    Thank you all for sharing sizing information. I'm currently considering ordering a pair of Eatons from the Shoe Healer, so this is timely. I missed out on the order they did for February, so at this point I will have to do a special order. My understanding is that the Eatons are usually built on the 4444 last. Davichan's report is therefore very informative. I currently own a pair of Bourtons, which I believe are also on this last. These fit me reasonably well, but I have wondered if a slightly sleeker last might be preferable. The 4444 is just a little too roomy over the laces. The 4497 seems as if it might be the way to go. But now I wonder about this "non-Stow" from STP. These look good to me, and seem to have a slightly sleeker design. Does anyone know which last they are built on? Could you compare the fit to other Trickers? These boots at STP aren't available in my size, but perhaps these are another option to consider. Thanks.

    Sorry, I just saw that this has been discussed in a separate thread ("Trickers at Sierra Trading Post")

    According to Zippyh, the non-Stows are 2298, whereas the Stows are 4497. He has a picture to show that they are somewhat narrower.

    STP restocks the Trickers boots often, so if you think the 2298 last might be the best fit for you, you might consider waiting if you can.

    On my foot, the 2298 in a Richard longwing shoe in 10UK fit similar/slightly longer than a 4497 in 9.5UK.

    I got the Not Stows in 9.5UK and was on the brink of sending them back.
    But I put some shoe trees in overnight with a wedge to keep them open a bit and that stretched them enough to work for me with thin socks.

    "Sleek" is not a word I would use to describe either the 4497 or 4444. :)

    Replaced my standard laces with black rawhide ones:

    Are those oiled leather? Laces look good.

    sinnedk I have no idea on what you base the idea that they're half a size too small for me (intruiged, though!), but they're actually maybe 1/4 to 1/2 size too big... I wear heavy duty gel filled insoles with them, though, to make 'm fit snug.

    Bryan_Funfetti: don't think they're oiled. As far as I know they're just your standard rawhide laces... I do physical labour in them so I'd like to think the thick(er) laces make them look more rugged :tounge:

    Oh, no I'm sorry I meant is the leather the boots are made out of the waxy leather? I've been looking to pick up some waxy burgundy brogues and I'm curious as to how that type of leather holds up.

    Oh I'm sorry: yes they are indeed of the waxy variant!.. But as to how they hold up: mine are only a week old, so no first hand experience...

    Thank you for the kind words, sinnedk. I love them as well. :embar:

    Stuff to think about. It sounds as if I might be better off sticking with the 4497 or 4444. Perhaps I'll put the matter to Richard.

    No, these lasts are not exactly sleek. I think that is just the Trickers way.

    Wentworths from Pediwear.
    (BTW, don't assume Pedi will ship via Royal Mail/Parcel Force and be sure to request that they do.
    Sometimes they use UPS. That was a $58.88 lesson I learned.)
