On the feet. I went with Barrie sizing (half size down from normal U.S.), and the fit is perfect.

Got mine- fit perfect out of the box. Thanks everyone for the sizing advice! Very happy with these boots. I'll post pics later.

Post lady delivered mine around noon but had to be sociable with guests even though I was dying to open the box.  Glad I went with my Barrie size.  It wouldn't have worked to try sizing down another half.  Very happy with these so far.  But they are incredibly heavy.  Heaviest boots I own so far at 1lb 15oz; almost 2 lbs a boot!

These boots look great. What last is this (please bear with me; I don't want to read the whole thread)? And is the consensus that one should go with Barrie size for this last (for future reference)?

I have more patience than ryden.  :happy:  This MTO was on the 2045.  I went with my Barrie size but some have actually gone 1/2 down from Barrie.  1/2 down from Barrie would have been too tight/snug for me.

Been wearing them most of the day and starting to break in nicely. I went with Barrie size but 1/2 size down would have worked as we'll (winters here don't really call for very thick socks). Might look to replace the laces with some that are a few inches longer but otherwise I'm a very happy camper.

Might need to jump on the derby buy next wink.gif.

I'm definitely breaking the "rules" on these as it's the 2nd day in a row I'm wearing them. As Fok said, they're work boots so I don't plan on taking care of them as I do all my other boots.  I'm still undecided on whether to use trees in them or nor.  Might do so only occasionally.  And since they're waxed flesh, I will probably just use light brushing on them, as I don't want to create any false aging on them by brushing the wax off the flesh.

 

Curious how others will be treating these boots...

@BootSpell, you pleased with the fit and feel of the last?

How to maintain? I was thinking the occasional application of Renovateur, but maybe that's overkill?

I am very pleased with the fit.  I have narrow heels so most boots' heels are a bit wide for me.  That's why I stay away from the Alden Trubalance last.  For some reason, the Barrie doesn't seem too bad although it's supposed to have a wide heel as well.  The 2045 last is quite agreeable for my feet.  The leather is very thick and quite stiff but the boots are by no means uncomfortable out of the box.  I just think they'll take 10-15 wears to get softer and mold to the shape of your feet.

 

My 2030 Service Boots in Colour 8 CXL are arriving tomorrow so I'm interested to see how the same size in the 2030 feels.

 

I think you are really going to love these boots.  They feel really good walking in them.  Hard to describe but it almost feels like I'm "rolling" with each step.  Very nice.

I don't think I personally want to treat these waxed flesh boots with anything.  Reno or any other kind of cream is going to "undo" any distressing that occurs to the boots.  It's almost like reapplying the wax to the flesh/suede side of the leather, making it smooth and kind of like waxed again.  But maybe that's your intention?
