when people say that "lasts" do not work for them, what do you mean? I have some of the Alden Barrie last that seem to work well, however when I wear Grant last my toes seem to get pinched (there is room, however I think I walk a bit on the inside of my shoe). do I need to always be a Size "e" or is it something with the last??
In the grant last, if Barrie D width works OK for you, you may either need to size up one length or one width. My best fitting boots are 10E in grant (I can wear 10D in barrie, though I prefer 9.5E)
