    It's a very appropriate detail. They're country boots. They look like it. Wingtips without the crinkle cut are weird.


    I was thinking about ordering mine as austerity brogues, so glad that i didn't in the end. You can't try and turn stows into minimalist boots; buy something else if that's what you want.

    Huh, I had no idea. I only have one pair of brogue boots - some MII jobbies I picked up years ago off Zappos, no clue about the brand - and all of the edges are smooth.

    Anyway, kinda waffling on keeping v. returning.

    Yeah, I think one would be hard pressed to find some that weren't.
    BTW, it's called "pinking".

    Yeah, that. I guess I hadn't looked closely enough at pictures to realize that it was the norm. Just kinda jumped out at me when I put them on and looked down at my feet.

    I guess that confirms that I'm a total weirdo for not liking that detail.

    I had a pair of Trickers without the Pinking,
    you can have Richard the shoe healer make them up custom for you if you like.

    not a fan of the "not-stow." The Buford is a better looking boot, imo. The proportions on the "not-stow" look off

    Looking for some shoe/boot trees for my Burfords, any brands that fit the last well come to mind? Or will generics work?

    Most are made by the same company. Any shoe tree will fit the bill as long as its cedar and fits your boot properly

    Do you not like the shape or the detail? The shape looks very similar. Is the Burford also on the 2298 last?

    Edit: I've just seen that the Burford is on the 4497. Sorry.

    i have burfords and stows but they look silly (on me) with slim denim, which you seem to wear a lot.
    i don't own the the not stows, but being a bit less clunky, they're probably more versatile that way.

    Not particularly interested in them, just wanted to find the last number for sizing reference. I found a pair of navy leather chukkas with vibram soles on ebay, which are apparently on the 7509 last, I assume these are the same...

    Anybody have experience with that last?

    The Bourton Model by Tricker's is made on the generous fitting 4444 Last.
    This is Half a Size Oversized if compared with a regular fitting Dress Shoe. Example, a Dress Shoe UK 9, a 4444 Lasted Tricker's UK 8 1/2.
