    Nope, the order and colors are right (well colors were advertised as stated by Shoehealer and reTricker).

    Here's a picture of my C shade on double leather soles the day I got them from Shoehealer 5 years ago

    The evolution of the color is pure patina...

    This is why RETRICKERS is so great. They often have defects like this that are purely cosmetic or that you wouldn't even notice. If you liked the color as pictured, you basically got a pair of firsts.

    Totally agree with that, and when they have "real" flaws or defects David always takes a picture or describes it!

    The new Golden Tans are great. Congrats.

    I really like your oxbloods, too - especially the plain captoe on the left (Herrman?) Great collection.

    the only criticism I have of retricker is the lack of uk11 boots :happy:

    Thanks Gents! [​IMG]


    The captoe boots are a pair of Rippon.

    [​IMG]

    Polished with Mahogany Saphir cream they turn less reddish into a delicate brownished oxblood.

    Me, too. I need 10 1/2, which also comes with lots of competition! Seems like 8 is their sweet spot. I don't know if it reflects their sales in general, or if they only let the new folks work on size 8 shoes until they get up to speed.

    They should use the wrong color polish more often.

    Msaint, thanks for sharing all the fantastic photos. Your C shade looks especially nice. My Malton C-Shade is very dull looking and I only had it for a week or so and just recently applied Obenauf to it. There is no shine at all.

    Thom Browne shoes and boots are made by Tricker's right? What last are they on? 81 last?
