They look fantastic, NAMOR. Glad to see that they ended up in good hands (feet).

These are great for hiking and I almost felt a sense of regret taking them to the mountains. They can appear rugged, but they look great in office wear. Thanks again!

You can spend a lot more for shoes that are "higher end", but the quality/fit may not be worth that incremental price difference.

I agree with you guys. At the end of the day you its about what looks best to you. Once you begin spending $500 on a pair of shoes, you are making a conscious investment in your apperance and to say that one look is better than the other is just silly.

Thanks

Trickers have a different austetic that isnt better or worse than Alden. Just different. If you have too much of one or the other, switiching it up can be fun. Quality-wise, I would say they are just about the same. I would give the slight edge to Trickers just because I have never had the stiching issues with them while several pairs of Aldens have come apart in the vamp, heel, etc after just a few wears. An ebay'er from the UK offers a various trickers for about $400ish. Also, Sierra Trading Post has them. Of course you also have the online UK retailiers like Bereau Belfast that ship to U.S.

Thanks, Uncle. I followed the break-in procedure, which was most helpful. Perfect comfort and just started hour 14 wearing (as I finally head home for the day).

Haven't even laced these guys up yet. Cigar captoe boots, Grant last, commando sole. Very stoked.

Mine came in today. Laced only one of them up to give a quick try. This is my first Grant lasted shoe and think I'm going to like it.
Beautiful boot

LS sells Trickers as does Grahame Fowler in NY.
