    Fuck, Trickers longwing MTO came out amazing. The 81 last fits me way better than any of the other Trickers lasts I've tried and the choice to go with double leather sole instead of a dainite was def the correct one. By far my favorite pair of shoes. <3

    ...soooo, anyone want to order the same makeup in copper or marraca suede or something like that? :slayer:

    Having worn my Eatons a bit more, I'm going to change my vote to no 1. I really am liking the 4444 last with the bellows tongue. It's strongly fixed to my ankle, so the extra width is okay. Definitely needed to full size down from Barrie/Trubalance last, though.

    When are we putting this one through then?

    I think whenever all 6 of us ready to submit payment, then I'll make sure Richard is prepared to handle this.

    So we decided on the last/sole?
    Looked like the votes went towards 4444/commando. I'm good with that.

    Burgundy pulls? Brown?
    Anyway, I'm good with whatever Robin decides since he's doing all the work.

    Is there any interest in a shoe like bourton, keswick type model in a shade of brown or tan ? I live in Hong Kong and dont get too much opportunity to wear boots and would really like a Trickers Shoe. In my size MTO is the only option. Anyone ??

    Were we going to get red calf lining as well?

    Edit: One thing, the tongue on my Superdenim Monkey boots has a little groove where the laces go to keep the laces in place since it's not a bellows tongue. Is there any way we can get that on this boot as well?

    Yes, we can definitely do that.
    I'll add red lining to the note for Richard.

    So are a definite no-go on using dainite or double leather soles ? Are the commando soles much much thicker and bulkier ??
