Mink brown suede captoe boots on Barrie today, got these as seconds from TSM. Not sure what the defect is, which I'm not complaining about.



On a related note, I need to change size for Barrie lasted boots; need 1/2 size up due to snugness. I have several pairs of barely worn (at most 3 times) barrie boots in 6E that I need to let go, wanted to see if there are any interested parties here before they go up on market place/ebay. Please shoot me a PM if interested.

  • Ravello wingtip boot, double leather sole. From TheShoeMart
  • Color 8 wingtip boot, commando sole. From Alden of Carmel
  • Chocolate suede NST boot, commando sole. From LeatherSole
  • Snuff suede NST boot, WaterLok sole. From Unipair
  • Color 8 perf captoe boot (Naval boot), double leather sole. From Leffot
  • Brown cxl captoe boot, commando sole. From Alden NY

Anyone ever seen that before on an Alden boot?

Yes, Zbix is right. It has 7 eyelets and it's a tad shorter than the 9 eyelets boot (I only realise that after you guys mentioned about it). Here are some side by side photo of it with the Alden x Jcrew Perf CT boot

A shame that you have to give up those sweet boots, Zenny.

Thanks guys, it was a pretty painful decision to make. Figure I won't wear them as much due to tightness and they probably deserve an owner that will put them to work.

Just hoping I can re-acquire the same make ups in the future, though I'm not holding my breath.

So you wear 6.5 E in Barrie boots and 6 E in Barrie shoes?

Your experience seems to be common, though others here stick with the same size.

Agree. My 975s are very comfy with room. The JCrew PCT boot is like a perfect snug fit. Going forward I'm going to take a 9.5D Barrie shoe and 10D Boot.

Correct, Alden hell and non-shell barrie shoes in 6E is the best fit for me from any maker. However in boot form the left side is slightly snug, probably due to a high arch and slightly wider left foot.

In any other last, I'm TTS (6.5E) in both shoe and boot form, except in trubalance where I'm a 6E throughout. It's an annoying problem that I should have caught on to earlier. I could probably just keep wearing these boots, but I figure a $700 boot should fit perfectly =).

Another subtle distinction is the rear seam is covered. Alden's standard wingtip boot has the exposed vertical seam running the length of the back.
