I mean it's little risk as barneys is a big store and you shouldn't have issues

But still some risk like what if package lost / damaged and you get a stingy SA at barneys

Also depends on your available credit limit on you cc

In general our true industrial boots do feel larger than our casual offerings because of the lasts and structured (often steel) toe boxes. It's really just a matter of semantics. What's the difference between UK or a large fitting US last? Nobody calls Red Wing or Alden UK, but for most customers our boots fit the same. The real problem with this comparison is when people think they have to go another size down from an American boot brand because we're supposedly "UK". If i did that i wouldn't even be able to get my foot into the shoe.

I always assumed the lasts were made in-house. Who's making the lasts?

Are the boots that are posted up on available to be shipped now if purchased? Or is there still a, like, 5 year wait time?

I just sent my tracings off to Morgan. I am really curious what he will recommend compared to what I am thinking

Re: 2030 last,

I found it to be pretty shallow in the toe box as has been described here. The breaking in process was a bit uncomfortable, I'm used to getting heel blisters on new footwear I walk too much in but a blister on top of the big toe was new to me. Now that they're broken in the toe box is extremely supple and the boot now conforms to everything from the ball of my foot to the tip of my toes. I'm not used to the leather of a toe box resting on top of my toes, but now it is extremely comfortable. It's so damn comfortable I want to call it a slipper boot.

I think they might be selling them at super denim in the UK? I'm also selling that but with a toecap.

Ended up picking these up blindly for under $300. I absolutely love everything about them but they were 8.5d and I'm normally a 9d in red wings.

Lets hope I didn't blow it.

Good show. I was eyeing those for weeks. Other than the marks on the counters they looked brand new
