Quick poll. Which do you think is more versatile #8 PTB or #8 LWB?
Don't worry about what other shoes are in rotation other than it will mostly be worn business casual or with jeans.
Looks 2-2 so far.
Just to be transparent, I currently own the #8 PTB but plan to give to my son when he goes to college this Fall. They are a little big as I bought them before I figured out my size. Right now I'm leaning towards replacing with the #8 LWB but haven't decided yet...
My barrie tanker boot (basically an NST) fits narrower than barrie shoes in the same size. I wear the same size in both but others do size up. If going up a width is possible in the model you want, you may prefer that.
