Or it may feel a little tighter but not enough to go down.  

 

But nothing beats going to try them on your own feet.   

 

This is just to mess up the next person who does a search for how barrie sizes compared to true-to-size lasts.

I don't necessarily agree Aldenwear, but that's the beauty of a forum. I do however, appreciate the response and see your point.

I agree that this is just an internet forum, and it's not the end of the world if someone asks a repeat question.  You are forgiven.

 

I find the quote above kind of funny though.  It is as if you went out to dinner with some friends, and when the check comes you say "can you guys get this, I just paid my real estate tax this week and don't feel like spending any more money."

 

 

On a separate note, the sun is out today and I just took some better shots of the shoes in my signature after the TLC treatment.

If you're at The Game, I hope you're warmer than the last one I attended. I've never been so cold in my life!

Blue Collar, I wear the same size in the Grant and Barrie. The Barrie is a somewhat sloppier fit, but I don't notice an appreciable difference in length. I actually find the Grant to fit similarly to Carmina's Rain last with a little more volume. I'm not sure you need to size up in width if you've got just a little breathing room in the Barrie. I think it also depends on how tight you like to wear your shoes.

Bakes what are the insoles you are using?

I have large feet and was wondering where I could find some size 13D shell cordovan boots in #4 ,or Ravello in the wing tip style? I would also take whiskey if I had to, but I really want #4!

See Ya,
Steve

Those are/were my Dad's shoes, so whatever insoles he put in them.  I am sure that they are nothing special  He probably bought them at CVS.  He has a bad back.  I just checked for you and the insoles don't have a brand anywhere on them.  If you buy the shoes, I'll sweeten the deal by throwing the insoles in for free!

Steve,

 

I am very sympathetic with the fact that you are busy.  If you don't mind, I'd like to spend the rest of the afternoon trying to locate the boots that you are seeking.

Thanks RE!

I'm stuffed into a Barrie 11.5D. It's the width that i'm worried about most. I'm thinking a grant 11.5E is the way to go for me.

I like to wear thin socks and for my shoes to be a tight fit.

I'm an 11E barrie and an 11E grant is too small for me
