I wore my Bourtons today for a couple of mile walk, I’ve had them a few years and still wouldn’t say they are fully broken in and my heels would agree. I don’t wear mine enough TBH, but persevere with the process and you’ll get there

Have to agree with this. Mine can still give me a bit of grief after a few miles around the heel. Much better than when new though and I don’t wear them loads.

I still managed to nab a pair of Stows on the Simple vente, it's not really the color I wanted at the start, I would have preferred a C-Shade or a Chestnut, I hesitated between Brown and Acron and I finally took Brown for fear of getting bored of Acron.
this is my first pair on the last 4497S, which I find narrow compared to the 4444 and even the W2298, it fits me like an 8.5 uk and I'm surprised the runners are really thin compared to the Bourton and Axton.

I picked up the Acorn Bourtons from the outlet store sample sale. There's some scuffing on the edge of the right shoe, as pictured in the first photo, but otherwise they look to be immaculate. These are my first pair of Tricker's and I'd say it's not a bad introduction for £140. I have a pair of Visone Suede Bourtons on the way as well, so I'm already headed down the rabbit hole...

Down we go....
Great catch. Crazy value. I got a stow last time for like £180!

slightly off topic but I know a few on here have some of Grenson’s higher end offerings and was wondering how they’re finding them?

@Crafty Cumbrian I seem to remember you had some suede monkey boots?

The reason is because I just saw someone wearing some of the veldt shoes in snuff suede and they looked brilliant.

Rare that I spot anyone wearing decent footwear in the wild but these looked like just my thing!
I love the Grenson Triple welts generally, although they seem a bit marmite, love or hate. Unfortunately they do seem to be moving firmly toward bookbinder offerings.
