i've seen some on the retrickers ebay actually. there's some brown zug ones on there now but with a commando sole.
you may have already noticed, but trickers use four names to differentiate subtle differences of the same boot (7 hole derby boot on the 4497S last).
buford - comes in marron, black and espresso with leather sole and 5 fitting
ripon - comes in c shade with leather sole and 6 fitting
wetherby - comes in c shade with commando sole and 6 fitting
grassmere - has a capped toe, comes in brown and black zug grain with commando sole and 6 fitting
anyone know what distuingeshes the super boot apart from the above? or is it a model reserved only for custom makeups?

Yeah I noticed most of that, really want a natural leather sole, and not really feeling c shade (only ones on bureau in a decent size run) still might have to make a decision over them and the black Burfords though. From what I can gather super boot or shoe is the collective name for that style, could be wrong though

anywhere other than present and the bureau sell specials? my have to plump for the black Sad

I thought the prices were a joke too. Other specials that I can think of are TBS, Nitty Gritty, End, The Hambledon and Triads.

Edit: The Hambledon do a Superboot, which may be worth looking at. Only pictures I can find online, sorry.

I think at the moment yes, some stuff on their new site, but I don't know if/when they'll start putting more online.

Hm, I've got a pair of Gorilla boots my housemate found in TKMAXX, these ones:


I used them as workboots once or twice so they have a few marks on them, nothing that couldn't be amended with a suede brush.

If you're willing to pay for postage I could send them your way.
