the shoes.

Yes, as you've made clear when exclusively posting to plug luxace... hmmm. uhoh.gif

Yeah of course, I have some limited edition Trickers by END clothing also so it was nice to add something different to my collection.

Definitely not feeling those Tricker's. In my opinion, it makes the aesthetics look a bit cheap. Maybe it would work better on some more formal lasts, but not on Tricker's rugged boots/shoes. Also, I would hate to buy a boot made out of high quality and unique leathers, just to have it "painted" over. Of course to each their own. . .as long as you enjoy them that is all that matters.

It may be a case of if you don't have anything positive to say, don't say it. Clearly, a lot of money have been paid for these shoes,  perhaps it is best to reflect on how you would feel if you had a couple of pairs of new shoes and someone posted something so negative. 

 

I like them and would love to own them. Yours, Munky.

The shoe patina reminds me a bit of the walnut shell cordovan bourtons that Re-Tricker's has up for auction right now..

What if someone paid a lot of money for gear someone else didn't like? The very thought of it, on a forum for expressing taste and dissecting such differences, is worrisome.

I'm also not a fan of the patina on these two pairs. I understand that others will like them and that's ok, taste is generally subjective.

post #6720 of 7394

I've seen a number of Tricker's make ups over the years that I wasn't crazy about, but I'd never make a snarky comment to someone who apparently liked them. It's one thing to have an opinion - everyone online has one - but a gentleman knows when to keep his mouth shut. Mouthing off your opinion is hardly the highest virtue on the forum...
