Alden SF has a #8 trubalance tanker up for sale, so I ordered one to compare against my Leffot #8 barrie tankers (which are slightly too tight). Both are 9.5D, both are NST. It's hard to tell from the photos, but the barrie boot is ~1/4" longer and the trubalance boot is ~1/4" wider. I think I like the antique edge of the Leffot boot more.

BTW, anyone with a commando-soled barrie NST in 9.5E know what the widest width of your shoe is? I'd be curious to see how it compares to the 9.5D trubalance.
