    My size in Barrie and Trubalance are the same, but YMMV.

    It could work depending on the shape of your feet, but most people are the same size in both lasts with the Trubalance being the slightly wider last in the forefoot.

    I emailed last night and got a response this morning saying they will ship this week. I have no idea what will ship (my original shoes, new ones, or what?), but I'll know soon enough.

    Thanks for the help

    If they have crepe soles then I think they are the Ravello LWBs from AoC. BTW his website says he has an irregular in 10.5D and an overstock in 11D if anyone is interested...

    Gorgeous shoes. I normally hate the crepe sole, but would snatch those up in an instant if I came across a good deal in my size. For some reason, I really like the way they look on the longwings.

    The crepe soles are perfect for the BC's rainy coast.
