Probably too late now, if you want something that's already been ordered you may have a shot if they have your size available

The 8.5 will fit snugger than the Indy's you got though in CXL - the captoe does that. Just FYI

You should want this pair. The captoe design kind of gives it a sleeker look as far as Trubalance goes, and sleek Trubalance = your user id.

this is as close as you'll get, I think, or the Roy boot:

but both are a bit different from the Indy boot. Different soles, the one from Context has a 360 degree welt, and waxed laces (a plus). I believe both have full leather linings, while the standard Indy boot doesn't, though.

Meermin gets their cordovan from Argentina.
does it smell as nice as Horween's? that's some of the best smelling leather to me. I know it's tanned for a very long time, maybe Comipel doesn't spend as long tanning theirs, hence it not being as oily, smelling the same, and getting welts (from the lack of oil).

I don't recall any particually strong leathery smell from the Tricker's. At this point they smell like any other pair of 6 month old boots. (I can't believe I just went and sniffed my boots).
They've had no problems with water welts.

The pair I've had the most trouble with welts is my RL Lindricks made with Horween. Whether a pair suffers from the welts seems to be luck of the draw.

Quick question gents,

I'm thinking into buying Ultimate Jumper boots in 8.5E and wear Alden cap toe boots in Grant Last in 9D.. My left foot measured a size 9D+ width (slightly wider than average width) and right foot measured 9E. Will the size 8.5E in Jumper boots Truebalance Last be ok?

thanks

Alden Semi-Brogues on the Plaza last in color #8 from Leather Soul Beverly Hills. I tried these on last December but couldn't pull the trigger. Amazingly, they still had a pair in my size when I stopped by yesterday. Bryan wanted them out of the shop, and I wanted them on my feet. I almost forgot how good that rich eggplant color looks when new. I didn't realize how brown my old pair of 974 wingtips (on the Tremont last) had become until I laid them side-by-side.

The smell test is the best test for new shoes! Not so much for six month old ones. I haven't actually had the nerve to take mine out in the rain yet, only wear them if it's sunny out. also just got them, so I'm sure eventually it'll change. I've heard stories of permanent welts (which may be totally unfounded) and it scared me a bit.

You will in all likelihood be fine. I wear 10D in grant and can wear 9.5E in barrie/trubalance easily.

I love LS's chromexcel makeups. I already have their chukkas, is this high boot next?

I wear a 7E in TruBalance and a 7.5D and found that 7.5D just fits comfortably. I can't imagine sizing that way with a more narrow last. everyone's different, though.

HELP, trying to locate:

 

Whiskey PTB or LWB (9.5D)

Ravello belt (36)

 

Any leads/info on where I can find either?  Thanks!
