    Question about coloring for the Trickers regent in beechnut burnished:

    Which color is more accurate? Is the shoe dark brown or chesnut? I really can't tell considering various pictures seem to show very different complexions.

    This color:

    or:

    Actually, neither color accurately represents what those looked like irl. That pic, along with my other ones, were taken outdoors on a really sunny day and I didn't adjust hue/saturation afterwards... I'd say color is most like a really light brown/tan, without any hint of an orange hue, unlike what my pic suggests. Shoehealer pics are waaaaaaaaay too dark.

    No way. The wedge crepe sole makes that boot. The other one is okay, but not nearly as interesting.

    No, I stand by what I said. I've seen Trickers worn well several ways. One is the way I wear mine - sort of like an urban commando boot. Ironically, the commando sole is not the best for this. The crepe or the white Vibram sole (either the foam the the non-foam version) seem to work best for this. The vibram sole has been more trendy, but I think that you can't go wrong with crepe. I've also seen it worn in a modish type of way, and that works well on a more traditional sole. More popular is the country gentleman look, and that is bordering on cosplay, but imo, if you don't go all the way, there, you are probably just going to end up looking dull. And I, for one, do not want to look dull.

    Pair the crepe sole with a slimmer pair of jeans or pants, and you get a really cool, distinctive silhouette. Never dull.

    Disagree, the white crepe and the fact that its not even cut out to look like a sole of a normal shoe makes it very unattractive, at this rate even the alden crepe sole looks better (and i have issues with alden). if i wore those shoes anywhere i'd get laughed at, and i love trickers just that crepe sole could be corrected by 1. being darker, 2. having the shape of a sole
    in this current look, its very painful on the eyes,
    lets just agree to disagree, and admit we like trickers

    Saying that the a crepe wedge sole doesn't look like a sole is pretty ridiculous. I agree with everything Fok has said, though I like the Vibram white soles over the crepe. All the other Trickers are alright, but they aren't really interesting at all. Like people creaming their pants over the subtle differences of coffee, chocolate, blahblah whatever colorways was pretty funny when there are so many other awesome Trickers out there.

    i just love the look of the brogue boot with that double crepe sole

    I think they are the Hip ones

    they are maybe less classic but in the flesh they are beautiful

    i was really into the vibram thingy but the crepe sole is a nice alternative

    I think the crepe looks fine, but perhaps the edges could be a little more polished?
    The rough, off-white edge is a little too much contrast to the smooth, oiled-tanned calf leather.

    For those who have a well worn crepe pair, could we have some comments on the rebuildability of the soles?

    Crepe are really comfy but they soak all the dirt/mud from the outside and soil everything you walk on once in a house/office... [​IMG] In this case and in my opinion it transforms a beautiful pair of brogue boots in a hideous mix of styles, a real frankenboot! [​IMG] Regarding the flat white sole I like my classic Red Wings 877 much better, unchanged look since the 50's. [​IMG]
