Based on the pic below, and what I'm feeling on my feet, the Barrie has a wider heel relative to the ball than the Trubalance.
272
I've got a new pair of shell PTBs on the Barrie that feel great with thinner (i.e. certainly not thin) socks in the ball of the shoe but very loose side to side (not so much lengthwise) in the heel. With thicker socks (Wigwam hikers) the shoe feels decent overall, but the ball is just a bit on the tight side and the heel remains a tad loose.
Should I expect the shoe to conform better to my feet as the soles and the leather break in? I guess my next remedies will be some tongue pads and / or insoles. Any suggestions?

 

The Barrie at least seemed considerably wider than the Trubalance in the various pairs I have tried on.  I figure that's ok in boots but just about nothing else.  Are there any PTBs out there that aren't on the Barrie?

I know it has probably been asked several times, but does anyone know a good source for replacement Indy boot laces?

Very nice.  I particularly like the look with the denim.  Definitely will be trying some kind of variation of that in the near future.  Thanks for the tip!

Surely not.  They look like shell to me.  Correct me if I'm wrong, Uncle.

 

EDIT:  Oh shit, first post on the 2,000th page!

1,000 for me.  The number of pages depends upon your personal preferences setting for the number of posts per page.
