zippyh, amazing haul. how many pairs of Trickers do you have? Im afraid to even guess at this point. Happy Birthday! I think these two are 17 and 18. is it crazy for me to think that these are the same color, just the sole and laces make the boots look lighter? Not crazy, but the Stows really are lighter. The natural sole and laces help them appear even lighter too. So glad I pulled the trigger on the grey LS Stows; really warming up to the brass eyelets on these, which I didn't like at first. Now when the hell will they reach a settlement in the Canada Post labour dispute so these can be delivered? Belated happy birthday z! It's like the fates are conspiring to keep you from owning Stows.
