And I mean pounded.
Here is the result
Suburban dad street cred just skyrocketed.
I'd search this thread for "Indy" and "TruBalance" to see what others are doing, and then order from Nordstrom, since they have such a generous return policy.
I'm a 12. 12D Indys, 12D TBs. To compare them, the Indys have an unstructured toe and are probably slightly longer as well so they "feel" bigger, but I wouldn't opt for a smaller one (as in an 11.5E). I have to wear thinner socks with my TBs because of the toe - probably means I could have gone with a bigger size (12E or maybe a 13 like my Beckmans). I would absolutely email OSB or Independence and ask their opinion - tell them how you fit in other boots/shoes (I gave Tim my measurements in Strands, Indys, and their Trail Oxfords).
Like what was previously mentioned, definitely search in this thread a bit and you'll find other people's thoughts. I know it's come up before butI also know the search function isn't always helpful so at least you have one opinion. Definitely check out the Nordstrom suggestion.
I am a 7.5D in the Barrie and Trubalance lasts. I have two Trench boots, one in 8D and one in 7.5D. I find the 8D to be more comfortable. I can wear the 7.5D but with thinner socks and I do feel my toes pretty close to the tip. Most suggestions are to go TTS with the Trenches. So size up 1/2 from your Trubalance size.
