+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.

Does anyone have a side by side comparison of Barrie last vs AE 5? Just for reference.

All this talk of waterlock gets me thinking. I'd like to replace the crepe sole on my snuff suede barrie chukkas with waterlock when the crepe wears out. I understand that Alden won't resole with anything other than what was spec'd at the time of manufacture. Has anyone seen an aftermarket/non-OEM waterlock type of sole?

i want to say b. nelson offers waterlock. i dont think waterlock is exclusive to alden

AE does a waterlock sole as well. However, there's something different about how it looks. Their version is almost more plastic-like.

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 believe you're right.  I think it is a JR waterlock.  I have them on a couple pairs of my boots, so far so good.

B Nelson does offer a waterloc outsole. I've had it done.
post #55842 of 86705

Thanks for all the feedback folks. Much appreciated.

SFTG, not surprising that you've had some first hand experience. Thank you for your help.

No I mean a picture. Like side by side of both of the shoes (from the top down) To see how much wider/etc the Barrie is.

I wear 10D in barrie and 10.5D in the AE 5 last.  Hope these pics help you...

and...

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!
