That's my fave #8 make-up, but I can't wear the Barrie. Looks amazing IRL.

Fantastic Uncle. I'm curious: do you have a favorite pair among your whiskeys?

Got these in last night from Need Supply. My Christmas present from the wife (I got them early, too!) - she is the BEST.

Curious, why can you not wear the barrie? I'm beginning come to grips with the fact that barrie lasted shoes don't fit my feet very well, the heel is just too sloppy. probably going to be letting go of my natural chromexcel nst soon, even though i love the makeup.

for others out there that don't like the barrie, what lasts are your favorites (fit wise)? i've gotten the best fit from the plaza boot.

Have you tried going down a width to counteract the sloppy heel?  (I know C widths are hard to find)

I missed out on the Leffot pre-order for these amazing pebble grain LWB's: http://leffot.com/shop/alden-x-leffot-longwing-black-alpine-grain-reserve-order-copy/

I would give a small fortune if I could find them or something similar in a 10D.

I really can't decide if I should keep my size 8.5 color8 PCT from Jcrew or try a size 9. The 8.5's fit well but are a little tight across the top of the foot.

I have 8.5 indy's and they fit well now after break in. I just heard that shell doesn't stretch so I am guessing it won't get any looser?? Any truth to this?

How many times have you worn them so far?  They can loosen up a little, but nothing like calf.

 

Edit:  Also, your foot will sink in to and make and impression in the cork insole.

yeah, i tried tts length & down a width for a chukka. might have been ok after break in, but felt too narrow at the forefoot so i didn't risk it.

also, the heel cup on the barrie is not only wide, it is relatively shallow. maybe I should try the modified last. http://mouldedshoe.tumblr.com/post/24474857091/alden-barrie-last-and-modified-last-measurements

oh...I've worn them for about an hour inside the house only so far.

than if they are just a little tight, I would definitely stick with them.  They'll probably end up being a perfect fit.

 

Others feel free to weigh in.

I have owned lots of shell and I do not recomend counting on it to give. If it is tight it will be tight for a long time - it might even be tight for your heirs.

Edit: I, like others, find the LHS tight across the instep. Thankfully I can wear them but it takes a very long time before the leather has given enough to make them completely comfortable. I would try the larger size and see if you like it better. One thing is true about shell --trying them on beats guessing.
