There's 20 percent off Trickers Outlet now, anyone got their eye on anything?

PS - It makes this boot worth £245 now, doesn't seem that popular with the vast number of sizes available. Holding out for perhaps a Shell in the future, saving those pennies.

Shell is definitely worth trying. I’m impressed with my 1st shell pair so far and they should hopefully get better.

@Crafty Cumbrian How are you getting on with your shell pair?

Seller just listed 'Zug'. Don't know how old are they, maybe someone can tell?

I think that kind of nail pattern on heel means they are fairly old. Exactly how old I have no idea.

Did they not sell? They’re really nice.

I saw a NOS pair of Keswick on eBay made for a shop which no longer exists. Was fairly tempted as they looked nice but price was quite high.


Would probably be a touch big for me also

Not loads of wear as has been ridiculously wet! New to shell but a wet spot when got caught in a shower suggested higher maintenance!
I believe the wet spots disappear with a bit of brushing etc but I also have been avoiding wet conditions with my shell pair.

I think for the most part it just needs a lot of brushing and very occasional conditioning. Maybe once a year?

Conditioned mine already as a couple of dry spots. Consensus of the internet suggested those could’ve been avoided in the clicking stage but as shell is at a premium they leave it sometimes. Improved the shine straight away. Been ridiculous weather to be fair.

Yep, hardly any opportunities to wear mine.

@Reiver the pattern on the medallion of those NOS Keswicks is subtly different from the current one. They look to be from the 1980s or earlier. As you can tell I take an unhealthy interest in that kind of detail....

Good plan, I’m sure they’d be very reasonably priced
Ha, indeed :)

Yeah, it looks really unique. Not sure what colour I’d go for though, they all look great in their own ways. Do Trickers make a limited stock shell boot every year or is it incredible rare for them to do it?

Now they have the bank holiday sale, 20% off. lol That’s something else, that.

Also, see the Stow is available in various colours and textures, including marron.

Good job I’m all booted out. 🙂👍

Could have saved £55 if I had waited . Not worried tbh , I’ve always done well with sales etc.. and I think not being to hung up on the £s helps .

Pics from my visit with my Tony at Botanic Boot & Shoe Repairs . He’s restoring a pair for an older gent , who happened to find a shoe catalogue from 1915 in his loft and gave it to Tony .View attachment 1228554View attachment 1228555View attachment 1228556View attachment 1228557View attachment 1228558View attachment 1228559View attachment 1228562
I’ll take the Willow Calf style number 121, comes with free delivery which is a plus. I tried sending payment by homing pigeon but unfortunately I’ve not hear anything back.

They didn't sell, but not relisted yet. I thought they could be really old, and the darker leather could be a result too.

They look like Otley.

In fact, they are Otley.
Are Otley 'zug'? I googled,the Otley grain and color from what I see, are more 'modern' than the listing, which could be just a special order for some store.
