They’re very fine leather and not sure it’d be the warmest winter boot.
Can’t speak to the longevity yet although I did have concerns when I first bought them as are super fine.
What do you think of them overall though? In terms of colour and the character of the leather over a period of use?

They’re a nice boot to wear, as they’re black patina isn’t an issue so they will generally look like this indefinitely. I rarely wear as black doesn’t really fit into what I’d generally choose and I’ve a gazillion other pairs vying for attention!

I’d not throw them under the bus but I’d not put them forwards over kudu etc.

Not bad, not bad. Someone offered me a new pair for GBP 300 so thinking it over. If anyone on here is interested I can share the EBay link to the seller. These look nice, but I do have a pair of Docs that are fit for purpose. Nice little mini collection I see behind this one though. ;-)

And his and hers — wife was happy her new Annes, her first Tricker’s, kept her feet dry in a long day with lots of time in the wet.

That's awesome! I've been trying to convince my girlfriend that we should buy matching Trciker's Stow but she's not that into footwear so I have to purchase both but then I have to decide... matching boots or two pairs for me? :lol:

Meermin has great prices for girl's shoes. Maybe you can find the way for 2 pairs for you and 1 for your GF.

Buying shoes is healthy, well ... sometimes.

Hello Everyone,

I've just bought my first pair of trickers - Woodstock in Marron antique. Loving the shoes in quite a bizarre way, and feel good about buying something that will last a long time from a company with a long heritage. Anyway, enough gushing.

I have two questions...

1) My right foot is slightly smaller than my left. Left foot fits fine. Right foot has a little heel slippage. If I try an insole in the right shoe, too tight around the toes, too snug. Will the heel slippage go away as they are broken in or better to try something like a "tongue pad" to just shrink the volume a bit?

2) I'm not going to wear the shoes every other day....they're going to be for when socialising (when that is possible!), weekends etc in autumn/winter/early spring. They came with shoe trees, so sorted there. In terms of care....given their likely frequency of use a condition every few months and a wax one or twice a year? Bick4 or saphir lotion as a conditioner? What Sahpir coloured products best match Marron antique? Light brown?

Many thanks

Graham

Welcome Graham.
1. There’s a good chance the heel slippage will get better as they’re worn in.
2. I wouldn’t think you need to condition more than a couple times per year. Waxing maybe once per year. Just give them a quick brush to remove any dirt after wearing. Maybe a quick brush before wearing to remove any dust.
That is unless you enjoy shoe maintenance then condition/polish more frequently. Just be careful to not overdo it with polish.

I would go along with all of that. My experience has been that the heel slippage does improve over time and Tricker's get a lot more comfortable. I particularly like Zippyh's suggestions about keeping shoe care simple, too. They are as tough as old boots...

Hello..

I wanted some help. I am planning to do a review on my Trickers Stow Boot in Acorn. i would be grateful if someone can fill me on with the following informations

1. Does anyone know which tannery does the leather come from ?
2. Looking for really old Stow boot pics. Boots worn properly for years and had multiple resoles. I want to speak about the longitivtiy while providing examples.
3. What kind of leather lining do they use? Veg or chrome tanned ?
4. The welt is a Storm welt ?
