why couldnt it be a 9D?!

also think this is an error since they cancelled my color 4 wingtip order but hoping that its true for those that can get them. (maybe its just jealousy)

guys - i called SM. The woman on the phone said they did indeed get a few pairs, even after Alden cancelled the order.

Jump on it. Hope the orders go through !

^ It's NOT an error.  I spoke to them and got a physical stock check.  I'm not so dumb as to make any assumptions.  I had my order cancelled by TSM as well, only to see these pairs miraculously pop up.

recently acquired natural cxl nst on the barrie, double waterloc sole, from the shoemart. perfectly fit the bill for the casual shoe i was looking for.

Everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Beebs, you are the best!! I had my order canceled as well and I just jumped on it. Let's see if it works out.

Might be an early Xmas present. Ha.

is E that much wider than D? I have enough heel slip on the barrie in D

my wallet says no i shouldnt but i might just have to try and see if it works out.

^ Unfortunately, when you size up in width from D to E, the heel cup increases from B to C, thus widening as well.  I have no problem making an E work in the forefoot, but my heel lifts like crazy with that pesky C cup.

 

But make no mistake, a C cup prevails over a B in all other facets of life. cheers.gif

I called TSM earlier today and the lady confirmed they have them, remarking "they are beautiful." And she confirmed the only sizes available are the ones on the website.

OK then. That's a holiday treat. Should have thanked thebeebs right off for the PSA rather than simply expressing skepticism. So, thank you sir!

I'm a D on the Barrie and the D on my shell Indy boot is a tad too wide for me. Wish I went with a C.

No. As in the Alden heel situation, oftentimes a C = slop in some way.

I don't think you get to sloppy until your around DD - but that is just one man's opinion.
post #37754 of 87732

Oh man... They have the #4 in my size... I shouldn't but the desire is strong

post #37755 of 87732
Ordered the 10.5 #4 but I won't believe it until I get a tracking #.
It is NOT fun navigating TSM via an iPhone.

Thanks for the psa thebeebs.
