The Indy boots fit wonderfully.  I've heard the trubalance and barrie lasts are analagous, but I find the barrie last is noticably tighter along the instep.  My first thought was a 10.5E, but I've never seen someone who is Trubalance 10.5D and Barrie 10.5 E. Any recommendations? The edge of the toebox makes me think at 11D would be way too much room in the toe.  Is a 10.5E going to be hugely wider than a 10.5D?  Would a 10E be too short?  Thanks!

That was a lot of data, so I may have zoned out during part of it. But, let me try and help. Some people have found the Barrie boots are a little tight on the instep for their comparable size in the Trubalance last. Those people size a half size up (and some use a small insert if there is a little room). I would probably not recommend messing with the width.

However, these things are not cheap, so I am hesitant to recommend someone buy something that they cannot return if they do not fit. So, perhaps get properly fit first. There will always be more sales, auctions, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with Aldens from Barneys?  I saw they offer a Penny Loafer in Brown Shell Cordovan and was wondering if that's a special make or if it's really just #8?  and if its the Van last?

My LHSs are from Barney's NYC, purchased about 3 years ago. They are 986s on the Van last:

HaHa. I wish. No, had a bunch of meetings and briefs out here this week. I try and swing by the store once per trip, but don't always make it.

I did pick ip the navy Barrie on crepe Barrie last. Looks like it may be a good all season shoe for me. 3 rd blue shoe this year (blue suede j and m and navy buttero tennis shoe) so this navy alden should have a spot. Almost went for the sand suede on crepe on 379 x but wasn't sure how the 379 last is. I will send pics when they come in. Greats pictures this week. And I have some green grass now. I can start showing some east coast grass slash dirt off smile.gif

The navy crepe soled in 8.5D were the toughest ones for me to say no to. I almost dialed the number to pick them up yesterday.

I was surprised they were the still there. If I decide to send back I will let you know. Haven't you put yourself on purchase freeze? If so I could hold them until it ends. smile.gif.

Also, for anyone interested, I just listed some brand new J. Gilbert snuff suede wing tip boots in a 7.5d for sale. I love the boots, but I've made way too many unexpected shell purchases recently...
