Just eyeing up a pair of Bourtons on the outlet site - but do these look like they are on a lightweight sole?

Just to clarify. The “lightweight” sole is a welt plus Dainite. A “regular” sole is welt, midsole and Dainite.

Going by the heal area... definitely looks like a mid-sole in there. So not a lightweight. ;)

The top row of numbers is some mysterious stuff the factory uses.
The second row usually identifies the model. The 6973 in your pic means it’s some kind of Bowood which is on the 4444 last.I Think it’s basically a two tone Bourton.
The bottom row is size and width. Lots of people mistake the “-5” as meaning half size but it’s for width and 5 means medium or standard. Tricker’s always indicate half size as “1/2”. That shoe is pretty clearly marked as size 6.
Great, thank for letting me know.

Are you a geisha girl?
It's probably because I've worn too medium width shoes and kinda still do now (which I SHOULD STRETCH WIDER) so my little toes are both diagonal. Because where I live, almost impossibru to find wide fitting shoes..

Do any of you people wear toe shapers regularly to get "shape back your feet" ? Want to know some thoughts

Apologies my comment was only a joke as a nine to fit in a six I guessed you’d strapped your feet! I’d have them sized and size appropriate to that. The thought to me of a half size town gives me shivers!

Don't worry, I got the joke :).My feet were quite cramped, but didn't think I'd manage to get them on, but theres a sad bit of truth, but nothing too shabby, atleast for now. There's some way to go to get to Shaquille O'Neals territory LOL :)

Should wonky or misaligned eyelets be regarded as a defect with Tricker's boots? I have seen many examples of Tricker's (and other manufacturers) where the eyelets seem staggered rather than level. While this may seem trivial, once seen, wonky eyelets can't be unseen. Oddly, I've never seen this fault at a Jermyn Street or Northampton shop, just online purchases.

The sale and festive season is approaching fast. What would be the best resources/sites for picking up Trickers at good prices (with global shipping options)? When do these sales typically start?

I had the same issue with some Loakes - once seen, never unseen. The spacing and alignment were well off. They agreed to replace these direct from the factory. 11F6B5DF-2E2C-4372-889D-0B17A184F6EE.jpeg
