Some would say 12 with the grant last... never hurts to be a bit big with boots (thicker socks).

one would be hard-pressed to find a better choice for you.

i find the grant last to be TTS.

I find them to be TTS (I have them).

I am TTS 9.5D
I have this boot in 9.5D.
Frankly, I would go to 10D before I would go to 9D.

It never hurts to order two sizes and send one back. nod[1].gif

Thanks a bunch guys! I'll get them in 12. Any idea how to find out if I should get the medium or wide width?

Get the width you usually get.

Would 36" laces be long enough for the indy?

I think that's going to be too short.

+1. I prefer a tight fit as they usually stretch out accordingly

There was some discussion regarding where to buy in Boston a few pages back.

The Tannery at 400 Boylston (the smaller one) has Alden shoes, but apparently that location ended their relationship with them one year ago and they are only selling their remaining stock. It appears they haven't updated their prices in a while and I know at least the PTBs are being sold for $565.

They don't have a huge size selection (they were out of my size), but I think they said they have sizes 7-8 and size 12 in #8 on the PTB. They have a number of other models available but I'm not sure about price or sizing availability. I know they carry black and #8 shell in monks, PTBs and LWBs, plus a few others.
