I'd say no, but I'm sometimes in the majority here. I'd say it will fit you the same at the widest part of your foot as a D width in any other boot. However, the toe area doesn't taper as fast as some other lasts, and doesn't chisel or go to a point as quickly as some other lasts. I find that I wear a 10.5E in most shoes, no matter the last.

NST Tanker Anique Welt Color 8 on Truebalance. Looks like an Indy to me with split toe. This boot doesn't know what it wants to be... But being my first Truebalance .. I like them very much and the look of the boot appeals to me.

Looks like you should go on travel more often. Nice looking boots. Are those the Brick+Mortar Wingtips?

Your Boots are looking very good. They are essentially an Indy Boot with the toe stitch.

First one with flash. All my shells finally received the biannual Reno application. No wax.

Here I am on the fence on whether to buy a black shell PTB. I have black shell perf cap toe and LWB and a #8 PTB. Love them all, but for some reason I am questioning whether I will enjoy a black PTB. For some reason I do not expect the LWB or the perf cap toe to need to develop patina in the long run, but the PTB will seem to need it. I would grab any other color shell over the black, but at EEE I think the only chance of that is slim at the very best and likely none. Having never seen a black shell PTB in the wild and seeing scant mention of them on the forum, dampers down the lust level. They don't seem to get much love on the forum. At full retail I would likely skip it, but I did find a second and would pay less than $500. So, what say you about a black shell PTB? Get it or skip it?

I have several black shells and wear the hell out of them. Much overlooked shell colour..

Unlined color 8 shell cordovan penny loafers on Van last modified at Anatomica.

Very happy with these.
