    I have a pair with vibram gumlite that I posted a little while back, half size big on me will probably end up selling them

    Nice to hear that you liked them.
    Yes, they are MTO. There is nothing special/out of the ordinary about them I think, I just tried to have my first pair as simple as possible, but at he same time that extra toutch that goes well with what I usually wear. I have a high instep and I also need a wider fitting because of a MTO insole I have to use, so MTO was something I went for to get what I wanted... and needed :)

    The barbour welt is actually "natural finish" but a mix of Saphirs black02 and cognac10 on the top of the welt and some more black on the side of the welt helped tone down the contrast to the Burgundy Burnished Calf and bring it all more togheter, but at the same time keep enough contrast. The lining is black calf, It might be a little dull, but I think it goes well with the "Burgundy/Black theme.

    Already thinking of what next, this tread is full of inspiration and I will defintivly get me another pair of Tricker`s. I guess I will place a new order at The Shoe Healer in a month or two... no, make that just one month :)

    Those Eatons are awesome.

    Are those plain toes? I seem to recall rkusmant asking about an Eaton without medallion and Tricker's quote an absurd upcharge of something like 2K. GBP.

    Yes they are, with a straight cap with no medalion. But brouge details/puncing along the stitches are kept, also around the quarter and the heel. All stitches are black, including the stiches on the natural finished barbour welt.

    Regarding the price, I got a very fair price and I dont`t think these boots cost more than the regular upcharge for a MTO order [​IMG]

    Hello folks. I'm hoping to acquire a quick bit of advice ...

    I have acquired some Tricker's longwings. Fine shoes, but they have a light-natural welt, which after several weeks of deliberation I have concluded is just too light for my liking.

    Does anyone know how best to darken the welt without discolouring the white stitching, or damaging the leather?

    Thanks in advance.

    Any recommendations for hard-wearing laces? I've gone through two sets of Tricker's own laces on one pair of Bourtons in the past 18 months.

    Try a couple of coats of Neatsfoot oil.

    I think if Trickers now makes perf cap toe with no brogueing, we can certainly push it for group MTO

    I'll be game for a perf cap toe if it's on 4444 last.
