    They seem to me to be a misguided attempt to cash in on the "yoof" market.It is hard to know who would buy any of these shoes at the prices they are asking.Having said that, I knew a woman who paid £75 for a baseball cap because it was made by Gucci! Maybe she-and others like her-will buy these abominations?
    Some of Trickers odder items -Scotchgrain chukka boots with red soles,waxed leather brogues in 3 clashing colours-can already be found at huge reductions on e-bay.I suspect it won't be long before the entire Corniche range joins their ranks.
    I love Trickers boots and brogues and their MTO service but,sadly,I must concur that this current range is an embarrassment to a fine heritage.

    Hmm that other pair, not so good - but these are ok (I think).

    I was drawn to the word "Corniche"

    IMHO, it is the same as Common Projects trying to make dress shoes\ boots...not working...

    It's astonishing how badly they could get it wrong.

    They might as well change their brand to Tricksters, it goes better with this range of shoes.

    The Corniche line has been quite criticized, mainly with good reason - especially looking at the two-tone lace-up boots.

    However I actually found the boat shoes, Norfolk, quite a good deal today at a 55% discount. Seems like most of the shops are selling Corniche with a major discount these days.
