post #86566 of 87604

Just did the alt wein pre-order

 

I think the whole 6-18 months window for delivery is what convinced me. Clearly if I change my mind I know I have no other shot at a pre-order for a year or longer.

 

If all else fails I can flip it in ebayland as ravello and save on the capital gains tax.

I take the same size in boots for both lasts. The Barrie boot definitely fits a little more narrow for me, but were perfect after they broke in.

^^ I think Buda was trying to make a sleeker Trubalance by going with a C width. Not necessarily see if they'd fit. For as wide as the Tru is I could see a C width still fitting.

I was thinking about trying the same thing. I preordered 8D but was considering changing to 8.5C or possibly 8C because of how wide Trubalance is. I only have one pair of Indy's currently in Trubalance. Im going to try them on tonight and see just how much give I have in both the front near my toes and the sides.

The Leffot also seems to be a bit taller or go higher at the ankle? Thanks for the info BK!

See Ya,

Really happy I got that Leffot naval boot. The antique and all eyelets are clutch. Can't wait.

I agree, it's an awesome boot, specially with all eyelets, and Antique edge. I already have the #8 JCrew, and a #8 NST all eyelet on Aberdeen. Trying to decide if a #8 Naval fits in the rotation?

See Ya,
Steve
