    Disagreed
    Actually Saphir Reno has stripped off the brown color of my coffee burnished galosh

    Two questions:

    1. I tried on a UK size 9 pair of Tricker Maltons using their number 6 last - the wide one. They were definitely too big for me, at least half a size, but maybe a full size. I was thinking of trying the size 8s on the same last. They'll likely be a bit too small, but will they eventually stretch to accommodate my feet? Is this a silly idea?
    2. The ones I can buy have the commando sole, with quite substantial lugs. It's pretty impressive, but I'm going to be wearing them in urban environments 90% of the time. Is this a comfortable option?

    Reno can be lethal to certain finishes. I wouldn't recommend using it as a regular conditioner at all - there's been a fairly extensive discussion on the subject on the shoe care thread on the Classic Menswear forum...



    They won't stretch that much. And comfort is subjective but commando soles aren't necessarily an uncomfortable option for walking in.

    So would you suggest making sure that they fit true and comfortably on first wear?

    Would a plain or Dainite sole be better for urban wear?

    Edit: here's a marked up image with the thoughts on my fit:

    Yes to your first point, and up to you on your second. There's no 'best' sole option to have as it's down to personal preference but some soles will be better in some conditions than others...

    Thanks for your help, CTBrummie. Definitely worth mulling over.

    That makes sense though I do wonder how warm the boots can be in snowy condition. Perhaps I'm better off getting a pair of dedicated snow boots but I'm rather reluctant to pony up for something that I'll use once in a blue moon.


    Are you able to get hold of a pair in UK 9, fitting 5? That might be a better fit for you

    In theory, though I'd have to give up the substantial discount I could have the fitting 6s for. However, a well fitting £400 boot is most useful than a poorly fitting £300 boot.

    New to the forum here! Just wanted to thank all you contributors...was looking for some boots for this winter (in the UK) and came upon this forum, ended up setting my sights on getting some Trickers boots with Commando soles after all to positive comments, reviews and good looking photo shots.

    Well low and behold I ended up purchasing four pairs of Trickers and couldn't be happier. I just can't get over how well made and comfortable they are, the wideness and thick soles must play a part here. i am truely chuffed to bits. Looks like I have got the bug and this will be a long lasting affair..

    Welcome to the forum. The shoes look great. Thanks for sharing the pics. Enjoy the shoes! I haven't ventured into Trickers yet but have been eying the Stow on Commando.

    Have a great weekend all

    Good catch! Didn't realize that there was another line.
