Does anyone know if there are slight tweaks to the Barrie last every so often. The color 8's are from 2017/18, whereas the color 4's are 2021. Both fit amazingly well, but I started to notice that the toe angle has been changing. These are D widths. I usually wear E width and haven't noticed the change in shape for the wider variant.

Apologize in advance if this is redundant. I believe I saw this on a previous discussion in the past year or two, but couldn't find the thread.

Very interesting question that I do not know the answer to. However, I don't see how/why Alden would make such a change.

From the photo, they do look a bit different, but the 8's are well worn and the 4's are new.


I do know that certain patterns do fit differently, despite being on the same last; in this case that is not the case, but just know that that happens.

Appreciate the insights. In regard to the well-worn (and molding), that's what my intuition tells me.

I like those. I also really like the black pair with the gold eyelets. Anyone have a pair? Very tempting.

Don't have the Mitchell V-tips, but they are killer looking boots.

OMG....we are actually going out to a Pizza place this evening, and sitting inside. Things are getting back to some semblance of normal. Decided to wear one of my favorite bootsView attachment 1608817
Awesome - have fun and enjoy. One positive of the pandemic has been that some of us take these small occasions less for granted now than in the past. We're also getting pizza but take out still since my children aren't vaccinated and we're still cautious about exposure.

The boots look great. I can see why they are one of your favorites.

They are the Ealdwine "AuDog" boot :)
