what kind of color contrast were you thinking...put it all together! is there a make up you know of that has this?

Kind of just been bouncing ideas in my head nothing I've seen before. Options maybe doing a more conventional leather main body color like the Acorn Calf leather...then pick a suede heel counter to key off a red dainite sole. It would make our MTO unique and quite noticeable to someone who knows Trickers, but does not make it so off the wall you can wear them for any occasion. Just my two cents I'd def be willing to get involved in the brainstorming of the next build though. Maybe see if anyone is half decent at photoshop and could mockup a couple ideas.

Hi Everyone,

I think you are only allowed to have 2 colours/materials in Tricker's MTO deals from Shoehealer so although a mixture of smooth leather,tumbled leather and suede could look great,it might not be possible.Last year Richard from Shoehealer gave me this information when I  was thinking

about a grey leather/tumbled/suede Burford MTO.

I would be interested in a contrast panel on the heel in almost any of the colours shown and suggested so far.

so...i propose

white suede burton, pink suede heel counter.

4444 last OR 81 last (81 is sleeker, more refined. their longwings are done on these and look great).

360 natural welt, natural edge trim.

matched white eyelets.

commando sole.

white pullttab, though open to other colors here as well.

another option would be to use white calf leather as teh main upper, and use pink suede as the contrast on the heel counter.

mr chorizo, you know the brand better than I do, I think.  Is there a pattern other than the shortwing that you think might work?

 

I vote for a contrasting pull tab, maybe black?

 

My only reservation is sizing as I have no experience with Trickers.

I'd probably have to pass on a white suede build up denim too important to me, and the bleed off would drive me nuts haha.

i ONLY wear raw denim, but i cuff it so i don't have a ton of break in the hem and i persaonally don't realy mind scuffing up suede shoes. how about would white calf be better then?

here is an image with of the white calf...i think the pop of pink would be cool with a blue pull tab?

Hello,

If we are to have a white shoe I would definitely prefer one in leather-especially with the kind of "summer" we often have in the U.K!

I like the example in the photo and think it would look good with a pink suede heel.Any ideas for the lining colour?

Probably going to have to pass on a white shoe would never get worn...to me a white leather shoe just exudes Peewee Herman. I'll def keep an eye just to see how the MTO develops though best of luck.

i''d just say something simple, like tan for the lining. i wonder if you could do a pink binding, that would look pretty cool (the binding is the "edge" of the leather under the lace stays and by the opening at the ankle).

thoughts on pull tab? I think white, pink, or blue....

i'm down for natural welt/edge, commando sole.

i also stumbled upon this image from Pitti, which shoes what the factory can do with mixed media. If we are indeed doing white leather, i think it would be cool to have the interior of the side perforations be white suede (in this image, it's the chocolate suede area surrounded by pebble leather)



that and pink suede heel counter?

Hello,

I'm not sure if you can have pink binding-though I assume pink suede shoes have it so it may also be possible on a leather shoe.I will e-mail Richard at Shoehealer and ask him.

post #720 of 1126

Hello Everyone,I asked Richard from Shoehealer about colours for the binding and he told me that pink is not available.The available colours are

C shade,Navy blue,black,mushroom,coffee,red,dark green,mid-brown,dark brown and white.

Incidentally,he said a group of Trickers/Shoehealer Monkey boots will be shown on their website this Wednesday.There will be several colours but very limited numbers for each colour.
