Lost Souls

Steve Davies (one half Present, Lost Souls, ex duffer) put a crepe wedge sole unit on a trickers boot for lost souls, and then a vibram unit to combine best of two boots (trickers and red wing) bureau bought or wanted to stock the lost souls x trickers, then made their own. Steve then did them again for Present.

Can anyone recommend some good shoe trees that aren't too expensive?
Ideally on ebay. Did start to look but so many on there. Would be good if someone can recommend some that they have bought themselves.

Probably costs them around £50 quid more to make than a normal pair.

Jokes.

Jones do some good ones, usually £17 but they knock them down to 50% off around this time of year.

rural wrote: Size up on Trickers boots Puzzled It's like when Phikz and Robii said they could barely fit into true to size common projects.

Huh? Wasn't me. I sized down and they were too narrow. Never tried them in my true size

Not usually a fan of that style of toe cap, but these Vibergs look great. The only issue is that the tongue looks as thought it could be a little bit too long.
