I would wait for a 10. In addition to missing out on the perfect fit, I've found that insoles are a hassle when you're trying to get a shoe tree in and out.

The insoles should come out before trees are inserted.

I think I would be super excited about this if essentially all of their shoes weren't crepe soled.

Thank your sir. These are on the trusty Trubalance last. Super comfy all day long for me and my flat feet and orthotics.

Enjoy yours as well Seven...

And...

Just to be clear, my comments were not meant to be critical of NSTs on the Barrie. My point was simply that the NST style looks quite different when the Barrie and Aberdeen are compared. Some prefer the one. Others will prefer the other.

Thank you for the JCREW code. I had been contemplating the last pair of 10.5 color 8 LWB with crepe sole for the last few days and your promo code allowed me to pull the trigger.

note that those crepe soled lwb do not have the antiqued sole, but rather dark. 

 

i bought a pair with the intention of resoling them to look like the offering from fransboone (at a deeper discount, as at the time, jcrew discount of 30 or 40% iirc)

nephew,
thank you
the ravello is on the aberdeen last and the whiskey is on the barrie last

I agree

Any sizing insight as to how cordovan cap toe on Hampton last will fit if I'm normally EU 43 in Common Projects and 11 in all other shoes? 10.5D?

nephew,
holding out-what did you order?
the nst are one of the best models made by alden's

Thanks for the heads up on the soles. I know these were 30% off back in Nov of last year for black friday--which is a great deal.

Who knows if they ever do that again.

Alden for Epaulet Taunton Captoe Boot Burnished Calfskin: $545



Barrie Last - Commando Sole - Burnished Tan Calfksin Upper. It looks just a good the second time around!

Great boot, but no "E" widths shuts many of us out. And I am sure they would look super with the trousers I just purchased from you.

Insoles can also cause leather to dig into the top of your toes as well
