agree, same fit for me. I do have some volume in Barrie lasted shoes.

Have you tried Anatomica or Berteil in Paris? You also have The Next Door in Avignon. It would be good for you to try these lasts on to ensure that you have the right size, as you will have significantly more skin in the game if you have them shipped across the pond.
Here is the general cheat sheet for lasts:
Barrie shoes: Size down a half size
Barrie boots: Either size down a half size or TTS (I wear TTS)
Aberdeen / Plaza: TTS
Grant: Either TTS or a half size up (as they are typically boots, I may recommend going a half size up to your TTS and putting in an insert if you need to eat up room)post #80328 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:15ampost #80329 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:26amQuote:Originally Posted by docalden2013
This is so true. I've decided to anoint my 4060hc's as the beater cordovan boot. At 1yr plus, they get worn in rain, mud and snow. I play soccer in them with my son and his buddies. They look pretty new still. My IG has a few images of the boot holding up well.
Of course, MrDV has such a sweet collection of grail boots and shoes that I could appreciate the inclination to handle the collection more delicately than some.
For the sake of my obsessiveness, I keep a shoe brush in the work bag so there can be ad hoc brushing whenever my shells get hit with rain, hail, snow or mud. Of course, there's also leather defender...
For me I don't consider if the shoe / boot calf or shell when it comes to rain.
For me it's about the sole
If it's a normal work day and my walk is car to office, I'll wear whatever.
If it's raining, and I know I'll be walking on concrete I'm putting on a commando sole, be it shell or CXL, doesn't matter.
I want to wear them and have them look like nice lived in shoes, when they are pristine, I'm not really a big fan of the look... The Indy's from the other day were really well worn, I'm not sure I could let a pair of mine get to that point.
I always travel with a shoe brush, horn and microfiber polishing cloth (and trees). I generally do not bring defender or a conditioner on short 3-4 day trips
BNpost #80330 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:35am3/16 is the mark for both length and width to increase sometimes that is really 1/8 depending on the stitcher
Thanks for the insight guys I plan to see how far off the ball of my foot will land
Also is the Zug Grain MTO boot happeningpost #80331 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:40ampost #80332 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:41ampost #80333 of 1224165/1/14 at 8:43ampost #80334 of 1224165/1/14 at 9:38ampost #80335 of 1224165/1/14 at 9:43ampost #80336 of 1224165/1/14 at 9:44ampost #80337 of 1224165/1/14 at 10:04ampost #80338 of 1224165/1/14 at 10:05ampost #80339 of 1224165/1/14 at 10:06ampost #80340 of 1224165/1/14 at 10:09am
