I LOVE the wonderfully cool boot weather we've had this week. Just took these off and find they are still one of my favorite boots. CXL is so comfortable.

 

 

 

I posted these images in response to a discussion on the Viberg thread about inconsistent creasing/rolling between left & right boots made of CXL. Other CXL boots that I've owned over the years have had some significant variation between left & right except these...Ultimate Jumpers x LS. The only CXL in the rotation.

Question for those of you that size up .5 in Barrie for the boot (I'm looking at the J. Crew PCT), but stay D width (I am 9.5D and questioning whether I can take a 10D). Do you find your regular Barrie size (in this case my 9.5D) tight, loose, etc?

 

It's amazing how much variation there is in this sizing question on the Jcrew captoe. I'm a tweener on Barrie but I typically go 8.5 and wear with thin socks. I generally size up for boots because I wear thicker socks. The Jcrew captoe is my only boot that I need to size up simply to wear a thin sock. Others report no difference but put me in the camp of those who find this model a little snugger than other barrie boots. Strange at how the responses vary so much on this .

Boots are nice Mike (really nice) but I'm lovin the pants as well. I also like the discreet display of ankle. Don't see that very often with boots.  Nicely played.

Do most people share this difficulty? And is there a recommended recourse--or is there just a required break in period? As I consider selling the 11D, I'm wondering if it's worth trying 11E or if the BB unlined might be more comfortable? Or is it just that LHS are not for everyone?

Interested in thoughts/experiences...and PM me if you've nailed down your fit on 11D and are looking for a below market pickup.

That was my exact experience. I went with Barrie sizing on the Van lasted 986 LHS. The strap was super tight and the heel was loose. I wore them sparingly for several months and while they've become somewhat more comfortable, I still don't enjoy wearing them as it becomes painful after an hour or so. Planning to sell them but haven't gotten around to it yet. I've concluded that the Van last just won't work for me.

Amazing shade of Ravello, bud. Much nicer than my short-lived Brownvello of 2014. They look great!
