2. Color 8 shell cordovan medallion straight tip boot, Aberdeen last, 9 matched agatine eyelets, double oak outsole, regular welt around shoe, brown antique sole edge.

 

Is this basically the "Alt Wein" design??  Tempting for sure...


Yes, it is. I am on this order.

Try looking at Unionmade.

Nice!  That's a really nice makeup, but I probably can't justify another color 8 captoe boot since I already own the J.Crew PCT's, plus i'm on the B+M color 8 wingtip boot pre-order as well.  I'm sure I'll be jealous once I see photos though ;)

Also, JGiilbert recently cleared them out and may have an odd size left. http://jgilbertfootwear.tumblr.com/post/124346500053/alden-d4503-hunter-green-long-wing-suede-barrie

This will be my third color 8 boot. I do already have the #8 J.Crew PCT and the #8 Alden DC wingtip boot. No such thing as too many color 8 boots/shoes!

Now that I think about it, aren't you a 10EEE, @peppercorn78

Haha, I agree with that.  I forgot to include the Leffot 8 Tankers I will be getting too :hide:

The tanker/NST styles are the only ones, along with the Indy, that don't really interest me. Guess I'm lucky, there. Oh, and loafers. No thanks.

Funny you mention that because my first Alden was the Indy 405, and NST's have grown on me where I own 2 currently on Aberdeen last, so this will be my first Barrie last NST/Tanker, which is much more casual looking.  I honestly might sell either the B+M wingtip or Leffot tanker though, so we'll see.

 

I guess that's the beauty of all of these models/makeups... there's something for everyone :cheers:

Need a little advice on sizing.  I wear a 9D in my Trubalance Indys.  I recently purchased a PTB on the Barrie last and I went with a 9D as I hear those two lasts should be sized the same-ish.  At first the felt fine but after a few days of wear on my new PTBs I feel that they are a little to small.  My pinky toe is sore as it feels cramp.  I was hoping this would go away (maybe a little stretch?), but after two wears it has not, the shoes are unlined as well.  Either way, they are not very comfortable on my toes.  So my question, do you think my next Barrie attempt should be a 9E or a 9.5D?  I think I am going to have to sell my 9Ds and try again with either of the two mentioned, sucks to take a loss but I have nowhere near me I can try them on first.
