    I'm totally with you regarding the 2298 last much prefer it to the 4497. Unfortunately none of the boots I own are on that last........

    What's the GMTO? Can't believe I missed Teak shell!

    If I wear 7.5E/8D Barrie, would you suggest I size the 2298 as 7UK or 7.5UK?

    Cheers!

    /r/goodyearwelt setup a GMTO through Richard at the Shoe Healer. Basically it's THIS boot only on the 2298 last (instead of 4497) in Teak cordovan with a brown dainite sole. Natural welt and edge, 9 brass eyelets, tinted kip lining. Should be a pretty cool boot.

    I've never worn the 2298 so I'm not sure how much help I can be on a sizing recommendation. I sized down half from my barrie size (11.5D) to a 11UK fitting 5 on this new 2298 boot. I have a pair of Tricker's in the 4497 last in 11.5UK fitting 5 that are too big for me, so I'm hoping sizing down was the right call.

    Jesus, I was fawning over that boot in teak shell last spring. Will keep an eye on future GMTO proposals over there. Ugh.

    I heard Richard ordered a couple extra pairs. Might be worth shooting him an email to see if he has an unclaimed pair in your size.

    Different pattern, different last, different sole, different number eyelets, different lining, different pulltab, but otherwise...

    I love these. I've been wearing them 3 times a week since getting them. They look more like whiskey cordovan to me.

    and yes, customs friendly to the US.

    Quote: Not sure why you are being so sensitive. You asked for the difference and it was given. A link was provided as to what boot it was modelling, which is certainly different from the Allan model. Just because a boot is made similar to yours doesn't mean the inspiration was from you.

    Hi, nice pictures on the shop-closure message on ebay. It will be a long long time for the next Tricker´s from the shop... [​IMG] - that´s the text to the pictures:

    "We are closed from Tuesday 12.00 till 7.30 Monday the 5th January 2115"

    I really hope they don´t need a hundred years to relax from christmas & new year.

    Cheers to all of you
