    Yep, thinking about it the ones I have seen have been in non brown or black colours. And I also thought they were poorer quality than the Dainite.

    Commando soles are definitely made by Itshide and these are the ones used by Trickers. However, the studded rubber soles which are generally referred to as Dainite soles and which are made by the Harboro Rubber Co are also made by Itside. Weirdly, the Istside versions of these soles are branded...

    I may be completely imagining this but didn’t Tricker’s give that colour some ridiculous name like Marmalade? Either way they look pretty cool.

    Offical TRICKERS shoes and boots thread

    It’s strange how opinions/ tastes differ because personally I really like the contrast between the dark Cafe and the natural welt. As you probably know the welt will definitely darken the more you wear them. Personally I can’t see the point in incurring the cost of a re-welt but there is...

    Looking good! I used to have a pair in lollipop red, kind of regret moving them on now.

    I certainly don’t think it’s a bad thing, more likely a good thing. The only issue might be with darker colours such as Espresso or Cafe as these have a tendency to lighten in colour over time. The Trickers factory actually suggested to me that black polish should be used to maintain those dark...

    Those look like the style of boot that Trickers now call Lawrence.

    I tried to resist but finally caved in and ordered a pair of the waxy commander Stows from AFPOS. I have owned several pairs of Stows but these are right up there with my favourites. Absolutely love them.

    Sorry if this advice is contradictory but if you wear 9.5 on the w2298 last and if it is snug I would not size down to 9 for the 4497. I wear the same size for both the 2298 and the 4497. The 2298 is snug around the toes but I find the 4497 has more room in that area. But as ever in this...

    Ah yes, I remember that - always regretted not getting a pair of those at the time.

    Really like the Jimmy boot and they look particularly good in zug. Were they a one off MTO?

    Sounds like you’ve been using the Grasmeres exactly as they were intended to be used! I can also understand why they would be worth more to you in their current condition than a new pair. If you do intend to get them rewelted I’d recommend contacting the Shoe Healer based in Doncaster UK for an...

    Great to see pics of boots that have had some serious wear. Those Grasmeres in particular look really good. I understand what you are saying about getting them re-welted with a natural welt, but that will be a fairly expensive exercise and I think it will be hard to improve on how they look at...

    The ones from The Bureau?

    That’s interesting. If it’s coated then it’s not something that’s noticeable. I wouldn’t let that put you off that type of leather. The main difference that I noticed is that it is a bit thicker than calf skin.

    I own a couple of pairs in MC and if it’s coated it’s not obvious as it has a fairly matt finish. I’m really not into coated finishes like bookbinder.

    They probably are beechnut or marron but over the years Tricker’s have produced a surprising number of shades of brown. One which springs to mind is a shade called ‘moccasin’. See post #17,920 which provides an example of this colour.

    Yes, I agree with this. Not convinced it’s C shade.

    Save your money and put it towards a different pair that you want / need.
