    I have some Indy boots in 9.5D on the TruBalance last. They fit okay with thick socks, but I keep on thinking 9.5C would be better. Has anyone tried them in a C width? Does it make much of a difference? I know there are other lasts one could try, but I would worry they might not be as supportive as the TruBalance?

    I wear Indy Boots in the same size I do the Barrie last - 9.5B.
    I prefer to wear light Smartwool hiking socks with my Indy Boots. They are a work boot and, in my opinion, not meant for dress socks.

    I actually have two indy boots that are 9.5 C. I think a D width in trubalance would have been too wide. The C width fits perfect. My other Barrie last shoes and boots are 9.5 D for comparison.

    Wow, small world!

    Grant is somewhat of a tweener, some people wear it same size as Barrie, some go tts. I think instep wise it's just as roomy as the Barrie last, however the toe box is slightly narrower. Feel free to PM me on here and maybe we can work something out off eBay.

    I just noticed your name too by the way, cool!

    I had initially tried my barrie sizing for trubalance. I'm 12D Brannock, 11.5D in Barrie boots in shell.

    The 11.5D Trubalance was just too sloppy. The Trubalance is a WIDE last.

    I had tried an 11.5C, but with my wide toes, I was getting rubbing, and I settled on a 12C.

    So, for me, I found TTS in length, but a width down, fit me the best.

    I came across some 12B barrie shoes that fit nicely. If I ever see some trubalance 12B on the seconds list, I will grab them.

    Hey Gents,

    We've got a quick update on the TO Tie Guy boot. @EP Dylan just heard back from Alden and we're expecting them to land within the next few weeks [​IMG] We're really psyched to see how they make up!

    As always, let us know if there any any makeups you'd be interested in having us run. We have been absolutely swamped since the holidays but we're finally digging out and will be more present on this thread going forward [​IMG]
