@Webbo I take an 11 E on the plaza and went to try on Barrie lasted shoes this weekend, a half size down 10.5 D was too tight across the width. 11 D was pretty much spot on width wise with a little bit of heel slippage that went away when the laces are tightened. I wish i could've tried on a 10.5 E as I suspect that might be perfect.
PSA: I have a pair of Cigar cap toe boots from Alden DC in 11 D and they are just a smidge tight. Is the consensus that they wont stretch out to fit as I wear them? PM me if you'd like them and just pay for my shipping cost to you or they will be going back to Alden DC by the end of week. Thanks all.
