    Yes, I saw that, but I like your color a lot better! Unfortunately, 8.5-9UK in the 4497. Enjoy those boots!

    looks great. what does it mean to have the boot split? did the outsole or welt come undone?

    Hello Namor.

    It didn't involve the sole, it was a split on the upper, along the outside quarter panel seam, just back from the facing, level with the second eyelet up from the bottom. It wasn't the two parts coming apart, as the stitching stayed intact ... it was a definite tear of about 4cm in length.

    I cannot be exactly sure why they split there, as it isn't a high-stress point of the boot. Either a weakness in the leather or possibly a manufacturing error. I can't say which. One of those things that unfortunately happens sometimes.

    Anyhow, the replacements are great and I wore them today ... super comfortable and they look lovely with jeans.

    Best,
    MM

    How's the sizing on Tricker's Chukkas?

    I've tried on an UK9 Tricker's derby (Bourton). It was just slightly too roomy, about half a size too big. I usually wear 43EU/10US.

    Are their chukkas similarly sized? I could get a pair in UK9 I like for fairly cheap, but I'd rather not waste everyone's time and shipping fees just try it and return it if it's guaranteed to be half a size too big again. Thanks.

    Fit entirely depends on the last.

    "On the last"? I don't understand that expression.

    Anyway here's the shoe in question:

    You should use google to understand lasts abd shoe construction. It won't take long and will serve you quite well. Nobody can help give you good advice otherwise

    All right, I understand what you're talking about now. Had never heard that term before.

    How can this knowledge be put to use when purchasing shoes online? I should try to find out the specific last that was used while putting the shoe together?

    Tricker's chukkas are available on several different lasts. Typically the 4444, 4497 or 2298.
    4444 fits big (Bourton is on the 4444).
    4497 is not quite as big (Stow is usually on the 4497).
    2298 is more or less TTS.
    There are a bunch of other lasts they use for chukkas but they're not as common but are pretty much TTS.

    I wouldn't buy a pair of of Tricker's unless I knew what last it was on.
    For lasts, you generally just need to know 4444 fits big, 4497 fits slightly big, and everything else pretty much is TTS.

    I have a pair of Kensingtons in Beechnut and they are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I have (other brands I have are C&J EGs Paraboot Ferragamo & Berluti). They are quite spacious and are very soft and cushy, good cork in the sole I'm guessing.
