I’ve three c and j in it. They do it amazingly mate. Have a chelsea too. Lovely boots.
Yes most definitely. Even the one wear for around 200 metres of walking in this Chelsea boot and the leather is already developing folds and patina which is quite something to see. Lovely stuff.

So with that said, I have another pair of Norwegian boots but in a Carlo Badalassi veg tan leather. Is that something that Trickers will work with? The leathers, I mean. Again, watching that aging process is quite beautiful.

Don’t see any reason why not. Appears to be a pull up leather?
Can't recall any heavy pull up qualities but the aging is something to behold. Also it polishes superbly with just a few brush strokes. Beautiful leathers.

Attached are the pair new ( maybe post a quick walk in them ), after their first polish two weeks later, and then three months later when i was packing them away for summer.

Another bit of madness. I am thinking about putting a spot of Saphir Hermes Red on the toecaps of my Kudu Sign shoes. Has anyone else done anything like this and was it wise? Yours with trepidation, Munky.

I’ve not added anything to my kudu. They are burnished from the factory and each pair different due to that.
Yes, you are right, thank you. One of their plus points is the burnished finish and the difference in shades of the leather. Thanks again.

Right...

Another GMTO...

Album..

I ordered a few pairs several months ago as single made to order boots, the shop I ordered through I get on really well with the owners so if they like the order I said they can order a bulk in! They liked these...a lot!

I don’t work with Shoe Healer and pay for my boots the same as anyone else would. The way the world is now and with business on high streets getting harder and harder I think why not help others if we can?

These boots turned out fantastically. We can order a bulk order at standard UK prices, countries that are exempt from UK duty which is 20 per cent get that discounted on top, £445 (minus vat if appropriate). This includes free delivery and brass toe plates (if required. An option which I’ve negotiated for free) and Trickers branded shoe trees!

Spec..

Caramel Kudu Eaton (minus toe medallion).

4497s Last (standard Trickers boot last).

Brass Eyelets.

Green lining and pull loops.

Dark brown welt with white stitching, antique mid sole (like the pictures). This can be lighter or darker as Shoe Healer are cobblers.

Brown laces.

Light brown binding.

Double leather sole (brass recessed toe plates no cost option)

Will essentially be a carbon copy of the boot pictured here.

Expression of interest to..

[email protected]

We don’t really have a minimum or maximum order and the projected build is March 2021 if not before.

4497s is true to UK sizing, any queries, maybe I can help or email the guys and they’ll sort!

Love it! I'm in. My birthday is in 2021. July. :p

I didn't get the part about the antique sole though. You mean leather? That is the only bit I am unsure about since it won't work with the wet and cold conditions we get here. Dainite or Commando possible? Although I fear that may ruin the look altogether.....

I’ll message you mate but essentially it’s the colour of the stain. Looks antiqued ie old! 😂
