Gregory Derby Boot
Built on the iconic 4497S last, the ConsTruct Gregory features 8 brass eyelets with a natural Barbour welt, bright blue pull tabs which are symbolic to our ConsTruct range as well as a natural lining, a tonal stitch, and a rugged brown commando sole. The ConsTruct Gregory is embellished with a toe cap which has brogue detail. Available in Burgundy Burnish, Coffee Burnish and Beechnut Burnish these boots are sure to make a statement.
Unique to our web exclusive ConsTruct range, this Gregory won't be available from anywhere else. These new styles are built with the outdoors in mind, equally perfect for tramping the British countryside, trekking the forests of America or walking the streets of Tokyo.
The Gregory uses our famous Goodyear Welt construction, which is the most durable way to build a boot. A natural Barbour Welt is used to stitch the midsole, the boot upper, the insole, and the outsole together, making this boot durable and moisture resistant. All Heavy-duty boots need to be built in this way.
We have used calf leather for this edition. Calf leather is finer grained, and lighter in weight than the hide of older cattle. This means that it is also more supple. It is also very durable in comparison to its thickness.
We recommend using a neutral polish to help maintain these boots.
The Gregory is handmade on Tricker’s 4497S last. This last was created in 1937 to celebrate the coronation of King George VI. Produced by Springline - Britain’s only remaining last maker and an expert in their field - this last is true to UK size (see our size guide for international conversions). The Gregory is made to a Tricker's Width Fit 5, suitable for standard width feet. In the UK this standard width is known as an F fitting; in the USA it is known as a D fitting; in other parts of the world, it is known as an M (medium) or R (regular) fitting. As all Tricker's boots are designed to be worn with thick socks, people with slightly wider feet can usually wear our Fit 5 boots with thinner socks.
Built to Last
As with all Tricker’s shoes and boots, each pair of Gregory boots are handmade within our Northampton factory in England by Tricker’s craftsmen and craftswomen using traditional methods, and to the same exacting standards that first established our reputation centuries ago.
There are over 260 processes used to make each pair by hand from start to finish. Every material used in the construction of these boots can be traced back to its source. Tricker’s uncompromising standards of craftsmanship, honest materials, environmentalism and sustainability are values that have been preserved and developed through five generations of the Tricker’s family-owned business.
With care and repair, these Gregory boots can last you a lifetime. We often find ourselves repairing, resoling or reheeling shoes that are more than 50 years old and we offer this service by post to anywhere in the world.
