Tricker's MTO - Forum group buy - Page 68

post #1006 of 1234
I wear US8.5D in Barrie lasted shoes and either an 8.5D or 9D in Barrie lasted boots (the difference is basically thin socks vs thick socks)

I find 4497 lasted boots in UK8 is a perfect fit, just a tiny fraction smaller than a Barrie 9D boot, I can wear thick or thin socks comfortably. I suspect it comes down to a width issue as to whether you go 1/2 down or full down.

the issue, here, is working out the conversion from US to UK sizes, and that's where i disagree with tricker's.  

 

they suggest that you size down only a half size from your TTS US size.  whereas i know many people who actually drop down one full size from their TTS US size.  

 

that's why i say, it's best to have a good reference for what your actual TTS UK size is with some other british shoe brands.  if you're clear on what your TTS UK size is, then the guidance that tricker's gives on its various lasts make perfect sense.

 

the exceptions here are if you have a high instep, wide feet, prefer chunky socks on roomier fit, etc . . .

 

Heterophilous I took your advise and went down a full size to 6 UK and wow these fit way better than my first pair,

nice and snug with little room for thick socks but my heals feel amazing.

 

I typically wear a 7.5 US and I went down to a 6.5 UK (7 US) on my first Tricker's boots, well I now have the feeling that I will love this new pair more due to a better fit.

 

The second picture is a comparison between the new 1001 Burnished 6 UK and old Black stow 6.5 UK.

The old runs way too long and the toe is not where it should be, I am kinda considering selling the black pair

as well as my Loake monks in exchange for the same versions but in a 6 UK, or I will try some thick socks first

and see if can live with slightly bigger shoes!

happy to be of help.

 

what last are those Stows on?  the 4497s or 4444?

 

i would advise UK 6.5 on the 4497s, and UK 6 on 4444.

 

if you dropped down 1 1/2 sizes from US size on the 4497s, that's a bit interesting to hear.

 

4497s should fit TTS . . .

Oh both stow boots are on 4497 Last.

 

Maybe I am a 7 after all, the 6 UK on 4497 last feel more in control.

I often have the need to wear tough Desert Boots and I would like to put in an order with Richard at Shoe Healer for what, in my mind, would be the ultimate boot for my requirements.

 

As I will be wearing these in the kind of places where one doesn’t want to draw attention to detail, I am not looking for a “bling” fashion boot.  I want a discreet, top quality, boot.

 

Here are the specs that I propose:

 

Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.
Gaucho Repello Suede.
Mushroom Binding.
Natural Barbour Welt.
Brown Dainite Sole.
Vintage Green Calf Lining.
Brown Pull Loops.
Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.
Leather Laces.

 

Simple, beautiful.

 

I have posted a couple of images of suede Burfords, with ski-hooks (in other colours) and some of Stows in the Gaucho Repello.

 

Richard has said that the waiting times are growing, so if you would like a beautiful late-spring/early summer Desert Boot, please let me know as soon as you can.

 

There is already some interest ... we only need 3 more!

 

If you are interested, or if you have any questions about the boot, please contact Richard at Shoe Healer: info@shoehealer.co.uk

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Dear All,

 

I proposed a Group Buy MTO Desert Boot a few weeks ago .... there are three orders, we need three more.

 

Please let Richard at Shoe Healer know if you are interested otherwise, sadly, this MTO will sink.

 

The spec:

 

Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.
Gaucho Repello Suede.
Mushroom Binding.
Natural Barbour Welt.
Brown Dainite Sole.
Vintage Green Calf Lining.
Brown Pull Loops.
Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.
Leather Laces.

 

Here is a picture of one in a different colour:

 

 

and a Stow in Gaucho:

Merry Christmas

Hi guys,

I just took delivery of a Trickers MTO I had Shoe Healer make up a few months back for me.

Absolutely gorgeous dark brown two tone Golosh Longwing Brogues.

They are made on the 81 last.

Red leather lining.

Dainite soles.

They look amazing teamed with dark jeans.

The good news is there are still some available.

- UK 7 1/2
- UK 8
- UK 9

Call Richard directly at +44 1302 329 965

Is anyone up for another Eaton in Iris Cordovan?

I missed the last MTO for this boot and cannot find it anywhere.

Very tempted, I bottled old MTO too. I am however on fence on this. Still waiting for Acorn cap toe MTO to be delivered. Just throwing it out there, how about Iris Cordovan Stows or Cotto Cordovan Burford?

If its the stow & commando sole, count me in
post #1018 of 1234
Question on all the MTO group buys - if I need a wider fitting, does that still work for the group buy, or am I out of luck?
post #1019 of 1234
I seem to recall that they had to all be the same width.
It was mentioned towards the beginning of this thread.


BTW, got an email from Richard.
Teak cordo Alans are delayed.

Sorry, I have not been logged inn for almost two months. Just returned since I got an e-mail from Richard at Shoe Healer today that the Eaton bulk MTO has arrived and ready to be delivered, so I guess I`m ready for another order.

I appreciate that you would ask Richard if he could reserve a pair for me but that`s to late now I guess :-) I will ask him tomorrow if he ordered a few extra for his store, and maybee one of those pairs fit me.

 

If not,  I`am ready for a new MTO as soon as there is something I fancy showing up in this tread.

 

A happy new year and in tweed we trust :-)

 

Ravn
