Also on parade: Grassmere in calf!

First day out with the Tricker's Golosh after retrieving them from the cobbler (steel toe taps & Top Sem sole)
The 4444 is really a generous last, I've sized 1/2 size down from my usual 6.5 in 4497S and still, the heels are quite roomy, winter socks will no doubt make this feeling disappear.

Teak cordovan. This pair is really susceptible to the little welts.

Big shout out to Richard and Ann at Shoe Healer - they have been able to track down these medium brown laces like @MSAINT has on his END Toecaps which look great. 

 

Very friendly and knowledgeable team at Shoe Healer.  I'll be sending my boots there for a resole when the time comes.

Richard and Ann are the best persons to deal with indeed!
And if you don't find the color you're looking for there's still the cotton waxed I sourced from the Bay, so cheap and nice that I buy them in bulk! => http://www.ebay.fr/itm/151447041924
Also, for boots like the Stow hight I prefer 100 cm shoelaces to avoid the "rabbit ears" syndrome , but with 9 wholes like in the Parade, the 110/120 cm provided by Tricker's are just fine! (and more durable as they are heavy poly-cotton)

Those are awesome and beautiful boots, here are mine:












I managed to get one pair on eBay for 151 GBP from reTrickers. Really great pair of shoes!

@MSAINT Please could you post a link of where to buy that edge dressing/sealant that you use to get your welts nice and shiny?  Is there an eBay or Amazon link?

 

The last link you posted seemed to list various different products and I couldn't see where to buy it.

 

Many thanks!

Well I buy the wax it from a shop for professionals in brick and mortar in Paris (they don't sell online and the truth is that m0m0ne gives it to me when needed), the link I posted was for illustration purpose, as was the picture.

You should mail or call Richard at Shoehealer to see if he can point you to the equivalent product available in the UK and maybe even to a online store that sells this edge sole "cold" wax.

I went hunting for that cold wax online too, with no luck.

Maybe check with your cobbler... Or Richard if you're in the UK
The sole wax also exists on a stick form (Transparent, brown and black)

@EnglishShoes @Olderfellow I found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Fiebings-Black-Edge-Kote-Oz/dp/B004303LMC

Fiebing's products are US Made => http://shop.fiebing.com/c/leathercraft_edge-finishes?pp=25 A wild guess is that's exactly the same type of product I use, only on a smaller container

Also found Edge Bright 1137099.jpg => http://www.nueraproducts.co.uk/leather-shoes.html

Finally, a link in English to see how it's made traditionally (with hot waxes) => http://carreducker.blogspot.fr/2010/11/ink-and-wax.html

You can buy Sapir Edge Dressing Cream from A Fine Pair of Shoes.  It works very well on scuffed sole edges. However, it doesn't produce a shine.

I have a feeling, though, that this isn't what you are after...  Munky

Edge dressing? With the fragrance from the Golden Age of the iGent.

To think that Brits used to get by applying a little kiwi or cherry blossom...

A bit like women staining their legs when there were no nylons available during the second world war.

@EnglishShoes, I could send some to you, but I'm afraid it won't be a bargain considering the shipping costs from France...
