I was relieved when I couldn't get on the list for these.  Saving money I thought.  Now that I'm trying to throw more cordovan into my business casual work wardrobe, I'm disappointed I didn't get these.  They're like a more subtle AE Strand.

Thanks

go with 9d. 8.5d will be too tight.

I size down a half size in the tremont last. If your Barrie shoes are very snug I would go TTS. If not, I would consider sizing down.

I will say that the Tremont is a tweener much like the Grant last. You will find a split of people here who size down versus go true to size. Suggest that you take a shot, but agree with the advice that if Barrie is snug in 9D, then stick with it, otherwise you will probably want to try sizing down. But it depends on the specific dimensions of your foot. Hope that this helps, but just wanted to bound sizing advice here! :-)

They wouldn't happen to these, would they?

What are the practical differences in the Barrie and Modified last? The Barrie works great for me and I am looking at some shoes on the modified last. I would assume I order my Barrie last size for the modified.

Actually, what I saw looked a lot more casual/rustic - natural edges and welt, etc.

Hi Everyone,

I was hoping to get some information on care for the leather on my Indy 405's. I've worn them for about 5 months (nearly daily wear.) The leather has several spots on it, IDK if they are stains from water or something else. They don't bother me a ton but I'm curious if I can restore the leather to a more even look. I polished them yesterday using tan venetian cream and brushed them for a while and while it made the splotches less visible they are still there. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if there are other ways to care for them and what they might look like over time.

Thanks.
