    Isn't that estimated retail way high?

    Yes, if you're talking UK prices, but Tricker's aren't seen too often in the U.S. Amazon.com is selling two styles of "Tricker's for Ted Baker" for $800.

    I wonder what collection the STP Tricker's are from. Pediwear offers the "Country" collection for about $375 U.S., while the "Corniche" line is a good bit less expensive.

    Fairly certain the STP version is the same as this:

    Pattern, medallion, eyelets and sole details all appear to match.

    Thanks for that info NoVaguy. I was about to buy them from STP but the sole killed it for me.

    I looked at that, but the soles are different, aren't they? I couldn't find any that I thought were a perfect match.

    I think the soles are the same - STP says they're "Commando tread outsole by Dainite of England", and pediwear says "Commando Soles". The leather might be a different grade, though.

    I love the shoes, but those soles look to be designed with mucking out stalls in the English countryside in mind.

    Now that I look again, I think you might be right. I was thinking Tricker's had two types of Commando soles, but maybe not.

    Here's an update on the Tricker's. In fact, they are from the Corniche collection, which means that the price STP has identified as the retail price is far, far off. At 150 pounds (127 without VAT), these can be had for 250 US shipped from pediware, nothing like the $640 they have listed as the retail price, or even the $380 they have listed as the current "discounted" price. I will unfortunately be returning these in the morning.

    well, keep in mind that pediwear is discounted from the high street price, which is probably another 20 or 30 pounds over that.

    and you're also supposed to pay the duty on the pediwear shoes, and may get assessed that as well if you order through pediwear.

    I already returned mine to STP yesterday. Not worth the price IMO.

    Regards.

    shoesinternational.co.uk has the same price listed. In any case, there's no way that the retail price they have listed is correct, or that the current discounted price ($380) is actually a discount at all.

    To their credit, when I spoke to them about this, they were very concerned (I've alwasy found that STP has very good customer service)--we'll see if there's any action in the future.

    shoesinternational.co.uk is pediwear.co.uk, and should have the same prices.

    commndo soles and dainite are very different IMHO . The lugs are huge on commandos and the dainite is more flush to the ground.

    What is the model number printed? Does it say corniche collection on the box?

    From the pic they look like full grain burnished leather with dainite sole, not the waxy leather in the corniche collection. The former would put them in the 180GBP level which is well worth it.

    PS the only place I know of which continuously carries Tricker's in the US is Nom De Guerre and they charge $550 ish.

    The STP trickers are Dainite with the more flush soles that are NOT commando soles as alluded to on the STP description.

    If so, then the shoes may be a different model than the pediwear version and may retail for closer to 200 gbp.....

    The style number marked on the box is: 1652/68 Durham.

    The only Durham model I've seen is from the Corniche collection.

    Even if these were 180GBP, that translates into roughly $350. STP's price, which they list as being 40% off retail, is $380 (the 50% shoe sale is over, the 30% coupon no longer working).
