Also see these burnished tan covers by Leffot - surprised I haven't seen more mention of them before:

Those are quite nice. Surprised I have never clicked on them.

Because for every 5 of something they make, 100 people want to buy it and 5 of them very quickly do.  Supply vs demand.

Thanks, Dubs.

I take the same size as Barrie, due to the instep.

I actually like how they fit.

Thanks.

When I was in DC a couple of weeks ago I tried on the loden green Michigan Boot and if I were to buy it, I would take it TTS (for reference sake, I am a 7.5D/E in the Barrie and an 8 on the Brannock and my other Van-lasted Alden, I'd take the Michigan Boot in the 8).

When I first saw the pictures of the Michigan Boot online, I didn't care for it and thought to myself, "Why not just get an Indy Boot?" But after seeing them in person, I really like them and decided they are a great alternative to the Indy Boot for those that don't like the shape of the TrueBalance last.

I wondered about that.  I had the same reaction to the Michigan Boot when I saw it.  Thanks for sharing.

Well I'm perplexed - happy but perplexed.  My Barrie size is 8.5D and I ordered the BB PTBs in a size 9 only to learn here that I was likely out of luck in that they would be too big.  They just arrived and, well, they are marked as a size 9 but seem to fit my feet like an 8.5D would.  I'm wondering if maybe they are Barrie lasted but BB sizes them up by 1/2 for their listing (list 8.5 as 9, 9 as 9.5, etc…) to do away with confusion and actually allow the buyer to order their shoes TTS?  I had only a few minutes to try these on, so perhaps I missed something and am overly optimistic, but they seem to work very well and I doubt I'd find them to fit so well and so snug if they were 1/2 size too big.  Would be interested in hearing from others re their experiences when they get theirs.  As it stands, these cost me $62 factoring in a $100 gift card I had sitting around for a while (finding nothing of interest at BB to spend it on).

The Tremont is a great last.  I have the Alden DC whiskey SW bals in that last and they're probably the best-fitting Aldens I own.  I went the same size as in Barrie/Trubalance and am glad I did.
