    Most welcome.
    Tricker's themselves, like most other UK Shoemakers consider just 'Half' a size difference between UK and US Sizes, so a regular fitting Dress Shoe in US 9, would be equivalent to a UK regular fitting Dress Shoe in 8 1/2.
    The Tricker's Grasmere on 4497s Last in Wide fitting 6 though, is considered around Half a Size Larger than a regular fitting Dress Shoe.
    This means a average US 9 would be roughly equivalent to a UK 8 in the Grasmere.
    My best policy with all of my customers is total honesty, so I must tell you that the above information is only an 'average' based on findings working with very many customers in our store.
    The only exceptions to this 'average rule' would be if a customer has a particularly Wide Foot, or a High Instep.

    For information, there is an average measured difference in Length in a Half Size, of just 4mm, and less than 3mm in the Width. This means if nothing else, there is very little margin for error.

    Grained Calf or Smooth Calf?
    For me, I would alwys go for Grained, if the Upper is likely to be scuffed or scratched a little. It can be much easier to accept marks on a Grained Leather. The 'Brown Zug Grain' Calf that the Grasmere is made form is perhaps a little rugged looking anyway, and might not look so bad with a few 'scars' here and there.

    Richard.

    Anyone know of any stores that stock a decent collection of Trickers in NYC?

    Some recommendations please. I'm trying to decide on which sole to get on Trickers Chukkas. Gumlite or Dainite. I like the cushion of the Gumlite, but the Dainite is thinner and probably wears better. Thoughts? Thanks much, Richard

    Not a lot in it in terms of thickness. Visually Dainite looks closer to a double leather sole - I prefer the appearance. Gumlite is slightly grippier on wet/slippery surfaces and wears better than you'd think for it's weight and softness, but isn't as hard wearing as Dainite.

    Just got off the phone with DHL in regard to a pair of Tricker's coming in from The Shoe Healer. Worst and first ever customs nightmare I ever experience.... they want an incredibly detailed description of the shoe (wouldn't know where to start) along with the first page of my 1040. No way.

    WTF they want your 1040 for?
    For fedex, I had to fill out a customs form 5106 which requires SSN.
    Seemed shady as hell but apparently it's legit.

    Either 1040 or copy of both sides of my Social Security card. But on top of that the import form asks for percentage of material, stock #s, construction details that I do not have. I'm sure people have gone through this before, but I have no time to deal with this until Saturday and the shoes have been in Cincinnati for 3 days already since my phone number on the parcel was mis-typed. So yeah.

    Update:

    Michelle from Shoe Healer provided a completed form. Thanks! Now let's see if DHL lets it go.
