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.

i think navy blue, tan (mushroom?) or white probably, no?

Hi Mr.Chorizo,

I forgot to mention in my last message that Richard suggested sticking with white binding rather than a contrasting binding in the "wrong" shade.I don't think another colour would  be possible anyway,given that we can only have 2 colours/materials.

I'd be happy with a white leather brogue on the 4444 last,tan lining,pink suede heel,pink or blue pull-tab and Commando soles.I'd prefer brown soles but I could live with black!The eyelets and laces in white and a natural leather Barbour welt would be fine with me but I wouldn't want white suede anywhere on the shoe,for reasons of practicality.

Anyone else out there interested?

Hello figured I'd ask here to see if I could spark any interest. Would there be a group of people interested in a Tricker's MTO of a shoe similar to one built by LS a year or so back the Keswick for Denim model. I'll post a couple images below to refresh your memory, and if we get enough interest I can get in contact with everyone and get more concrete details about the build.

I would be interested.

Cool CHRK33 2/6 with potential interest. I was just thinking these might look extra sharp with brass eyelets too.

Brass eyelets sound good to me. Maybe a lighter edge trim as well.

We are looking at the color combo I posted a few posts above two tone Blue and Coffee Burnished. Still brainstorming slight tweaks brass eyelets, lighter edge trim, pull tab...I think this should have good appeal as it's a very wearable color combination but unique at the same time.

New MTO ideas:


As suggested by zippyh:
Last: 4444
Color: Navy Calf
Welt: Natural barbour welt
Eyelets: Brass
Sole: Red dainite

Comments:
I prefer other color for the sole, I'm indifferent for materials, but recently I bought few pairs with red dainite, but I know I have been convinced to get red dainite few times.

I'm sure for upper color, there'll be more ideas, I don't have navy blue boots yet, so this is still game for me, if we're looking for late summer delivery we can have suede boots or something similar.

Edit: New insight from Pitti
New dainities...


See leather options (blue pebble grain on vamps below)

I had just emailed Richard over the weekend about a navy Stow, but I like this better. I agree on the sole--I'd probably prefer blue Dainite, but red wouldn't be a deal-breaker.
post #735 of 1172
The Navy Dainite could look really cool I was wanting to do a color, but thought red would be too random for since it was a two tone shoe already the new soles from Pitti solve that issue. We got the interest head count up to 4/6 people in a couple days things are looking good. Once we hit the required 6 people I'll get in contact with shoe healer and get the costs and stuff for the build and hopefully we can get this little MTO rolling.
