    I'm not aware of an image that shows the different lasts, but The Shoe Healer has some information here--

    https://www.shoehealer.co.uk/Tricker_s/Useful_Information/

    I can share my limited experiences. In their 4497 last I wear a size 8 UK and the 4444 last I take a 7 1/2 (normal width, fitting 5, on both). For comparison, I wear a size 8D in the Barrie and a 8.5D in most other shoes.

    Their calf is fantastic, but I don't have any experience with their suede. I know there are people who can give better advice in this thread, but hopefully that helps a bit.

    Edit: I forgot to mention, Richard at The Shoe Healer is amazing, and he will go out of his way to help with any questions.

    Guy's I have to ask, I know this is a Trickers thread, but have you had any experience with Sanders? I was about to buy a pair of Trickers long wings,but decided to get these:

    Sorry about the big picture. Anyway they are superb, very well built and come with the Ridgeway sole, which fits nicely between a dainite sole and the commando soul.

    Just wanted to know your thoughts.

    Thanks, Marc.

    Sanders (& Sanders) are a mid-range maker, notable for their formal military footwear (George boots, and the like). Not sure if they're wholly made in the UK these days or just assembled here, in the style of Loake etc. They seem to be aiming for a more urban market with some of their more recent offerings like the shoes you posted.

    Bit like Tricker's, really...

    The Ridgeway sole is a Dainite sole, too, and my favourite sole option.

    Yeah I love the Ridgeway. Just perfect for a country brogue, just a little more than a Dainite (stud) but not as heavy as a commando. For your Information I spoke to Pediwear and they tell me it is 100% made in England, nothing is made abroad. I just struggled to justify double the money for a pair of Trickers. But I'm not ruling out a pair in the future.

    Marc.

    And my latest addition - Trickers Cheyenne Black Grain leather, commando sole, custom Logger boots...

    They look a little weary - should update with some pics now they have bathed in Saphir renovateur, black cream, and dubbin. Proper workhorse boots.

    Another pair that have benefited from a full Saphir makeover (these are before pics)

    They are custom shoes on the 88 last, made as boots.

    Trying to post here, but as a new user my posts are being held back - how long does it take? A few with pics from last night are still not showing, yet this one has?

    EDIT ...

    They have appeared! more to follow!

    Nothing to be ashamed of, sanders & sanders is a decent maker. I would say the style you bought is a little different from their normal outings but whatever. 99% of people won't be able to tell the difference anyways.

    Thanks for your reply,

    The way I look at it they are extremely well made shoes, look great and are very comfortable. £220 or £250 with Mark McNairy stamped inside. But I had a discount code and paid £167 delivered. I just couldn't resist.

    Marc.

    My family tree...

    Top middle (clockwise)

    Trickers Allan in a honey colour grain leather (red dainite)
    Trickers Stow in Champagne waxed suede (double leather)
    Mark McNairy for Tres Bien - waxy derby boot (commando)
    Trickers 88 last black shoe boots (leather)
    Trickers Keswick
    Trickers Stow Chestnut (antique marron, commando)
    Trickers Ilkely
    Trickers Burford (espresso, leather)

    The Stow Chestnuts are for sale as 7.5 and too small. When I bought them I wrongly thought they matched my 7.5 Keswick on the 4444 last. I take 8 in the 4497 last and so these are tight.
    Amazing boots, custom colour that you can't buy, fell in love with them and really don't want to see them go. Only just past the breaking in stage. See my icon, pm if interested.
