Wonder if heel and tongue pads could make it work? :nest:

 

:D 

There you go, RTP. Queue Bakes shaking his head at us for even suggesting it. in 5...4...3...

You managed to get the code to work after all?

Yes I did.  Believe it or not I had never tried on a Barrie.  I figured it was a good way for me to get my sizing down.  Cheap returns for such a heavy package and all.

 

If I put them on and my life changed I was going to keep them at such a good price...alas, my life is pretty much the same other than the fact I'm now confident in my Barrie sizing.

Color #4 BIN for $640 shipped. Tempted but it's gonna be a little too big for me. If it's here when I wake up no promises

I'm sorry, but these are absolutely hideous.  And the Color 4 has a pumpkin-ish tone, which when coupled with the black makes it appropriate only for trick-o-treating.

They're actually pretty close to my size -- if they were a 10.5E they'd be perfect. Saddles really aren't my thing, though (although the monochromatic models are tempting).

Yeah gonna pass, don't like saddles and it's too big. And honestly they are a bit trick o treating

Color 4 though

Outside of stuff that is never going to be made only have DC grant cigar captoes, just going to wait for those

For those that have successfully ordered from LeatherSoul, is there an art to them outside of periodically hitting refresh on the New Release tab? I know that Alden DC / SF and The Shoe Mart require a periodic phone call. Does the same apply to LeatherSoul? I love their make-ups, but haven't successfully landed a pair yet.

Also, I have noticed that they have not been posting as much cordovan lately, and am curious whether they, like some shops, are not posting their more limited cordovan releases on their website.

I find it tough to snag anything from Leather Soul. Usually their stuff is sold out before it hits the site. If there is something in particular you want, email them and find out if they will be doing another run in the future. Usually they say "we don't know exactly when, but eventually" or something along those lines. If you really want them, hand over $100 deposit and reserve your size. If you are waiting to see something you like to be announced on the site it is already too late. Good luck!

Takuya from LS said they have no cordovan models on the horizon. Edit: I should say no models that I could get in on. Full orders may be a different story.
