    They shipped Canada Post/USPS for me. No customs charges.
    Took a week to get from BC to Seattle though.

    So excellent. The Grant last really makes it. Is conventional sizing wisdom for the Grant is a half size up from Barrie/Trubalance size?

    I'm not sure how a loafer would affect things, but I sized up from Barrie back to TTS for my Grant boots.

    Yeah, that's my understanding as well. Does that same sizing advice hold up for Grant shoes (not boots)?

    Also A+ @Don L

    @applky @don l @Shawnc @ATLvol

    Thank you! Love the loafers too!


    My true barrie size is 8.5E but 9D works just as well for me. I sized these Grant-lasted loafers at a 9D on the advice of Alden Madison and they are a great fit. Definitely enough room for my high instep.

    Walking the hills of SF makes the boots crease harder, so quicker rolls and patina!

    Love these cigar WTBs!

    I don't have any shoes on Grant (are there any?) so I didn't want to imply that I had tried Grant in anything other than boots.
