Would I, then, also be a 9,5 in the longwings?

Thanks

I wear the same size in the TruBalance and the Barrie (US10D) and a 10E in G&G, for example.

I have a high instep. I'm sure the stitching on my LHS will come undone. I fully intend to have it fixed locally to preserve the stretch.

Thanks to HorseHide for these Cigar Captoe Boots with Commando Soles on the Grant Last (9D). All my other Aldens are 8.5D on the Barrie last so I took a flyer these would be TTS. Now I'm trying to get use to the sleeker look of the Grant last compared to the Barrie

Thank you for the reply. Would you say the Clarks and Barrie last fit about the same?

I could probably get away with something smaller in the DBs or GTs, though I'm not 100% sure. You're probably closer to a 7.5 in the Barrie last.

Hope this helps!

My feet are shorter but wideish. I wear:
- Chucks: 8
- Clarks DB: 8
- Wolverine 1k mile: 8
- Redwing GT: 7.5

Thanks for any feedback!

I wear GT in size 9, size 8.5 in Barrie/Trubalance boots and shoes. That should really clear things up!

Those look great.

I have a pair in 10.5D that I may put up for sale soon. PM me if interested.

My new favorite spring/summer boot! The Indy boot looks fantastic in suede, and it is extremely comfortable and soft. . .highly recommend these.

It's a weird comparison, but I'd say they're close to the same, although the Clarks seem a bit roomier, particularly with regard to the shoe box width.

Thanks. So the Barrie and the TruBalance are quite similar, sizewise?

I saw those at Union Made in SF. I really like them. I wasn't sold on the red rubber but these shoes convinced me.

Exactly how I felt! The red sole complements the brown suede perfectly, and the natural welt makes a great transition.

So, I decided to get a pair of boots.
Thanks to LS for their help, what a great bunch of guys over there.

My fist pair of Alden boots, hopefully not my last.







and as you can see, the dog approves of these
