I dont care about point scoring

I'm reluctant to try Tricker's as their brown zug is 'slightly oiled' - can be difficult to maintain. If they don't look right, then I'll return. It does concern me that the rats appears to be leaving a sinking ship!
I gave you a link where you can get AS country line in the previous post
Trickers are great and good quality shoes, i highly recommend

I know I was told by someone at a social gathering that this brand was a reputable high end brand. I have usually relied on my wife for shoe buying - she knew my baseline requirements simple as they were, i.e., that they must have laces and be black or brown , but that was it
for several reasons I now want to make my own decisions and when I googled this name and I got what I described in my original thread- which was not much my question to this forum -which is google's favourite- is very simple : is this brand worth it for high end shoes or should I go look somewhere else? No bull please, I have enough troubles
AS is good high end shoes, look into EG, Lobb, G&G, Rider Boot co, basically go to www.leffot.com
to find what you want in high end
