    Same here. I'm thinking of sizing up .5 on my next Tricker's purchase, a pair of boots to accommodate thicker socks. The shoes are OK with thin socks.

    The right shoe is still bothering me. I'm trying to wear them more often to 'break' them in. The right waist area is rubbing against my ankle and causes a small cut/blister. The left side is OK though.

    I think that should be the right size for you. I am a US10.5 in Indy and a UK10.5 in Tricker's 2298 and 4537, which are supposed to be about a half size smaller than 4444/4497. I'd say the Indys fit about perfect, while the Tricker's might be a tad on the large size; but sizing down was definitely too small. And I prefer some toe wiggle room myself.

    Does Tricker's produce any brogue boots with 2004 last?

    Just received my coffee not Stows from STP. The 8.5 UK fits me perfectly.

    I get mine tomorrow. I purchased a 9.5 (it said US 10D on the site). I hope they fit since I wear a 9.5 the Trubalance/Barrie lasts and normally a slightly wide 10D in everything else.

    My Trickers 8.5 fit almost identically to Barrie 9...

    They look deceptively narrow, but actually accommodate my slightly wide feet

    My coffee not Stows are my first pair of nice shoes, any special instructions on care? First step is buy a pair of shoe trees, but I am not sure where to go from there. Any particular polish I should be using, etc.?

    I treat most of my calfskin with Saphir conditioner. There are others but it is a smart start for your first pair of quality footwear. Here is a link http://store.asuitablewardrobe.net/saphirrenovateurcleanerconditioner.aspx

    well,
    i know it is weird to re-quote oneself,
    but for the purpose of sharing good information, i think it could be beneficial to help others.

    so because of all my problems with my burfords, (explained in my quoted email above)
    i had richard from the shoehealer, make me a custom mto trickers eaton.
    by the way, if anyone doesn't already know from doing business with him,
    i would not purchase a tricker boot elsewhere besides dealing with him.
    he is super top when it comes to fitting advice, and a pure pleasure to deal with email communication.

    so i had my eatons sized the same uk 7 fitting .5 fit
    but the main difference from my troublesome burfords,
    these eatons are built on the 4444 last.


    comparing the 4444 last, i can describe the eatons like this:
    -the toe-box appears to look slightly narrower from the outside shape, but inside has more room for my toes to very comfortably move about from up and down.
    -the waist of the last hugs in my arch with more support.
    -the instep and tongue gently wraps around and gives me the "bandaged" support i desire from a well laced boot.
    -the length of the fit in the toe-box is also a few millimeters longer, and is also feels so much more comfortable. this little bit really makes a world of difference in comfort for my taste in fit. the 4479 feels more close to the end of the toe-box.
    people that complain of 4497 trickers fitting too tight in the toe-box, should definitely consider the 4444 last then.

    overall this 4444 eaton feels like it has more fitted shape to it, and allowing more room in the vamp height and toe-box length,
    i personally like this fit more-so then the 4497 buford.
    and would most likely continue on with fitting for this last for future trickers purchases.

    hope it helps.
    thank you all :slayer:

    Well, my 9.5 not stows fit similar to Trubalance 9.5 but are more adjustable than my Alden shoes since they are a boot. They were a good choice.
