Supposed to get my Color 8 full straps today. Not sure. The FedEx site is showing me some funny stuff.
I am really curious to see how they look. I have wanted a pair of full straps for a while. Though I was mainly hoping for Cigar, but it's hard to beat Seconds deals.

Please someone 8.5D Barrie buy these, so I don't have to.post #69321 of 12241612/21/13 at 2:07pm
Does anyone know why my cxl would be "buckling" in the arch area? I have 2 other pairs of Indys (suede and 401 black calf) in the same exact size, and don't have this issue with those boots.
Is it size related, poor cutting/stitching in the factory, a bad piece of cxl, or maybe just the nature of cxl?
I wore them out all day, and this started to develop after a few hours, and wondering if I should send back to Unionmade?
Thanks!post #69322 of 12241612/21/13 at 2:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by mogili222
Does the Grant last run large? I am a size 10D on a brannock and the 9.5D fits me on the Barrie last. Do I get a 10D or a 9.5D on the Grant last?
Most would get 10 and that is where I would start.. A seeming minority get their barrie size in grant - grant is Iin the middle of the alden last spectrum but towards the generous side oft middle (and barrie is the widest alden last except for trubalance and modfied.).
Thanks..post #69323 of 12241612/21/13 at 3:32pmpost #69324 of 12241612/21/13 at 3:55pmpost #69325 of 12241612/21/13 at 5:46pmQuote:Originally Posted by mdubs

I want to get into boots, but the last time I tried some the shaft was really constricting on my ankles. Yours look pretty tight kinda like the way I wore mine. Maybe I'm just not a boot guy? Is there some kinda secret to them not being so tight on the ankles?
