Yep - I need an E width in grant (I wear 9.5E or 10D in Barrie)

You should consider E widths in narrower lasts - most shoes in lasts like Grant and Aberdeen basically aren't available in barrie. Some captoe cordovan boots (Alden DC's cigar, Leffot's day trippers) are stocked in grant. Same issue with Aberdeen, basically tassels are on that last.

Received 8D and 8.5D from johnnyrich7.  Anybody have 9D?  Thanks!

Seconds list was weak from 10-11 D/E. If anybody wants them PM but I have no electricity or internet at my place so there might be a delay

Agreed. The 10.5D list was a bit disappointing, save a pair of color 8 LWB.

*Not my listing*

I remember someone posting that they just missed out on a chance to buy a pair of LS ravello shortwings in a 10D.

Well someone listed a brand new pair on Ebay.

I can only imagine how many "buy it now" messages that guy is getting.

On a side note, anyone get the 7.5E irregular list? If so, can you PM me? Thanks.

(There's a pair on the TSM seconds list on the Grant last that's my size in Barrie and I'm trying to decide whether to pull the trigger. With the risk being $18 the shipping and return fees, I should probably just do it ...)

I can't wear the same size.

Barrie - 9D
Grant - 9.5D

When I first tried a Grant lasted shoe on in 9D, it was very tight. The 9.5D ended up working well. All in all the Grant is a nice last, IMO.
post #32639 of 122416
does the shoe mart even update those seconds emails? i feel like ive received the same emails 3 times in a row
post #32640 of 122416

would love to see a 11.5 list from TSM if someone has it...

 

thanks in advance
