Exceptional, gorgeous boots.

I've been loyal to three brands of shoes and dress boots: Alden, Allen Edmonds and Ferragamo. But I've always wanted to try England's version of Alden, Tricker's. I have a trusty pair of England-made (not China-made) Dr. Martens and Tricker's seems like a dressier version. So when Sierra Trading Post had their Black Friday sale, I got a pair of the Derby boots in coffee color for less than half off. Boy, am I glad I did. These are outstanding boots. Really classy looking and yet more casual than Alden wing tip boots. Don't get me wrong: I love Alden. But these Tricker's have, for lack of a better way to say it, more "cool" factor. They're absolutely perfect with jeans and a dress shirt.

The real bonus, of course, is their off-road capabilities. I live in Alaska and we don't salt the streets or sidewalks because it attracts moose, so the entire world is a solid sheet of ice for six months a year. Walking out of the office in leather-soled dress shoes for lunch or a meeting is a great way to break a leg. These Tricker's boots with the Danite soles are a life saver or, more accurately, a leg saver.

And, again, they look really sharp. I've never had so many random compliments about a pair of footwear. They're much better-looking in person than in pictures. I can't say enough good things about these Tricker's. If this gives you a clue as to my level of enthusiasm, within about fifteen minutes of trying on my new Tricker's, I logged on to Sierra Trading Post and bought a pair for my brother, again for less than half off.

They're expensive, but if you can swing it, I highly recommend picking up a pair for yourself.
