theoretically it shouldn't, but i had a pair of the leffot tankers that were quite narrow compared to gunboat lwb.
there are tons of quirks with aldens, and I have noticed repeatedly that if the shoe does not have the storm welt and its on the barrie, the makers tend to pull the upper tighter around the last resulting in a snugger fit. some may disagree, but I've seen it happen over and over.
just my 2c.
