i really like this pattern for a make up, especially in a tonal mixed media shoe. could be v cool with pebbled leather, smooth calf/shell, and suede in a a brown scheme.

union made did a make up with alden in a similar fashion that i really liked.

I like it too.
this would require rather 4444 last, and flat welt smile.gif

I'll be game for a toe cap shoe in brown calf/scotch grain on 4444 last.

i'm in too!

just a quick word on calf here...i'm all for calf but I like the idea of doing shell vs pebble grain also. for these mixed media make ups, there is less of an upcharge on shell as each pair only requires one indiviudual shell, vs the 2 you would need if you did a make up entirely of shell.

How the mixed media going to be laid out?
I think putting the 'saddle' style might work for more people...
Tricker's shell IMO is not worth the upcharge, who knows if they even consider 'half order' than usual for mixed media.

i'm not opposed to a saddle, but i think the above cap toe is much more unique and has more potential, but that's my personal opinion. regarding the shell pricing, the only reason i know that is because i've done it in the past, but i think it's a little bit on the hush hush.

Hello all, first post- lurked here a while now. I emailed recently with Richard at Shoehealer regarding the Lollipop red Eaton MTO. He very graciously answered my questions and suggested I look here as well. I'd be in for this group buy, if it was as close to this as possible.

New to this thread and very interested in the MTO. However, also new to Trickers--that is, I don't own any. How best to compare the 4497 last?

Best fitting Alden last for me is the Leydon....
post #686 of 1240
I would say I am a true 9.5, 9 on the Barrie, I wear 9UK on the 4497. It has quite a bit more volume than the Barrie last, but it is not any longer. Some guys do size down a full size though...
post #687 of 1240

The 4497s last isn't particularly long, but generally more voluminous in depth and width than a dress shoe.

 

 

Tricker's refers to their UK sizes as being .5 below US, but in the case of the 4497s, regard it as 1 size below your Leydon size and you will most likely do fine.

 

 

Having a short and wide foot, the 4497s last almost feels bespoke for me. Only a slight increase in arch support would improve its fit.

I agree. I'm a 'true' US9D (measured), 8.5D on the Barrie and UK8.5 (5 fitting) on the 4497S, i.e. Stow. However, I take a UK8 on the 4444, i.e. Bourton.

I tried going down a full size US/UK to compensate for the added volume and width of the 4497S, but it just ended up being too short, all while still being voluminous. 1/2 size conversion works best for me, worn with thicker socks. Ankles are held firmly in place with plenty of wiggle room for the toes. I just use a full length gel insole the few times they're worn with thinner socks.

Thanks for the sizing input. The Barrie last is really voluminous on my heel, but fine in the fore/mid foot. It's hard for me to imagine being able to comfortably wear a last that is actually any bigger, even w/ adjustments for socks or heel inserts.

Would it be frowned upon for a new member to declare interest in this order?

 

(I completely understand if so).
