Question, if I'm comfortably a 10D in the Barrie last with thin dress socks, and want to get into an Indy boot but plan to wear thicker socks, worth sizing up to a 10.5D? I know the last is a tad bit different, but seems most people stay with their Barrie sizing. Is a half size jump too much just to accommodate thicker socks?
This is a bit difficult to answer and you really need to try the shoes on with the thicker socks to get an idea. It further depends on the exact measurements of your foot. For example, my foot is 10.25 inches and I also wear a 10D. The extra quarter inch provides me sufficient room to wear any kind of sock. However, if my foot were exactly 10.5, the thicker socks may be a bit tight.
Excellent point - I am going up a 1/2 size on three boots I ordered specifically to wear boot socks with- going with a 12.5 - they are trubalance and Barrie - I own a 12.5 Indy so was comfortable in doing so.
I can not wear a boot sock with size 12 barrie or trubalance and be comfortable
