    The label on my pair of Burfords is stitched in. I've been wearing them a lot in very wet weather and like the other pair, the label has bled significantly, leaving a red spot on the socks. The Dainite sole is surprisingly good on ice even with the nubs quite flattened.

    Those scotch grain Burfords are the only pair of Tricker's I have with a glued label.
    It also seems that only about half of my pairs even have that label.

    In case anyone's curious - the "Beechnut Burnished" color seems almost identical to AE's Walnut (especially Burnished Walnut.) I took a pair of not-Stows out of the box and found they pretty much matched the factory-second AE Daltons I picked up during the last sale - the Trickers are maybe just a tiny bit darker. Going to be hard to justify keeping both - maybe I can darken the Trickers a bit more.

    Very interesting, TPU, that your STP Burfords have a stitched-in label and others have a glued-in label.

    The leather responds very well to Renovateur, fwiw.

    There is no one sole that is best for ice -- except maybe one with metal spikes -- but I also find Dainite to be equally good/bad as leather or commando. The big advantage of Dainite is how easily it wipes clean on a doormat. This is the whole point of the bottom being designed the way it is.

    What's the deal with these "Aldo-style" boots I can't find information about that style anywhere else.

    Made for STP?

    Check here often:STP@retailmenot. Make sure to scroll all the way down as sometimes the better, newer ones can get mixed in with the older ones.

    For codes, sign up for the Dealflyer. It appears you get better offers after you've been a customer for a while, but who knows if that is true.

    There are sometimes codes on the back of the mailings they send.

    Codes are mostly one-time use these days.

    I don't work for STP but can only guess that if they ever restock, it would be next November or so, as they this was the second year they rolled out the boots just in time for winter.

    Is this normal for Trickers? Got a pair of seconds and there seems to be glue left?

    Also these are marked 10.5 correct? STP said I was getting size 10. It's a bit long but not too bad and width is spot on

    Those are a size 10, 5 width fitting. Tricker's marks half size with ½, i.e. 10½. Oh, and afaik, STP Tricker's are not seconds.

    I can be quite fussy, but that bit of excess glue where they attached the ½ sockliner wouldn't bother me at all.

    Just got a pair in 10 plain toe and the shoes are completely destroyed. Box is fully apart, creasing all over, scratches on shoe and light shoe wear on soles. Unbelievable that they would sell these as new

    Unfortunately, this is not unusual for STP. I've had a few shoes arrive like this, apparently having been purchased and returned several times. Once the shoes were in as bad shape as your sound, and I called them up and insisted that they provide free shipping back and refund the original shipping charges, which they did. They should remove shoes from "new" inventory at a certain point.

    Thanks for the info, they offered free shipping back, may just return instead of exchange like I wanted...

    I'm between an 11 and 11 1/2 in most dress shoes and I went with the 10 (uk) in the Williams chukka. Fits great length wise, width is right on the cusp of being too narrow. I rarely have to buy wide shoes, though it happens occasionally. I wear mostly Bally or Varvatos for dress shoes/boots and the width is normally spot on. These work, but it's narrow enough you should be aware of it.
