    There are a few pairs of Stows and other country boots on the Tricker's ebay store (retricker1829) right now.
    Remember they take off VAT.

    Does anyone here have any experience with Tricker's Cordovan? I was wondering if it was equal/superior to horween, I read somewhere that Tricker's source is from Argentina.

    I have the Tricker's Robert Tramper in mogano cordovan. Leather is from Argentina.

    I am not able to compare it to Horween as it is the only cordovan shoe I own; but I am happy with it.

    can you provide us with pics? I'm interested in the color/quality.

    Thanks

    I fail to see the correlation. What if the member never needs to use one?

    either way, does anyone have experience with tricker's cordovan? I read that japanese cordovan isn't as good as Horween, and I am planning on ordering a cordovan tricker's boot, so I am seeking advice on whether Tricker's Argentinian cordovan is at least as good.

    the correlation is you own a $500 pair of shoes but cant afford a $50 camera or at least a smart phone w/a camera? look to each his own, but owning a cell phone w/a camera or a small digital camera is a must

    I still don't see the correlation. Why is it a 'must'? My step dad makes a crap load of money, has expensive shoes, but owns a standard issued cell phone that he gets for free. And he also doesn't have a digi cam either.

    What you're saying is the equivalent of saying if you make over 6 figure, you need to drive a BMW or a Benz.

    Not sure if anyone can help me with sizing but here's what I wear in other shoes brands.

    Allen Edmonds: 8.5 e-- Slighty, slighty wide yet more comfortable than 9.0D, extra length
    Clarks Desert Boots-- 8.5D-- Good in regards to width, yet slight long in length.
    Adidas Stan Smith-- 9.0D
    LL Bean Engineer Boots-- 8.5 D-- Good fit when tightened up.


    I know this aient the typical shoe profile for a Trickers' buyer, but I'm hoping one of you might be able to give a suggestion.

    BTW I'm looking at the Tricker's Woodstock/Keswicks


    anyone?

    Thanks

    well trickers are wide to begin with, so just go with US size - 1
