But I usually only put it on during rainy season, or I'm going out to a bar where beer or something might spill.

I recently bought Alden Leather Defender to protect my shell PTB's. I purchased it from Kathy at Alden DC (more on that story later) and she reiterated that it is mainly for shell, "but you can use it on calf too, if you want" and will prevent water spots, if caught in the rain, she also made sure to tell me to "spray it on a cloth first, then apply to the shoe using the cloth." I followed her advice, and it looks fine on shell, although I have not worn them in the rain yet.

I plan to treat all of my shell shoes with it in the comming weeks.

some help with my understand of sizing would be useful.  I have added some comments that i think are correct from my reading, but please correct me if you opinion is different.

 

I have a perfect fit with unlined shell PTB barrie 8.5B/D ... my understanding is the lined version sizing is the same

I fit ok with shell barrie LWB 8.5B/D .... thicker socks would make for a perfect fit

 

i *think* i am a 8D in CXL indy ... i tried on some a year or so ago and i think they were D width, i recently tried on a pair of 8E and they were a touch to wide on one foot (esp at the heel) ... and were much easier to get on initally than the ones i tried on a year ago.

 

personally if i could get boots that fit as well as the unlined PTB it would be superb.  although i havn't tried any barrie boots, i think it might suit me better than the trubalance.

 

IIRC the LWB is comparable in fit to the chukka.  

How does other boots compare?  thinking about a para or the crew perf captoe?  

Does anyone have barrie lasted indy's ... if so how does the fit compare with the barrie PTB or the barrie LWB

 

any advice appreciated.
