Can anyone weigh in on the fit of the NST/Tanker boots on Barrie last, perhaps in comparison to other Barrie lasted boots (wingtip, plain toe, cap toe, etc)?
I'm thinking the Tanker may be a touch too small for me in my usual Barrie size: LWB's fit me perfectly in a D-width...but Barrie Wingtip boots seem to run just a bit more narrow and tight across the instep, so I've wondered if this is true of Barrie-lasted boots in general. Also, without having compared them side by side, the Tanker boot looks like it may even be narrower than either the Barrie wingtip boot, plain toe boot, or cap-toe boot, Should I maybe bump up 1/2 size and stay in a D-width for Tankers if I want them to fit more like my normal size for LWB's?
I've got the Barrie lasted tanker from Context Clothing in a 7.5E as well as some wingtip boots from LeatherSoul also in a 7.5E and on the Berrie last. They seem to fit the same to me. Any difference is negligible.
