Thanks guys. I once spent 4 months trying to sell this boot; glad I didn't. Would have felt the same remorse when I sold my #8 captoe boot from leathersoul.

My Taste in boot, styles, colors changes from season to season. Typically take a year before I know for sure whether a boot (was) is a keeper. I would place any rare shell boot in the keeper category

Dude, I remember when you were thinking about attempting to stake the stitching out of the toe... Glad you didn't go through with that one

Another pic of a size 11.5 jcrew boot; this one from last week. I am tts 12 and Barrie (in d width) is slightly loose with a dress sock. Fine with an athletic sock. Size 11.5 1k mile boot has a similar voluminous quality to it

ohhh lawwdy

. I cringe thinking about it. Other members may recall that I also sprayed a white suede chukka blue and when that didn't work out I rubbed it down with blue polish. I may have also removed the lining from a Trickers captoe...

Tremendous, Namor.  I still kick myself regularly for not pulling the trigger on these when I had my 3 month opportunity!!  Continue to wear often and in great health my friend...

chukka transformation was interesting to say the least :)

Thank you sir. I can't say I blame you. The look definitely grew on me.

excuse the poor picture quality, have to use my iphone and the lens is smudged. coincidentally, this is their first wear on concrete. my #8 indys seem to get the nod most of the time it seems




Yeah baby, that's the way to do it. Love those boots.
post #61226 of 122416

would anyone care to offer their experience of how C width Barrie's compare to the D and E widths of the half size down?

post #61227 of 122416
9c ptb fit great. 8.5e naval boot was too wide in the heel, would never have worked. I've come to accept that 9c is the only size that will work, so I don't try to compromise on fit.

NAMOR, last week, this week, it's always good to see a pic of your J Crew pct's.
