Great shoes. Plaza last? Captoe boots are becoming my favorite style.

Someone needs to make these in ravello or whiskey.

New to this forum. I just purchased a pair of cigar LHS in 11D VAN Last. Will the Barrie 11D work for me on my next purchase? The VAN 11D fits me perfectly and from what I've read sounds like I should he Ok with the same size Barrie.

Wow. What a great find that would be. Just checked and 10.5 and 13 are all that's left. Thanks for the post. One of my favorite stores, but did not know they carried

Has anyone used both Saphir Reno and Venetian Shoe Cream? I'm a big Saphir fan but there are a lot of Venetian proponents as well. My tub of Saphir is almost done, thinking about trying out Venetian...

anyone want to split a 32oz with me? if interested PM me

My feet are wider, so I wear
9.5E Barrie
10D Barrie, Trubalance, and Tremont
10E Grant and Aberdeen
I don't have any Plaza or Leydon
EDIT - I believe Namor can fit into a C width Barrie but wears D width Grant, so he isn't wearing the same size in both lasts (correct me if I am wrong)

exactly. If you have a narrower foot, or take narrow widths in Alden, good chance the youll take the same size in Grant as Barrie (assuming you take a D width in Barrie). Grant is a little long. Staying TTS is too big.

Unless my tired eyes are missing where it says Grant last, this looks like the class 975 model #8 longwing which is on the Barrie.

uncle, in your experiences, have you found the Plaza last to crease more? IMO, the Plaza last, along with the Barrie last crease the most in the vamp area. Anyone else relate to this?

I read somewhere that they were made on the Grant last. If they are in fact on the Barrie last, I feel less bad for missing out on this deal

It probably depends on how the last fits your feet. All other things equal, the better the fit, the less creasing one will experience. The Grant last fits me like a glove and I have experienced less creasing with that last than the Barrie and Trubalance which fit me well but there is more room inside the shoe.

This is actually very well said. People always come on here and ask about the Grant last and there really is no clear cut answer. Some say TTS while others say same size as Barrie. After everything I have read and from personal experience my take would be if you have a narrow to average foot you would want to consider same size as the Barrie. If you have slightly wide foot (like me), you may want to go TTS. I tried same size as Barrie, and the tapered toe box of the Grant didn't offer me enough room in the toe box. Going up 1/2 size helped out quite a bit.

Of course everyone's feet are different and there will be variations, but this is a pretty good generalization, IMO.
