    They look fantastic, NAMOR. Glad to see that they ended up in good hands (feet).

    These are great for hiking and I almost felt a sense of regret taking them to the mountains. They can appear rugged, but they look great in office wear. Thanks again!


    :cool:

    I agree with you guys. At the end of the day you its about what looks best to you. Once you begin spending $500 on a pair of shoes, you are making a conscious investment in your apperance and to say that one look is better than the other is just silly.


    Trickers have a different austetic that isnt better or worse than Alden. Just different. If you have too much of one or the other, switiching it up can be fun. Quality-wise, I would say they are just about the same. I would give the slight edge to Trickers just because I have never had the stiching issues with them while several pairs of Aldens have come apart in the vamp, heel, etc after just a few wears. An ebay'er from the UK offers a various trickers for about $400ish. Also, Sierra Trading Post has them. Of course you also have the online UK retailiers like Bereau Belfast that ship to U.S.

    Thanks, Uncle. I followed the break-in procedure, which was most helpful. Perfect comfort and just started hour 14 wearing (as I finally head home for the day).

    Mine came in today. Laced only one of them up to give a quick try. This is my first Grant lasted shoe and think I'm going to like it.
    Beautiful boot

    Thanks, I am very pleased with my purchase and I am sure you will be too!

    I appreciate the compliment. They're a great-looking pair of boots.
