These boots are so versatile-I wear them to shovel snow or to go on mild hikes in the Blue Ridge Mountains or when I am chopping and stacking wood for the fireplace. I beat them up on a regular basis. Then, a bit of cleaning and a smart polish and they wear perfectly to the office with dress pants or chinos. However, Tricker's footwear is a full size larger than US sizing. I wear a US 11D, and the Tricker's size 10 fit me perfectly.

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.

Upon taking these shoes out of the box you immediately understand why you paid so much for them. They are impeccably crafted and positively exude quality. The aroma of fine leather that greets you is itself worth the price of admission. If you appreciate fine workmanship and wonderful materials you will love these shoes.

These fit a little looser than an Alden Trubalance last. Meaning I wear a slightly wide 10D (in the right foot) and these are very comfortable in 9.5 medium width. I can wear thin or thick socks as the boots adjust accordingly. They are well constucted and will last me many years. I am looking forward to purchasing another pair in the future.
