Had all of 5 minutes to check them out. Kind of the yang to the yin of the color 8s. Oily, dark, and rugged. I like them but they definitely will improve with age and hard wear. I never planned to baby the color 8s but I would also never reach for them in really bad weather. These will do that job.

They released them roughly 2 months ago if my memory serves me well.

A few years ago, Leather sole offered a plain toe blucher on aberdeen as well as, I think, plaza in the past in both color 8 and black shell.

I was minutes away from ordering them yesterday.

I know it is foot dependant and most people stay the same size in both Barrie and TB but I am wondering what the scenario would be for me.. Barrie is just slightly big in the forefoot for me. Would a TB boot be unreasonable (I would be wearing the boot in the winter with thicker socks).

Anyone have experience in this matter?

No spoiler since it's double Tankers.

Outstanding B! Congrats once again. Don't forget about Tanker Tuesdays once the weather start getting cooler.

I love my Aldens, but if any boot can challenge Alden, it's the Viberg Service Boot. Just pulled the trigger on these a week ago!!!

What you wrote in bold is not the same as what you wrote in the more recent post.

I am implying that it was a bad suggestion to "go back a couple of months" in the thread. It is not efficient and has 100s of posts per month. Had you said the latter (in your more recent post) I would have thought that was reasonable.

I dislike when people say go scour a thread for something when someone may know exactly where something is and can quickly post or repost the pics. In this case ATL and mdubs did it much faster than me searching.

Thanks for validating my use of the jackass emoticon.

If wearing with thicker socks you might consider bumping up a 1/2 size and/or width, depending on how the barrie fits you. If the Barrie is slightly big on your foot, you may be ok with thicker socks.

i recently picked up the Indy (TB) in my barrie size, that fits me well. With thinner socks they sizing was effectively the same but felt snug when I put on thicker athletic socks. FWIW you might try putting on your barries with the socks you plan to wear with the Indy's to get an idea.
