Have anyone seen these in the flesh? Hows the quality?
I was looking at trickers or something similar, but these have a nice darker color which I prefer.
Not seen them in the flesh but APC quality won't be anyway near trickers.

and what is best resole option when they fucked or is it then a case of FTB?

If they're the ones I'm thinking of, they're like foam, wear down ridiculously quick. I think they're a cinch to resole though and you can get some red danite ones which are a lot more hard wearing if you're still after that look

I sized down to a UK9 (i'm a uk10) on my grenson fred boots but wore them for the first time today and they're tight width wise, which is bloody annoying cos they seem to fit okay when I tried them on. Do they tend to stretch out much? Might just keep to my red wings… if anyone wants them they're the black pair, worn once mint, £135 shipped (retail £230).

A good cobbler will stretch good shoes out width wise quite easily

why not go and try them on,ant one of the hundreds of stockists nationwide, this will avoid you getting the size wrong as only you know how you like something to fit and will also allow you to decide if you actually like trickers on, its a very different type of shoe to a visvim interpretation , generally much heavier and much stiffer, its not for everyone and neither are the lasts, they might look like the right thing on the internet but you should look at them on your feet.

I've just bought some Red Wing Chukkas size 9 and I'm normally a 10 (apparently you should size down 0.5 or 1). If it's too short/narrow, can a cobbler sort it?

A cobbler should be able to stretch them out a little, but in my experience it doesn't actually make much difference.
