    Dude, are you serious? I'd never let my trickers near a drizzle.

    They're made to be worn. I don't tromp through slushy melt pools but with some sno-seal or similar treatment, leather can easily handle a bit of snow. I don't stand around all day in deep snow -- I have real snow boots for that, and even that cheap leather holds up great with a little care. Plus, snow is not as wet as rain, being frozen and all.

    My Lollipop Red Woodstocks from Richard at Shoe Healer. I'm expecting another pair of Tricker's tomorrow and will post that up when time permits. Note that they look brighter or more red in the pictures because of the flash.

    Richard is seriously a great gentleman to deal with. In the several months that I've known him, I have bought about 7 pairs of shoes from him already, and will continue to do so.

    I like to wear my Trickers with commando sole around in slushy weather, too. Wore them out today and they were perfect for the slushy, wet streets of NYC. Here are couple pics:

    Just for interest, this model is based on the original 'Woodstock' model which would usually be made on the 4497s Last. We have most of our Bulk MTO made on the 4444 Last as although it is more generous fitting, resulting in most wearers dropping Half a Size, we generally find it is a better fititng Last.

    huh? i don't get this at all... surely this kind of boot is intended for trekking through the rainy/muddy english countryside..
    ripons are my go-to boot for rainy days in London, and have held up well. also have some barker harrisons which apparently have a built-in waterproof lining, again they've worked out well in wet weather conditions.

    Sorry for another question about Tricker's sizing, but I need a little bit help.
    My wolverine 1000 mile boots are size UK8 (US9D), they fit ok with a thin sock without shoe insoles.
    Now I'm wondering what is right size for me in Tricker Stows (i guess UK8 or UK8 1/2).

    Basically my question is, Are tricker's UK sizes bigger than Wolverines UK sizes?

    Thank you guys!

    And Ferrari's are made to drive 180mph all day, nobody really does that.

    Do what you want but I was taught to take care of my stuff. Made to handle it or not, trashing hand made boots just doesn't make sense to me.

    I wear a UK8 in the 1000 mile boots and a UK 7.5 in the stow.

    And both fits nice?
    I lived in believe that Wolverines 1000 miles sizing runs huge.

    Thanks.

    They both fit nice and snug...If you want to wear a thick sock, which I don't, I'd go up a 1/2 size.
