    Ah, yes ... my Henrys and my partner's Stephys were MTO make-ups through Shoe Healer.

    Those Hoylakes will burnish beautifully.

    20% off is a good deal ... very tempting but I am just not in the market for boots right now. Also (whisper it on here) but my next purchase is likely to be a pair of C&J Snowdons.

    Were those the pair on his Clearance page, size 9? I fought the urge to buy them several times. I sort of regret that I didn't.

    New Tricker's Hoylake in 1001 burnished calf from Pediwear. Basically a 9 eyelet boot on the 81 last.

    I've been itching to get a pair of these after Zippy posted some pictures of similar pair that he owns on the 81 last. I was particularly wanted to find something with blind eyelets. These have a mix of eyelets and speedhooks similar to the C&J Coniston.

    A more pointed toe but still plenty of room in the toe box.

    I'm seriously pleased with these.

    I agree the 2298 and 81 fit pretty much the same - both true to (UK) size.

    See below for a comparison - the Robert shoe on the right is on the 2298. The boot on the 81 last has a slightly more pointy toe. Hope this helps.

    They use Comipel cordovan.
    It's good enough that I've bought multiple pairs of Tricker's cordovan models.
    The interesting color availability helps too.

    Zippy, you see those Bonafe monkey boots in the Skoak thread? I thought they'd be up your alley

    You talk to Richard at The Shoe Healer, and you organize a group MTO (made to order). It'll probably cost something like $700-ish and take a number of months, if you can get enough people on board. Check the Tricker's MTO thread too…..
