    Those Junya's are sweet.

    Agreed on the Brass eyelet's.

    @rainbowgrease as its an initial enquiry I expect it will have to be at new price. Would you still be interested and open to marron?

    Thanks

    D.

    I've found 'marron antique' very hard to like, I don't think I can stay on the boat. ;p
    Perhaps someone with skill can put together a Photoshop version of the boots?
    I'll PM you if things change.

    you're talking about the junya superboots, right? really loved the makeup, but was reluctant to pull the trigger last season given the insane markup and bizzare sizing scheme:


    [​IMG]
    i'd be in for a group mto on this. prefer the smooth and continuous tone of the "acorn antique" over a "1001 burnished" toe, but am still open on that front.

    no dainite, though. commando is way preferable.

    here are two more photos of the leathers being considered.

    this one is of "acorn antique" on a natural welt:

    and this one is of "1001 burnished" on a natural welt:

    The suede Junya x Trickers boots were so nice... maybe the first boots that made me consider the Cristy sole.

    I like the specs on your boot, commando sole would be better for me as well.
    and 'acorn antique' is the way to go!

    1001 looks more orange on this latest set of pics?

    But yes, brown commando is the correct choice.

    Also reminds me how much I want a pair of monkeys :(

    Nice-one heterophilous, good to have you as a potential on-board...agreed on the commando sole. A sweet looking boot.

    Good to see that folk are interested in this and there's a chance this could make it to order!!

    Cheers

    so who are the all potentials we have on board now?

    DomD, his shoehealer contact, smartlew, rainbowgrease, and myself?

    that means maybe one or two more for a reduced price MTO . . .

    should we post to the "Official Tricker's Thread", and see if there are any other takers?

    so far it's looking like a perforated captoe boot on a commando sole, in either acorn or 1001 burnished?

    4497 last, i'm presuming? or is someone insistent on the 4444?

    does richard know what last the original junya makeup was on?

    i've never ever been able to get a concrete fix on that . . .

    Looks like the Acorn antique is favorable so far.
    According to Tricker's the Eaton boot is a "4497 " last, I am pretty sure the Junya is the same, I believe the "4444" last is a bit pointy and wider.

    4444 is the opposite of pointy.

    Hi

    Currently myself, rainbowgrease, yourself - heterophilous I've had a an expression from ERIII - ERIII you confirm you are still interested?

    Smartlew are you in? If so that's 5.

    Ducky - as per the thread its looking like acorn - are you in or out?

    Heterophilous do you want to post on the trickers thread - even if its a quick one liner to let them know about the proposed MTO - don't know what the forum rules are here?

    I'll email Richard and ask him about the last, unless zippyh or anyone else knows?

    Thanks All - hopefully a couple more will join soon!!

    Cheers
    Dom

    rainbowgrease, I have a Eaton in 4444, it's not a "4497 boot".

    Anyway, I've already a pair of Bourton in 1001 burnished. Besides, I can't fit 4497 so I'll pass.

    Ok thanks for clarifying the Eaton last.
    I would then go for a 4444 last.

    Actually, you can do an "Eaton" style boot in either 4444 or 4497. see for instance, this Shoehealer 4497 makeup here:

    https://www.shoehealer.co.uk/tricke...llery/tricker-s-eaton-coffee-burnished-detail

    IIRC, a lot of Richard's most recent Eaton makeups have been on the 4497. The fit is more true to size with the 4497 (i.e. a UK10=UK10).

    With the 4444, however, opinion is more divided about what size works best for what person.

    Some prefer to take Tricker's official advice about dropping done a half size from one's standard UK size. (i.e a UK10=UK9.5)

    But there are others who actually like the roomier fit at is.

    Is "ducky" on board for a perforated captoe "Eaton" spec (i.e. no medallion brogue), if it's on the 4444 last in acorn antique?

    I think it's worthwhile getting Richard's advice about sizing too on the 4444 . . .

    Hey DomD/ Great work soliciting interest on this.

    I don't think there should be a problem with us posting MTO specs on the other thread.

    Let's hear back from everyone here first, though. And then I'll go ahead and put up something there too . . .

    4444 & Acorn Antique!
    This is what Tricker's sent me a few weeks back in regards to the fitting on the 4497 last.

    " The 4497 last comes up true to size and we would suggest that you stick to a 6 1/2, if you normally wear a 6 1/2.
    If you have anything made on the 4444 last then go for a size 6."


    I would prefer the 4444 last since my current 4497 stow fits a bit tight on the upper.

    I am on the fence....really am into the 1001 Burnished vs. Acorn Antique. The 1001 is a less common color on the boot and has such a nice natural leather look vs. the Acorn that is more commonly seen, especially on Stow's.

    What is the vote count on the 1001 vs. Acorn?
    What is the price quote for this build?

    As to the last....I have both and prefer the 4444 (fitting5), it is a roomier fit in the toe box, both width and height. It also gives a more "rugged" proportion to a boot like this. If you don't have a wide foot than a half size down is a pretty good recommendation on size.

    I may be in if it's the 4444 last with commando sole.
    What's the consensus on the welt? storm or barbour? To be honest I've some problems to distinguish those 2.

    I have high instep and large feet.
    I have both 4444 and 4497 as well in the same size

    - 4444 is perfect fit, really comfortable from day 1.
    - 4497 is very tight in the toe box and instep (too tight actually, but half size bigger is way too big).

    I also prefer visually the 4444 last (more balanced imo)

    Have sent an email to Richard @ SH he's away for a few days so as soon as I hear back I'll update the Thread.

    I've asked a couple of additional Q's along with the info on the last.

    Cheers
