Are GMTO's still a thing with Tricker's? I'd love to get an ethan monkey boot on commando or ridgeway if anyone else is keen?
Ethan monkey boots is on my wish list but never found the make up I could be interested in. So could been interested but probably not on commando. Would like something a bit more dressier... BTW Ridgeway may do the job!

Replying to both...

I am eagerly (please read annoying and impatiently..) awaiting a monkey boot single mto I placed a while back.

I’m happy to organise a group version but it’d probably be March next year for delivery due to Covid restrictions plus the factory closes at Christmas. I was going to propose something when these landed as I’ve changed the formula a wee bit!

I have a monkey I had converted to ridgeway, I’ll fish a shot of that out for you both too...

Thanks a lot! I had to say I wanted nice monkey boots for a couple,of years, so waiting some months is not’a problem for me. Shoe Healer told me,that your green forest cxl boots should be there in March as well, not a problem for me. I may buy Viberg soon as I need boots! For my experience, my top 3 boots makers are Trickers, Viberg and Red Wing (not’the same Spirit but ratio quality/price on Red Wing is just’outstanding IMHO). Whatever, I need more Trickers to replace the Alden I just sold (Alden is not’for,my feet... and probably for my taste as it was a couple of years ago).

Quite curious about’the Monkey on Ridgeway!

About the Monkey, would be interested in brown (probably dark brown monkey). Would like something quite classical and not funky colours...

Right chaps...

I was thinking

Polo (dark brown) kudu
9 hole Ethan
4497s last (can be made on that)
Cream Barbour welt
Natural mid sole
Ridgeway sole
Brass eyelets
Brown laces

The only stickler to this is that I think Polo May be a discontinued colour so I asked to see if any was in stock to meet to obligatory 12 pairs.

will find out tomorrow re that.

Another option is the same boot in Sign (burgundy) or Caramel (caramel) kudu!
Plenty of stock of those two colours.
Price will be UK list (buyers outside certain borders get uk vat off) with free Trickers branded shoe trees and free delivery.

personally I think a brown kudu would look classy as the boot itself is the feature and the last takes out the nonsense that 5402 provides us which is will it bloody fit me!!

equally we could do it on 2298 if people wanted a slightly slimmer profile.

lining I’m not fussed on. We can go red, green, purple...only thing I think it looks better when pull loops match the lining.

I’m happy with Caramel as the primary colour, have a feeling Polo may be hard to source.

Sounds amaze good Sir! I'd be down for either Polo or Caramel, not too keen on more burgundy at the moment.

I think it would look best in Polo so hopefully they still have that in stock :)
