I now have a better appreciation of speed hooks.  The TSM is a pain to get on/off.

 odd that with my size foot(13E) that I dont have any issue with all eyelets. I never even have to unlace them from any of the holes and have no issue getting foot in..from AE to Viberg to Alden. Seems many people have a tough time - these damn feet being all different shapes and sizes.

Thanks to the Jcrew code - I picked up a pair of the cordovan cap toes.  After reading about sizing, I decided to go TTS. 

 

As a result they feel a lot more like my indy boots which I size down a half size. 

 

Either way, can't beat the price paid.

Breaking these Alden x Frans Boone Color #8 Parajumper Boots in; carpet first, then after a few days the maiden voyage.

Took nearly 1.5 years but it was worth the wait and then some.

Amazing! This is what I hope the incoming Enzo Bonafe captoe boot in #4 will imitate. I've lusted after these Aldens of yours for a very long time.

I just need to chime in here regarding the sizing on the J Crew PCT boot. The J Crew PCT boot does not fit any different, length wise, than any other Barrie lasted boot I have.  

 

I got burnt when taking the advice in getting these boots in TTS. I've since ordered my correct Barrie size and all is well.

I think this is the one shoe/boot that every person should try both options, as my experience with it is exactly opposite yours. I sold off my barrie sized pair and grabbed TTS and couldn't be happier.

post #116399 of 122416
Had purchased the Jcrew PCT boots recently as well. I don't think there was a significant difference with other similar sized barrie boots. But I definitely find the barrie boots to fit tighter than barrie shoes in the same size. But I would also bet that no 2 boots will fit exactly the same due to human error during production.

Were the boots too short? Since the J Crew only comes in D width, I have a feeling most people getting TTS are trying to fix a width issue by adding length.
