    I just ordered a pair of suede Trickers with rubber soles from B&S. I love suede bucks and thought this would be an interesting alternative to wear with denim and sport coats. I will post some pics when they arrive. I sure hope they fit, I hear Trickers vary a lot depending upon the last.

    Hey, I'm trying to figure out some sizing stuff. I'm almost certainly going to get the Malton with a Commando sole, which only comes in the wider 6 fitting. Anyone have any insight on this? Is it significantly wider? I'm already going to be sizing down 1/2 size since I've heard the country collection requires it.
    I haven't tried the 6 fitting (and have no reason to), but the 5 fitting country last is already wider than 5 fitting city lasts at the same size. Sizing down 1/2 size did not work for me. The boot is wide enough -- maybe a touch too wide, even -- but too short. Unfortunately for my budget, 4 fitting boots are only available by special order.

    I am a tricker's fan now ... I just recieved these from B&S and they are really nice. They seem to be pretty well made, though some might consider the thick sole clunky.

    For $125, they are worth every penny.

    I've been buying Tricker's shoes for quite a while... I've always been very happy with them...

    Seems they don't make a narrow width shoe, is that correct?

    Thank you! Indeed, I asked to "Shoe healer" for this MTO. I paid 295 GBP...

    ^ Thanks for the suggestion. I could try Pediwear or even Shoe Healer but one reason I am hesitant to do that is that I am unsure of my size in Trickers. I could send back a pair of regular shoes if they didnt fit me but would be stuck with a MTO. The other factor is cost. The MTO range at Shoe healer starts at 295 GBP exc VAT. I could get this Church's for 308 euros less 20% VAT. [​IMG] Guess I would have to wait till one pops up on Trickers ebay shop

    Requested a quote on some custom trickers today similar to the Junya X trickers of 2009 with a different sole and suede and they want roughly 600 shipped to the US.

    My father being in his 70's says they are worth every penny but I am having a tough time deciding if my pockey book can justify the cost.

    Well. I just feel like I have to chip in at this point - my tan belgraves are pretty cool! Got them mid-way last year. The blue box is awesome btw, beats CJ's dreary green packaging. I just wish Trickers had some really dark brown colors, something like the CJ ones. Has anyone here made a custom order of an existing model, with modifications to color only?

    Espresso isn't dark enough for you? It's almost black!

    Mine appear lighter than usual here (lots of natural light).

    Thanks, I do like them a lot; I've probably worn them once or twice every week since I got them. Re Tricker's Espresso: I briefly had a pair of their Regent calfskin captoes in that colour with natural sole edge finishing, MTO for a German retailer (returned them because of needle drag marks). That pair could pass for black depending on the lighting.
