    I like how the edge turned out with those Monkey boots.
    Do you know what last the Monkeys are on?

    Any idea what is this Gorse calf that is only available from Trickers and whether I am better off with pebble grain cowhide? Need a hard wearing upper country boots.

    It's a waxy, water-resistant calf leather that's traditionally been used by English bootmakers for country footwear although the only other maker I know of who offers it at the moment is Alfred Sargent, on their Dumfries boot and Appleby brogues.Crockett & Jones and Edward Green have versions of it available for MTOs. It has a very 'matte' feel to it, compared to regular calf.

    'C-shade' is Tricker's signature gorse colour, and they've been using it for years.

    I've heard zug grain described as embossed gorse leather, too.

    If you're after something hard-wearing then a Malton or Wetherby would fit the bill nicely. I'd take gorse or zug over pebble grain for outside use, although the latter might look a little more 'interesting'.

    I'm about to order the Tricker's Grasmere (zug grain). These will be my woods/country/winter boots going forward. From everything I read these can take a beating!

    Following from that, does anyone here own the Grasmere? How do you like them? I hear they are a little harder to break in. How do you like the way they aged? Any feedback would be nice! Thanks, Jim

    I'm shopping for a winter boot, and was just about to email Richard for some recommendations based on what I need. Let us know what you think when you get them!

    I will, but just to let you know I'm having them fitted with the Vibram Gumlite sole. The older I get the more I crave flexibility and comfort. I ordered them today, they should ship next week.

    From Tricker's ebay shop today.
    Why would they do such a thing to some innocent cordovan?

    Well, if you're a biker (with style hence the Tricker's boots) it makes perfect sense!

    Still, its looks like the boots each have a Band-Aid!

    For bikers! I was wondering what that was for. Makes perfect sense.

    If these didn't have those overlays, these would be mine.
