    Are those Day Trippers? Big win. I'm anticipating the Grant last boots I ordered. I have given up on the Barrie.

    I don't want to be a downer, but I'm not sure what sort of "miscommunication" would result in that shitty repair. "Hey Alden, I really hate this guy, please do a shitty job. Ed." Only to find out "oops sorry I didn't actually want you to do shitty job! That guy is actually sort of cool. Sorry for the miscommunication."

    Thanks for the heads-up Zippyh about the slippery crepe soles. I haven't had that problem yet, but guess I'll find out this winter.They are super comfy though.

    I have almost busted my butt a few times walking downhill on slick sidewalks with the double leather soles on my Color 8 LWBs. Even though they are more stylish than the crepe, I will not wear them in the rain anymore.

    Oooof im reconsidering the plaza last. It's hard to properly size this last. TTS feels big but half size down and it's tight. I tried on an E width but i don't like the look. I then went tts and narrowed down to a C width but the boot feels a touch long and the small toes are scrunched. To sum it up, plaza last is a tad voluminous for me for me a hard to size. Any insight would be appreciated
