I wear a size 8.5E in the Barrie last. I have an opportunity to purchase a new pair of LHS (cordovan) in a size 8.5D for a great price. I understand the Van and Barrie last are very similar. Will they eventually stretch wide enough to be comfortable? I wouldn't normally take the risk, but the price is tough to pass up on.
FWIW - I wear 9D in Barrie and 9C in Van. This would be roughly the same conversion for you.
