Thanks guys. How much more narrow is the Barrie from the Trubalance? I could easily have gone with a 8D instead of a 8E in the trubalance. Will that also be the case with the Barrie or is it a good bit more narrow? The modified last in 8E fits me perfectly.

^ go 8D in barrie

sizing question: what is the math behind sizing differences and widths? For example, what is the inch measurement differences in both width and length between 8D, 8.5C, 9C and 9B? I'm specifically talking barrie last. thanks, guys.

Your boots are on the Modified last. You can tell by the sole and mock toe stitching. They were a special makeup for Moulded Shoe in NYC. See my signature.

Also, they are both Modified last (left and right).

Thanks for the response. I guess I'm confused on how they can both be on the modified last yet look and fit so differently? The shoe on the top fits very narrow and looks like the pictures of the modified last while the bottom shoe (as pictured) looks and fits much more wide.

The more narrow waisted shoe is the Modified last. The other shoe is Truebalance. Why did you buy a pair of shoes made on different lasts? That seems like a terrible way to save $100.

Indeed. They were sold as seconds (with a savings of $200) and listed as Barrie last shoes. I only discovered that was not the case after I received them.

I've had a 100% rate of dissatisfaction with shoemart seconds. Seems like they're keeping up the good work!

Not to laugh at you, cause I'm sure its a pain in the ass and a disappointment, but i know you'll get your $$ back... but this is HILARIOUS! I guess you could say that the Barrie is a combination of the Modified last and the Truebalance?

Love REguy's chart in the background.

Wow, that is certainly a first. Alden seconds are quirky but I've never come across a pair f shoe on different lasts. I would just note that Just put that the boots are mismatched and you should get a full refund. Odd.

Love it!

How often are the irregular emails supposed to go out, monthly? I only received the email list the first time I signed up.

By the way, mismatching shoe lasts definitely do not work. The Modified has such a different feel than other lasts...

Varies, so far this year has been every few months, not monthly.
