So typically I have always thought myself an 8D on the Barrie last. When I was in New York recently I was told to try an 8E. I have an 8E Cigar Chukka here (LOVE this boot) and I am unsure of the fit. The shoe itself fits well across the vamp however I am getting a good amount of heel slip. I am unsure as to if the width is contributing to this or it is more a function of the 2 eyelet chukka? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated
Did you try an 8D? When you went from D to E width, you also went from B to C in heel width.
I am 9D in basically all of my Barrie's - shoes and boots, shell and calf and suede, lined and unlined. My unlined suede PTB's on the flex sole are easily the most snug of the bunch. My shell PTBs and shell 2-eyelet chukkas fit more or less the same and my shell LWBs are ever so slightly roomier than the shell PTBs/chukkas. My 2 eyelet chukkas fit just as well as my PTBs and neither have heel slippage.
My favorite shell chukka is cigar.
