You may have noticed I have a thing for shoes. Whilst my collection of trainers, or sneakers depending on where you are in the world, which once ran to 100’s of pairs (and is still vast) diminishes with every passing year (I’m getting old) my collection of formal shoes grows to fill the void. I thought an addiction to rare trainers was costly, ain’t nothing next to high end footwear.
My latest addition is a Tricker’s brogue with Toe Patch, made on the 4444 last in Lollipop Waxy Commander Calf with Brass eyelets and natural calf lining. Fitted with a Barbour Welt in Natural finish with Commando Sole.
Love the chunky commando sole and red welt stitching, along with the strap at the front modelled on the kick start from motor cycle boots apparently, which is a nice touch and adds something different to the classic brogue design.
