Tricker's MTO - Forum group buy - Page 48
Styleforum Top Picks
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.
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.
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.

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?

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.
that and pink suede heel counter?
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.
