The Grant last in a boot form is fairly room though.
i have this same problem. i've all but given up on barrie lasted shoes. the only one i've found to like is the unlined ptb because it's so flexible. However, i can wear a barrie boot well enough, and a chukka too depending on the type of welt (some welts make the heel block even wider that throws off my stride).
stopped by j. gilbert on my lunch break. such a nice little shop. if they had my size in the tan suede chukka i would have picked them up. it's a nice makeup and i think i wouldn't mind the crepe sole.
for anyone who ordered the leydon suede ptb from NRO, any word on when they might come in?
EDIT: i was able to get NRO on the phone, and he said they're still in production, probably 4-6 weeks out. at least they answered the telephone!Edited by 100 yrs - 3/26/13 at 1:56pm
