Yes, 13187 last is unusual. Is that the last used for the Roy boot MTO several years ago? I’m sure there are some on here who will remember that.

The Roy gmto was made on the 4537 which is a somewhat chiseled last. The 13187 is a bit blobby country last used on the Boorman. Fit sort of like a 4497.

Look excellent mate. Not heard of that last before.
I originally read somewhere that the Sheene was on a 4497 but I had my doubts as they're roomier than my Paul Smith Stow on the 4444 also it was not stated on their site, my boots nor the box.....recently saw that the Motorcycle boot (an almost idendtical boot) on their outlet was on a 13187, so contacted Tricker's yesterday to confirm.

The man should know. :)

Tricker's "Boorman" from Herring Shoes. On the mysterious 13187 last. I ordered same size as 4497 and it feels similar.
Bellows tongue. A major PITA to take these on and off. Not a good choice for airport security.
Kudos to Herring for using Royal Mail upon request. They had to send each shoe separately though. This must not be uncommon as they included a pre-printed note explaining this.

Sorry if I missed this when searching, but what are your experiences maintaining Olivvia, and in particular Olivvia deer skin leather? What products/routines do you use? Thanks!

Thanks Zippy I had a sneaky feeling you might just know the answer to that one.

May I ask the members their opinion about the Bourtons of the following link ? Also could anyone give me informations about the muflone leather and if this model is the lightweight version ? If not I am not interested. Thanks.

I like them. They appear to be the heavy manly sole version. Maybe wait a few days in case they have a Halloween sale.

Good question..."essence from olive leaves is used for tanning" and not too sure if using other products have a detrimental effect, especially with the very soft supple Deer skin leather.
Now having said that... I have treated my Deer skin Olivvia Sheenes with black shoe cream and yesterday due to the inclement weather decided to apply Mink oil.... long-term effect?....obviously we will have to wait and see.... but the boots look no worse for wear after a few hours walking in the rain. :)

...just to add, from the Tricker's site.

How to care for your Olivvia footwear:
  • Remove dirt or marks then polish with a clean cloth.
  • Once a fortnight use shoe cream to nourish the leather.
  • Once a fortnight use polish for weatherproofing. Use black for black leather and neutral for all other colours.
  • Keep your footwear in their shoe bags provided to prevent damage.
  • Use shoe trees to help maintain shape.

I’m using renovateur and saphir’s neatsfoot cream and a regular brush. But I really don’t know if that’s a good idea.

Two things I’m wondering about is stretching the leather after moisturizing and dealing with burnished spots. The first picture shows how the moisturized leather looks when I put the trees in. Somehow strained and unhealthy, or not? The second picture shows burnished spots under the laces. I actually really like the look and feel of the leather when burnished, but I’m wondering if I should reset/treat the spots, somewhat like shell rolls.

Shoe cream and polish every two weeks seem like an insane amount of product.
