I'm about to do this with the brown CXL longwings from Leffot. I like that they are relatively light due to the double waterlock sole - makes it a great option for spring/summer/fall

I've struggled with CXL high boot offerings, but the chukkas and longwings suit me very well

A good day for #8 plain toe boot on the plaza. Waiting for the train...

So i'm taking the plunge on the straight tip blucher in #8...

i wear 11d in barrie shoes, and am thinking that i should just get 11e in the aberdeen. the barrie has always felt a hair too big but 10.5d is too small for sure.


thoughts on this logic?

Have you ever tried barrie in 11 C? I know that size is not common to find.

I hope to soon purchase the 403 model in Brown Chromexcel (Indy boot); however, after doing some research I have had some lingering concerns with sizing. Where I currently reside, there is no retailer that readily stocks the boots, hence, I will not be able to try them on. For comparison, I wear an 8.5 - 9 in most RW boots and an 8.5 in Clarks DBs; though I am unaware of my width as I have never made a shoe purchase that demarcated such.

In a word, how does the standard D width fit the average person's feet? Rather large? Rather small? (I understand how relative this is, but I would like a consensus.)

Still my favorite boot...Alden Indy Color 8 Cordo:

Right on. Wore mine out for the first time today, suede is comfy and always love double waterloc. This is a good makeup.

i have not. im ok with 11d in barrie, more just asking if 11e in aberdeen seems like a good call.

i have the whiskey bals from alden ny in 11d and can wear them fine, though they are a little snug, but not uncomfortable.

Just a FYI for those that wear a 10d on the barrie. There is a new cigar shell cordovan plain toe boot (frans boone model) with BIN for $695 plus $21 shipping on ebay right now. If I didnt have that exact boot I would be all over it. Pricey yes, but rare model and with price hikes this is actually less than retail for cigar indy boots. Someone hop on this

Great deal on a beautiful boot!

First, I must say this thread is really helpful. I am trying to decide on sizing for the NST Tanker Boot on the Barrie last. In the LWB, 10.5E fits me the best, I have read that the Tanker boot actually runs more narrow than the LWB or PTB. Has any one eperienced this first hand?
post #44865 of 122416
^ the stitching on the tanker creates a more narrow toe box. the difference is noticeable but not enough to go up in width.

i should note that ive only experience this with tanker style boot. I have the hand stitched shell indy and the sizing is identical to the calf, machine style stitched version
