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

Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
None my size, of course...
I loved the short stows in burgandy, i would be well up for a group mto, in something like that!
Stubby Stows from the Bureau a while ago.
The red ones are simply astonishing...
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!
Hnnngh those are my size. Pity I don't ride.
For bikers! I was wondering what that was for. Makes perfect sense.
If these didn't have those overlays, these would be mine.
