Impulse pickup: Tricker's Brad boots in suede w/crepe sole. These won't look properly boot-like until they get some miles on em.

They look great!

 

Never had a crepe sole before.  I'm particularly hard on my toe tips and heels so I would imagine I might wear them down quickly.

Thanks! I've never had a crepe sole either. These are a bit of an experiment. I got another pair of Tricker's with a lightweight sole from Inventory and have been liking them more than expected. So we will see if these grow on me too!

Oh my!  Have you seen the new MTO stows at Pediwear?

 

One of the best looking Stows I have seen!

I've had a pair and since I have the same way as EnglishShoes of "eating" the sole tips they didn't last three month , those soles are nice to walk on but the are frail as a pencil eraser plus the have this awful tendency to act as sponges and bring in the outside crap everywhere with you, great way to taint your or other people's home specially if they have a niiiice carpet.

Hey @MSAINT

 

As you suffer from the same sole issues as me, how do you get on with the tips of the double leather soles?  How do they wear on you?

 

I tend to go for Dainite and would love some Commando Stows but I am wondering if I am missing out on double leather..

Screwed steel toe taps & Top Sem sole are the perfect solution against ravaging the tip toe and against slippery floors





The wearing is contained with the steel even if it's scary to see how fast I wear those 3mm of steel.

Dainite has a good resistance (the black original Dainite is tougher than the blue, green or yellow "Dainite" Commando soles)

Another example on my girlfriend's vintage UK cops leather boots:

Ahh, Topy and taps.

 

We tend to only go for one or the other in the UK.  Having both is known as "The French sole treatment" over here;

I think I would probably go for taps/plates only as the rest of the sole wears fairly normally.

Well... I'm French!

I had guessed - your location was a bit of a give-away!

 

Great collection of boots by the way.  Very jealous!

Heads up on a cheap pair of Tricker's shell cordo longwings size 8 UK on the 2298 last (unaffiliated/not my auction).
