Welcome to SF.
7.5UK sounds about right.
Serious deal on burgundy vibram sole trickers here, for 11/12: http://www.styleforum.net/t/283010/...brogue-the-bureau-exclusive/0_40#post_5113364
I'd snatch those up if they were my size, hot damn
This Boot is the usual Stow 'pattern' but is made on the more regular fitting W2298 Last.
The W2298 Last was used for the long discontinued (3 years ago) Tricker's 'Corniche' collection. These models were 'Country Style', but regular fitting and Lighter weight. Most of them had Storm Welts, but Single Leather Soles. There were a couple of Commando Soled models that had a Leather Mid-Sole fitted.
You would also note that the boot is fiitted with a Flat Welt but the Sole Edge is kept to a fairly Wide Trim.
I personally wouldn't consider the bot to be 'sleek', but it definitely has a little more 'shape' in the Toe than the regular 4497s Last of the Stock Stow.
I like it ;-)
Trickers @ Pitti Uomo
Just need to wait a bit for some of those Pitti MTOs to show up on the bay!
Richard, thank you for the expertise!
What would you guess is the leather on the Tricker's Pebbled Burford?
It is tough and dry, and looks like it might be a pull-up leather, as it lightens quickly at stress points. It feels to me (and looks) like the leather on an American football.
If anyone even buys a pair, not a fan of the leather patches or the buckle
Thank you zippyh. I'll get the 7.5UK.
Thank you zippyh.
I'll get the 7.5UK.
Tricker's makes tennis shoes?
Thank you Sir, and no problem at all.
The Leather in the link is almost certainly Espresso Burnished Scotch Grain Calf. On that particular Boot, the Grain is quite heavy. Usually, in 'High Tension' areas such as the Toe Cap and Heel Counter when a shoe is 'Lasted', the Grain can be pulled out a little but that model is quite good.
Not exactly Tennis Shoes. Tricker's are relaunching the 'Corniche Collection'.
These will be (amongst others) Trainer Type Shoes and Boots, Deck Shoes and a small hand full of other styles.
They will though be made in Portugal.
Official delivery schedule is Late January/Early February to our store.
We already have several models on order.
If Tricker's no longer makes the boots for Brunello Cucinelli, anyone know who is making their boots? These Cucinelli's look really nice and, though made in Italy, remind me of Tricker's.
Pics stolen from an eBay listing (not my listing or anyone I know...can perhaps prove it by declaring I would never lay out a plus $500 starting bid for these, which is what seller is asking.)
Thanks for the information.
Anyone here know I can get a pair of this in anywhere?
I remember handling those boots at a Cucinelli store last year. They seemed nice, but not $1k+ nice.

Speaking of Cucinelli Tricker's clones...
