    Can someone tell me how the Rain last fits compared to Alden Barrie? I just got a new pair of Alden 990's in size 8.5D and they are a touch big. I could either probably just get a bit thicker dress socks, or wait a few months for a size 8D. Or get these http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/boots/products/carmina-cordovan-chukka

    I like the shape of the Rain last better than Aldens, just not sure about fit.

    Thanks.

    Most people say to order your Barrie size for the Detroit. So you would be a 7UK. How is the barrie large? Length or width?

    Thanks. The Barrie is a bit wide at the ball of my foot. There is also quite of a bit of space on the top of and below my foot when I walk. The length seems fine, although I think an 8 would also be fine in that regard.

    To clarify, there is just space above and below the ball of my foot when I walk. The heel is secure.

    Rain isn't as wide as Barrie.

    Sorry, I was asking about the Detroit last. I'm looking at the Carmina cordovan chukkas.
