Does anyone have experience having boots run larger than others on the same last? I tried on a pair of LWB on the Barrie last and tried on the same size and the same last on a boot and found it bigger. It makes picking my first Alden that much more confusing.

All my barries fit the same, have a LWB, PTB and a Captoe Boot.

I find my barrie lasted cap toe boots fit snugger in the same size as my LWB. I ended up going up half a size in the boot. they were the Jcrew cap toe boots for reference.

Which boot? A lot of people report that captoe boots in barrie run smaller than Barrie longwing bluchers

Different Alden lasts can fit differently in various shoes - just find a particular model that you like and fits you well

I went up a half size to TTS in my Barrie J. Crew cap toe boots. All other Barrie shoes are a half size down.

Interesting I did the same thing, because my LWB are an 8D and my jcrew captoes are 8.5D. At the same time though, an 8.5D in plaza is too small for me in the toebox.

I have multiple buyers interested. I don't buy anything just to flip. I have so many pairs of cordovan Alden's that I am forced to get rid of some of my doubles due to my female cohabitant. I told her that I would list them, as a gesture of good will, but since I have no reason to get rid of them, I'll only list them for an absurd price and if somebody in Japan or something wants to pay it, great. Otherwise, they're staying put.

 

I never thought that I actually get offers, but there seems to be a bidding war where people are offering more. Ooops! Now, I

might actually have to sell them.

 

I am not a flipper or a seller. People who want the shoes should get them from the source and I really wanted them..,,still do. 

 

I thought that I'd explain so as not to offend my fellow Alden people.

 

the scary fact is that $750 Alden's with tax are now pretty close to those absurd prices.

 

gone are the days....

No hard feelings here. I actually like your strategy of putting them up online to appease the significant other but at a slightly inflated price... I may have to try that next time my wife pushes me to clean out my record collection.

Gee whiz, I hope I don't have the same issue. My J Crew cap toe boots are arriving tomorrow. I'm an 11 1/2D measured on the brannock. Size 11D in my PTB's and LWB's works just fine. Because I have what some would call a low profile foot my Bluchers feel a little loose at 8:00am, but by six in the evening my feet are thankful for the extra room.

I buy 8.5D in all Alden Barrie shoes and it's worked out great for me. I think it's rare that it would be that different as long as it's the same last.

Sounds like you may be OK. This question gets asked every so often and there are a handful of us who report going up a half size larger on the Barrie cap toe boots. I have a high volume foot so perhaps that is the issue. I'd guess that 99% are the same size on the same lasts.

So did you go to an E width on the Plaza? I have yet to try on a Plaza last but I am an 8D on the Barrie as well and I tried an 8D Grant and it was way too tight. I think even an 8.5D would not fit me right so I am considering going to an E width on the slimmer lasts
