    nut brown or gold mc ? I'm trying to decide on which color to get. In the STP thread whynot posted some great pics in sunlight of the gold mc, which look great.

    Those are nut brown. I just posted a much better picture in Waywt but I'lll post it here too; they look great in natural light.

    How do you guys condition / take care of your Trickers? Any tips to share with me? [​IMG]

    Treat them the same as any leather shoe boot; regular conditioning (lexol is fine if you're in the states), and regular polishing with wax or shoe cream (I tend to use cream about 1 in 4 polishes, but some folks exclusively use one or the other). I use Kiwi or Cherry Blossom wax, others favour Saphir. You could probably use Obernaufs, but traditional wax polishes will build up a nice patina over time.

    Thanks, MoK!

    These really are going to be my first pair of nice shoes outside of some baller sneaks (college student), so I'm pretty new to this entire thing. I won't be wearing them much - maybe once or twice a month - so will I need to condition them regardless of whether they get use or stay in my closet? How often would you recommend them be conditioned?

    I condition most of my leather boots and shoes about once a month if they're being worn regularly. If they're not then once every 4 months. It literally takes 2-3 minutes a shoe so I'd rather play it safe. If they've got particularly wet then I condition more often. Keep them away from radiators/heaters/boilers and out of direct sunlight and with minimal attention they'll last well, particularly if you take the effort to build up a few layers of wax when they're new. Some folks wil spend an hour or so on one pair of boots, but I find the little and often approach works for me. There's multiple threads on shoecare on the MC side and you'll get multiple opinions.

    I noticed more and more that Commando sole boots are being used for streetwear rather than off road.

    How's the durability of the commando soles for regular pavement walking. Do they wear down too fast?

    in this little picture the boot looks really sleek/slim and good looking. But on the Shoehearler's website it looks a lot more stubby and chunky.

    So which is it?


    you can click the pic if it's too small, this image was made on Photoshop to show Richard what I wanted (Scotch grain leather, Dainite sole, ski loops and color) so for the real thing it's all about the pics on Shoehealer site!
