The Tricker's on you

Trickers Brogue boot 01


Tricker's has created these three pairs of boots for Norse Projects.

I don't know if it's just me, but the Prussian blue color of these Brogue boots just stares at me. The pair looks half-serious and half-playful. Look at it long enough and it smiles at you like a Cheshire cat. (No, I'm not insane.)

The serious part, of course, lies in the perforated brogue detailing. The playful, in the fact that the style has been appropriated for boots. The mischevous, in the clay-colored soles, which pout like a defiant lower lip.

The thickness of the laces is just right; they don't draw away attention from the leather.

Complements: prussian blue and clay orange.


Trickers Brogue boot 05


Ready for battle. All you need are khakis or severely washed denim.


Trickers Malton 01


The Malton is much more prim and upright.


Trickers Malton 02


I think these could be worn under slightly loose chinos, or if your boss doesn't mind, tuck both loose and skinny trousers inside the boots.

Looks like these can almost melt in your hand.


Trickers Malton 04


The handwritten touch. Better than printed numbers.


Trickers Malton 05


Detailing at the heel.


Trickers Malton 06


Good for raw denim, or medium-washed jeans.


Trickers Malton 07


A closer look. As if the craftsman/cobbler/leather cutter wrote you a note.


Trickers Malton 08


Pouch. Extra laces! How considerate.


Trickers Malton 09b


Wax and an after-care guide.


Trickers Staw 01


The Staw, a dark chocolate version.


Trickers Staw 02


Strange that changing the color almost changes the pair's character.


Trickers Staw 03


See for yourself.

Trickers Staw 09


Trickers Staw 10


Comes with heel guards. Pristine soles are meant to be soiled.


Trickers Staw 11


Since you can always clean up after.

Trickers Staw 12


No trick in that.
