High instep true to size for Alden Barrie last?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The normal advice for Alden's barrie last (and clark's desert boots) is to size down half a size, but my feet have high instep, so I wear my regular size on clarks. Would the same logic apply for the barrie last?

For reference, a 9E in shell perforated cap toe oxford fits comfortably and a 8D in shell blucher fits as well, but tighter (both are on the Alden Snap last). I can also wear RL (crocket jones) McCallum cordovan chukka boots in 9D, although there is some room in the shoe on all sides.

You know there's a dedicated Alden thread full of people more than happy to make wild ass guesses as to what size shoe you should get.

Ahh I apologize. For some reason I didn't think of that. A mod is welcome to close this thread I guess and I can repost it in that thread.
