yup...I had been on the pre-order list for over a year. When I talked to them on Friday the one person in front of me had finally gotten back to them and said they were taking them. Apparently something changed over the weekend as I got a call today they were available. I was surprised to say the least...

I use an Alden Foot Balance insole on my Indys. They were always a bit too roomy for me and the insole has made them a perfect fit. I believe it was BeSpiffington who tipped me off to the insoles.

I'll have to try this. Both my Indy and LWB are too roomy. I think I tried a Dr Schollz but it became too tight.

Wow...I have to do this for my PTBs. Did those insoles just fit in there perfect for the PTBs? They would really help me out with my slight heel slip I think.

 

Thanks BeSpiff!!

The Aldens are not the thinnest but they break in nicely. I am actually starting to prefer a shoe/boot with a bit of room and the use of an insole as opposed to a snug fit. I am going to try a pair of these (probably one pair of slim tech and one pair of leather or original) next to see if they work when I need something thinner than my Alden one

I have a pair of the Power Steps "slim techs" coming to me tomorrow from Amazon. They're 3/4 size. I used some Powerstep full length ones in my PTBs and they too up so much volume it was hurting my foot.

 

 

There are always these too...for you carbon fiber dorks out there (I'm one of them to): http://www.superfeet.com/en-us/carbon-73351  <--these just became available today

I have used Tacco insoles in my Indy boots with good results. I have also had good results with insoles in other shoes. I can't think of a reason it would not work in alden barrie shoes and wanted to poll the group for a reason not to consider the 8.5s.......

thank-you all for the input

One reason is that they say none are left! : /

+1 for tacco insoles, fit like wearing thick winter socks.

I'm glad that the obsessing over shoes spills over into concerns about fit for many here and not just me. Recently I've been continually worried that all of my shoes are a bit too snug -- but I'm pretty sure that, if I was a half-size up, I'd be annoyed that they were too loose and sloppy (that's even what I wrote as notes for myself when I tried on shoes on the same last a half-size or a width up).

congrats my friend, you must have quite the collection. Any chance you will be moving anything that doesn't get much use in your rotation?

A few photos my brother finally got around to sending me for some modified last shell

Do the Tacco insoles fit fairly TTS? I've been using Aldo's terry cloth insoles in my LHS's, but I've been looking for something thinner.
