    Another sizing question - if I wear a 12C in the Trubalance (I have a pair of brown chrome excel Indys), is there any way I could fit comfortably into a 12D boot in the Barrie last? From what I've read, the Trubalance is the widest last. The Barrie is wide as well, but might be slightly narrower than Trubalance. There's a pair of 12D Ravello wingtip boots I really want, but I'm afraid the D width might be just a little too big. I wouldn't even mind wearing thicker socks with these, but I definitely don't want my foot sliding around when I walk.

    sounds like theyll fit length wise but will more than likely be too wide. However its nothing a thick sock cant remedy

    I think it's alright...when the methodology of tanning shell cordovan for footwear purposes was developed in the early 20th century, the focus was on work boots.
    In other words, the modern shell cordovan as we know it started life as upper & sole leathers for boots that were meant to be beaten up.
    Anyway, Viberg's actual hiker boots are around the $700 mark :p

    I got a pair of awesome waterproof Solomon hiking boots for about $150. I've used them about 3-4 times a year over the past few years for strenuous hiking and they've held up really well. I would definitely suggest this route rather than wearing shell boots.

    Nifty pics, thanks! You ride a Norton?

    And the captoes are definitely on my list. The plain toe Indys, as well. I'm afraid the shifter will destroy the stitching on the trad Indy.
