MM I'm interested to hear that you are a big fan of 1001. I have just ordered a pair of boots in that colour and was wondering if I had done the right thing - hopefully I will like it as much as you do.

I am sure that you haven't made a mistake princealbert. I have a pair of MTO Henrys in 1001 ... they just get nicer and nicer. This is an early pic:



I also bought the Missus a pair of MTO Stephys in 1001:



Just need to find something for the cat now!

Wow MM! Looking good, looking very good.

Will try and post some pics of my 9 eyelet boots in 1001 when they arrive.

They are not an individual MTO, but an MTO that Pediwear have had made up which they call Hoylake on the 81 last.

I see from the most recent Shoehealer newsletter that Richard is doing a similar bulk MTO in Cofffee and in 1001 on the 2298 last.

By the way Pediwear have a 20% off Black Friday offer that is happening today and which includes Tricker's - definitely worth taking a look.

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.

Thanks to Richard for adding to my shell rainbow!!!

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.
