    I almost pulled the trigger on those but I could not find any info on the last. I think it was last 81? I ended up getting a chukka Viberg boot. So how do you like the fit? They are stunning in their simplicity... I would love to see more cap toe Trickers.

    Did you get your usual size on the Viberg chukka? I saw that Barneys and Tate + Yoko had them but ended getting a Yuketen Chuck from Rooneys.

    Yeah, they're on the 81 last. It's similar to the W2298 that the STP Not Stows use.
    Definitely narrower than the usual 4497/4444 country lasts.
    Kind of a pain to lace/unlace so many eyelets but I really like the look.

    Yes, I got them from Tate. I'm between the UK 9 and UK 9.5. Their UK 9.5 fit great. I'm usually a US10E. They are one of the best made boots I have seen, and extremely comfortable.

    That's what I thought. Right now I'm getting more interested in the logger boot. To bad Shoe Healer doesn't carry them - Superdenim has them - but I rather deal with Shoe Healer.

    On STP? Please elaborate if you don't mind, I'm pretty relentless about checking what's eligible for the dealflyer savings. Cheapest I ever see them is ~$500 STP retail minus 40% through my dealflyer email link.

    There was one model that they marked down to $300-something before coupon code, so it came to $220. But it was very limited sizes.

    At the same time, they raised one boot to the $500's.

    I think the $220 Tricker's chukkas were on vibram gumlite soles.

    The pair of Tricker's I have with the "Robert" name are longwings on the W2298 last.
    Those are plain toes, so I have no idea if they're related.
    Tricker's use Comipel cordovan. It's okay but a lot thinner than Horween.

    Maybe Robert is not just a model but a family model, what is strange is that I can't find it in the Tricker's website. Anyway, you seem happy with your shoes and that's enough for me.

    My bad. My longwings are called the "Richard" not Robert.

    Robert was a custom order model from the Jermyn Collection.

    Can someone confirm that Tricker's always uses UK sizing on their boxes and shoes/boots?

    My friend bought a size 8.5 pair online, but the seller can't confirm if they're a UK or US size 8.5

    Since it's winter and others might be using waterproofing products, here is a pic of my Acorn Stows after using SnoSeal. It soaked in nicely and did not really change the color (which is a concern with some products). [​IMG]

    my latest additions - before a complete Saphir overhaul

    Trickers could only add that they were style 9664 found in an old brochure from the 1970s - ‘Medium brown gorse calf, round toe, Flex Dri-Ped leather sole"

    They have wonderfully thick leather which buffs up great. Have been resoled well with a "Downton" waterproofed leather double sole that Trickers are not familiar with.
