I am a 10d Barrie and I have multiple Nordstroms size Large and haven't had an issue with stretching. They are actually the exact same tree that Alden sent me when I recrafted a pair, sans the Alden logo of course.
Thank you, when I see the cap toe boots I wish I had gone after those. I wonder if I had them both which would be worn more.Great looking boots. Every time I see the 721ltd I kick myself for not picking up a pair.Thank you.
