If they don't feel good, definitely return them. I assume you are talking about 1339s? Since those are unlined they will fit even more generously than a lined Barrie last shoe, and you might need to size down to get a good fit.
This is exactly the opposite of what I and others have experienced.
I sold my chukkas because they fit so tight I could barely put them on and I went true to size. I would need I size up in order for them to be even bearable. I measured and they were definitely smaller than my half size down ptb on Barrie.
