    I wouldn't be too concerned about putting a coat of sno-seal or anything on the soles of the shoes. I would think once you take a few steps on any concrete or asphalt, you're going to scrap all of that off pretty quickly anyway. I wear my double leather soled shoes pretty frequently in wet weather. As long as I am not standing in puddles up over the welts I've never had a problem. In my experience, the only thing to worry about when wearing those types of soles in wet weather is when you come inside and walk on any marble or tile floors... if the floors are wet, it can be pretty slick with those shoes (but once you remember to think about it, it's never really a problem).

    895 is pretty wild, but how often do you see shell trickers? Plus currency conversion.

    LS has always done a hefty markup, which I believe has to do much with customs, shipping costs, in addition to currency conversion. Don't usually get away with customs/taxes when you've got a huge box full of shoes coming through customs.

    I think they procure themselves from different tanneries depending on the color.
    I've 3 pairs of Tricker's and I find the one in coffee burnished better than burgundy burnished or 1001, but maybe Im paranoid.

    I don't think LS is charging more than other US retailers for Tricker's. Grahame Fowler in NYC charges $650 for calf boots.

    $895 is just too much for Comipel Cordovan.
    (Of course I did pay around $800 for some orange cordovan boots from the Bureau Belfast last year.)

    I didn't mean that LS is charging more than other US retailers, just saying most of the mark up is passing along cost of duties/taxes, shipping, etc that LS had to pay.

    Hey guys, I was speaking with Rich at Shoe Healer and he suggested that I float this question here to get your experiences. I'm looking at shoes in the 4444 last in the 5 fit. I usually wear 10E in the US size. Any thoughts? Thanks

    In my experience, the 4444 is pretty wide, so I think you'd be fine with the 5 fitting. You're a 10E in which brands/lasts? I'm an 8.5E in most Allen Edmonds & an 8.5D/8E in the Alden Barrie last, and I take a 7.5 in the 4444.

    I have a pair of brand new Stow boots in coffee leather with dainite sole that are surplus to my requirements. UK size 8.5 regular fitting.

    I will sell them at £240 and this includes shipping anywhere in the world. I will accept paypal (+4%) or bank transfer (only if you are in the UK).
