I know the feeling, my second job pays for my frivolous spending.

+1. She typically puts an order through in the Aug/Sep time frame. That's the time I remember for the Whiskey Indy she did for SF 2 years back.
Thanks, I just sent Nick V. a PM with the same question. I'd likely have him do the work anyway.
I've seen other mfr's offer a waterloc type sole but haven't read about a cobbler offering a similar aftermarket product. My old Wolverine 1Ks had a similar oiled sole. This also begs the question, how do flexwelt/waterloc equipped models like the 1494 unlined chukkas differ from non-flexwelt models? Does the flexwelt refer to just the waterloc sole or are there other differences?
I wear 10D in barrie and 10.5D in the AE 5 last. Hope these pics help you...
The length should be about the same but the barrie is clearly roomier. The heel and arch are certainly wider in the barrie. However, be careful as the storm welt will give the barrie an even wider appearance. Half size down usually works for most. Good luck my friend!
