    You're comparing two different angles of vantage. Even still, I can see the obvious difference in the toe box.

    Flip your shoe over and take the same pic that I took of the bottom of my shoe. Then you'll know how obviously different the two lasts are.

    And if I were to ask someone to identify a last, that's how I'd do it, by comparing the sole profiles side by side:

    I guess we can agree to disagree.

    As I originally stated, your original pic looks just like the M58 last. The fact that you have to demo that it's not the M58 by taking a pic of the sole proves my point.

    Also look at the heel shapes, they are not the same...

    Can we put this to rest? Seems like a really useless debate. As long as the shoes fit, can't see any problems.

    There's no disagreement. You're just flat out wrong in every regard, and at this point you're just trolling.

    I acknowledged I was wrong in guessing the last. However no, I'm not wrong in 'every regard', as I believe I proved that your pic looks very much like the m58 last; so it was an honest mistake.

    So, why don't you acknowledge this, and while you are at it, take a chill pill...

    Also, it's telling that you went back and changed the original pics. Clearly you feel there is merit to what im sayin or you would not have done that. Luckily I have the images copied above so others can see.

    Very typical actually. When someone gets all bent out of shape on a forum, the first thing they usually do is resort to calling people 'trolls'.

    Hey fellas,

    Barrie 10.5D = Grant 11D correct?

    I wish the heel slippage in my Barrie's didn't mess with my decisions on other lasts so damn much.

    please forgive the dumb question, but how did you know they were up for pre-order? [​IMG]

    I'd like to know too. I've been trying to figure out if Leffot takes pre-orders for sizes other than D but no answer so far

    You can call Steven, or even better, visit the store if you can. He will let you know if they can do other sizes; however, from my experience, most have been D sizes. Good luck!

    +1 for emailing Colin.

    Service was excellent when I dealt with Leffot earlier this year.
