Yes - feet specific.

For me:
9.5D Grant (9D, which I have tried, is too small).
9.5D Plaza boots
9D Plaza shoes

Couldn't successfully sell my Indy boots - so now looking for a cobblier in Boston.  Anyone have suggestions for where to go - I need new heels!

Wherever you go, make sure they use the Foot Balance heel that the boots came with.  I've heard that if they replace it with a standard block heel, that it will change your stride and the boot will develop a new set of creases accordingly.

Hey Seven, do the Plaza boots run smaller? narrower? ...similar to the way barrie boots are perceived here??

I wouldn't necessarily say that, and, quite frankly, I could make plaza shoes in 9.5D work. My size differential is due, in part, to the fact that my Plaza boots are worn with medium weight socks and my Plaza shoes are worn with thin dress socks. Further, snug fitting shoes is a good thing and most times preferred; however, snug fitting boots, at least for me, is not preferred.

NOTE: For those on the fence about Plaza boots, I would encourage you to try them. It is for me - easily - the best boot last that Alden uses.

I think i'm going to sell them.

(up in marketplace if anybody is interested actually

Is it the heel? Think a cobbler could change it out?
post #71154 of 86523

I just receive the  975 replacement. I measure the width of the shoes and found that left shoe is 1mm wider than the right shoe.Also, the medallion looks a bit off. Is this a big problem? Any other problem on the shoes that should be a deal breaker? Thanks in advance

^^ 1mm? It is probably just the way the sole was trimmed. I wouldn't worry.
