Question about fit of shell NST's in Barrie last with double soles

I picked up a pair of these recently and am trying to decide whether to keep them, due to the fit. The heel slips a bit when I walk, despite tying tightly and using tongue pads.

I have several pairs of Barrie-lasted shoes in the same size and they fit perfectly, but none in this precise combo of shell+double sole+not a boot. (for ex. i have calf longwings and shell boots, and there is no slippage; it's possible that the longwings slipped a bit early on but I don't recall).

The salesman said that once the double sole breaks in a little I should be fine. I also have heard that shell runs a little bigger than calf (or expands over time?), which would argue that the fit will not get any better.

I"m not sure if what the salesman is saying is right, or if the fit day 1 is essentially the fit you have for life, and perhaps I should return them. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Technique for speed hooks 2 at a time? Please share.

I beliee that these are the "whiskey" swb that I bought from the 2nds list a couple of months ago......wasn't quite what I was looking for so I sent them back a couple of weeks ago.....they looked great though if anyone is interested......I believe that the "defect" was some minor striping in the finish along the lower portion of the front of the shoes.....only noticeable if you are holding the shoes.

These LWB's are perfect. Ordered the Whiskey. Here's to hoping a pair from Carmel makes it to the TSM seconds list in my size.

Comparison shots. Here next to the recent Ravello Chukka and Ravello NST shoe.




Here compare to the Whiskey LWB that was recently shipped from TheShoeMart.




And I wanted something different, so I decided to go for a pair of Navy Suede PTBs. Think that they are kind of fun and I like the Navy and Antique look...

Have a good Friday gentlemen,

You beat me to it.  "Intrigued" is about right.  Really not sure what to make of em.
