A size 10 D Barrie fits me perfectly. I found a boot that I want and the problem is it is only available in a 9 1/2 E or a 10 1/2 D. I do not want to go with the shorter boot. If I get the 10 1/2 D and put a pair of Dr. Scholl's inserts in them do you think that might help with the fit or do you think that a 10.5 D has that much more extra room that they would just be unwearable? SORRY. Meant for Alden Appreciation thread.
