    There's nothing wrong with the boots, as Richard just confirmed. I'll get it fixed myself, no need to abuse BB's or Tricker's generosity... :embar:

    It's also worth mentioning that a little care and attention--along with having a rotation--pays great dividends in terms of both looks and longevity.

    i disagree, they provided you a product thats faulty, have them fix it,

    you paid them money for a good product, why should you pay to fix a faulty product?

    May I offer a suggestion if this will be a 'DIY' fix?
    Open the gap as wide as possible and use something like a Suede Brush to clean both sides of the surface. Use an 'Emery Board' (sand paper) to clean and scour both surfaces. Blow out any loose particles and Brush again. Apply the Latex Contact Adhesive to both sides evenly with a brush, being careful Not to apply too much (important). You must keep the gap open until the Adhesive is dry to the touch. Once dry to the touch, warm up the area with a Hair Dryer and press together tightly. Grip should be instant and sound. Apair of 'Pliers' can be used carefuly to 'pinch' the area together.

    If this re-occurs I will ask them to fix it. But as it truly seems to be a small flaw, I wil have my shoecobbler have a go at it. I trust her.

    If I may Sir.
    I am certain that the colour of the 'Paul Smith' Collaboration is the regular 'Marron Antique Calf'. The Stow, Bourton and Woodstock are stock Tricker's models in this colour.
    What differentiates your Paul Smith model from a regular Stow, is the 'figure of eight' Brogue Detailing on the Wing Cap and Heel Counter.

    We call that the Not-Stow. It is not as large as the Stow. I don't think "sleek" is a good word for it; it is much like a Barrie-lasted Alden boot in terms of shape.

    There are many pictures and much discussion of the boot in the Trickers for Sierra Trading Post thread ...

    I keep a bottle of Bish's Original Tear Mender in my shoe kit. It is good to have on hand, and I think it's the kind of product Richard is recommending for repairing the sole separation.

    My guess is yes. It looks like STP has a deal with Tricker's. Years ago they offered Tricker's every now and then. But now they get full runs of various styles on an annual basis.

    Don't worry, they will. They have been restocking all the styles on a regular basis. And also wait for a good coupon deal - they often go to 35% off, and sometimes 40%.

    Hi guys, this is my first post, so be nice to me! Thank you.
    While I was reading this thread, I came across the MTO Tricker's Coffee Eaton and I knew immediately that I wanted a pair - not boots but shoes!
    Now the good news, I contacted Richard of Shoe Healer and after half a dozen emails Richard had just advised me that he had managed to place a bulk order (12) of a shoe version of coffee Eaton.
    Similar specification to the Eaton boots, 4444 last fitting 5, brass eyelets and dainite sole.
    I am truly excited [​IMG]but what's the right sizing? I wear 8.5E to 9D in Allen Edmonds, 7.5H in RM Williams.
    Would 7.5 be the right size for me?

    I got the same boots as hc4thehc... I'm not quiet sure which last it is. I got the same size as my c&j shoes. It is abot half a size bigger, I can wear them with sole insert and thick socks, but it is a tight squeeze, especially in instep. Without the insert and thick sock they are perfect.
