    Anyone know where to get replacement laces or something really close to original laces for some Trickers maltons in c-shade. I read earlier in the post to contact richard but I am looking for something that wont have to cost so much to ship and I can order through a US site or store.

    It would cost a couple or three quid to post them from the UK, no?

    I think you focused on the wrong part of his sentence. Richard is thinking about specifically requesting that the medallion be placed further back, while continuing to use the Number 12.

    I forgot how much it cost to post from UK but was hoping for some US alternative.

    I have actually had a discussion with the factory on the Toe Die being part lost behind the Welt. I did think for a while that they may be using the same size Pattern for at least two to three Half sizes, but I was assured definitely not. Maybe we should start a Vote. 12 Toe Die or 'G' Toe Die ?? :)

    I prefer the current placement of the medallion. Moving further back makes the shoes look too "busy".
    However, I do like to see the tip of the wing be a bit longer like the Church's Grafton on the Shoe Healer's Website:

    Keep using the 12, I'd like to keep my brogue boots a little more unique!

    Yeah, and they've captured an entirely different market to the other surviving shoe-makers who still manufacture in England. I asked about getting some C&J MTO recently and the price was pretty extreme. Still tempted, though...

    Whilst I really appreciate some of the MTO combinations, my own preference is for the more traditional Tricker's models, especially the older ones where their ongoing longevity is a big draw for me. These are the pair that I mentioned earlier, a standard navvy boot model which look to have been made on a similar last to the 'Skipton' veldt boots:

    And with the other 'vintage' models:

    Forgive me, guys, as a couple of these pictures are not of Tricker's, but I came home to three boxes from The Shoe Healer today.

    As always, Richard and Michelle were a delight. I wasn't familiar with Tricker's suede, but it feels great.

    Haven't cleaned them up yet... Most of this should come off, they've barely been worn.

    Anyone know the age based on that embroidery pattern? Can't seem to find it online.

    Great choices all around. Can you comment at all on the quality of the new AS ranges? It looks top notch.

    The Holburn feels to me very similar to an non-shell Alden in construction. It feels very solid and well-put together. The Doncaster looked like it had a very stiff leather in pictures, but it's probably the softest boot I've felt. Definitely the most comfortable boot out of the box I've had; I'm curious to see how it ages. I'm really impressed with both.

    Is the Doncaster the same as the one under Alfred Sargent exclusive/limited editions with Shoehealer? I dont see the name Doncaster on the website but I am assuming it is almost the same model. I have been looking at that model for months and my size is in stock.

    CTBrummie,

    Those are vintage Tricker's, not MTO using vintage last? Look real solid, no-nonsense. I like them.

    Thanks! They're black waxy calf. Here--https://www.shoehealer.co.uk/Alfred_Sargent/Exclusive_Collection/Alfred_Sargent_Holburn_2383.html



    I think that's the model that replaced the Doncaster. I would pull the trigger--the scotch grain is really nice.

    Yeah, they're vintage Tricker's and I agree, they look the dog's bollocks. Will look great with a well-worn pair of jeans...

    The leather on all those vintage models in that last pic is very solid, and the zug grain on the veldt boots is fantastic - Richard asked Tricker's if they could shed any light on the age of the veldts (which seem to be on the same or similar last as the navvy boots and have the same sock liner) but all they could suggest that they are 'possibly over 25 years old'. The leather on the 'new' boots looks similar to the marron antique currently in use.

    Not sure if you can see from the photo, but there are two addresses given on the sock liner: the usual Jermyn Street one and one for Old Jewry, which is in the City of London. I had a quick look but there doesn't seem to be any information around on Tricker's at this location. Might contact them direct to see if they can shed any further light on the matter...
