Wishing it was on Plaza.  I was confused as well but after looking at the front on image is was clearly Barrie

post #92372 of 122416
So has anyone who prefers an E width and half size down from D sizing in Barrie sized up in Plaza in a D width? Did it feel too long?

eg

You wear 9E in Barrie—can also wear 9.5D— and tried on a 10D in Plaza, which is "half size up from Barrie."

I can't fathom the 8.5D being a better fit than the 8E I tried in Plaza, even though I wear 8D in Barrie (but prefer 7.5E).

Damn these wide feet!

Before bothering with a cobbler, I would get out the horsehair brush and go to town on those for a while and maybe add just a touch of something to condition them (I like the neutral Venetian Shoe Cream for my CXL). The scratch/gouge doesn't look too terribly deep and CXL can take a pretty good beating. After a bit of cream and a few minutes with the brush they will likely look pretty good again.

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure if it is noticeable in the photos, but there is a flap of leather still attached to where the slice occured. Should this be glued down or something?

Some people will recommend using a little bit of "Shoe Goo" or a similar product on it. If I had some handy, I might use it, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to get some. If the flap of leather is small, I'd probably try just trimming it with some cuticle scissors and then brushing.

I know Indy boots are expensive, but letting them get a little beat up just adds to their character IMO.

These are Barrie according to Frans Boone...

I own the Context version of theses in black cordovan. They were my most worn boots last fall and winter. I may break them out this winter. They are awesome, versatile boots for the season.

I wear 9.5E in Barrie and 10E in Plaza. 10E is plenty long.

Just FYI, FBoone had them clearly marked Plaza just a day or two ago.
