^^^ +100 Good question; I think I can guess based on different pieces of information gathered on this thread, but I would like to hear first hand experience. Can I assume my hampton size would be the same as my grant size? Has anyone found their own case to be different? Thanks for asking this question...post #70218 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:19ampost #70219 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:23am^^ Even though my foot is a tweener at about an 8.25...I still take Grant at my TTS 8.5 and it works well for me.
I don't yet have any experience with the Hampton. Which I guess means that I added nothing to this discussion...post #70220 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:25amQuote:Originally Posted by ReppTiePrepster

I only have experience with the Hampton, unfortunately, and it's not one I can really say for sure at that. Your question is one I've thought about because a pair of black shell Grant boots would be a really nice addition for me.
I'd say my Brannock size is about a 9D (maybe 8.75D?), 8.5 Trubalance Indys feet generously, while 8.5D Barrie is a tough break-in for me although a decent fit (jury's still out on the heel).
My Hampton balmorals fit perfectly everywhere except the heel counter, which frustrates the ever living crap out of me, but...all other brands I seem to be spot on 9D, especially in boots. I've of the opinion that boots are a little more forgiving for heel fit. I could see a Hampton boot being perfect in my Brannock size, since balmorals are finnicky anyway and in a boot I'd find a little room to be acceptable.
Judging by the chart of their lasts, it looks like the Grant has similar proportions to the Barrie, but less volume. I'd size up from Barrie and go my Brannock/Hampton size.post #70221 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:36ampost #70222 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:38ampost #70223 of 1224161/3/14 at 7:52amQuote:Quote:

That's good news in Baltimore...that should curb the murder total to start the 2014.
235 murders in 2013 is a lot
Baltimore is a sweet town and home to the company I work for but I'm not sure what's up with all the killing.post #70229 of 1224161/3/14 at 8:41amQuote:

You guys make me laugh with this talk of "cold weather." The last two weeks, its been -40F everyday here (with the next two week forecast looking the same), with Dec.30th reaching -60F, colder than the surface of Mars for that day.
