    I got a pair and they are definitely NOT Barrie lasted. I bought them in 12D, fits really well and is very comfortable. I have an 11.5D CXL PTB Barrie and it's really wide on my foot; and an 11.5D in two J.Crew boots (chukka and perf-captoe). So I do know how Barrie lasted shoes feel.

    I snagged some 403s in 11.5C, hope they work out :D Thanks for the link, OP!

    The pairs at eye level will wear out sooner.

    If that bump is a problem for you J. Crew has excellent customer service. I mean EXCELLENT. I don't see why they wouldn't ship you out another pair so long as you haven't put any wear on the soles. Give them a call I think you'll find them extremely accommodating.

    so I've been told the grant last runs more true to size than other alden lasts, and I wanted to see if I could get some sizing advice:
    I have a pair of Ravello brixtons from epaulet, which are on the barrie last for those that don't know, and the fit in a 9d hugs the sides of my feet slightly, not in an uncomfortable way, but almost as though it molded to my foot after a few wears. I know some people say the barrie is roomy but the 9d doesn't feel that way to me at all.
    I also noticed that the length is about a quarter inch longer than my other boots, don't know if the barrie last is typically longer like that, but I brought it up to give an idea of how it is.
    So, I'm planning on getting the 9.5D in the grant last. good idea?

    Awesome! Mine still haven't arrived but Fedex can run late so hoping they get here today

    And from what you're saying, it sounds like they are indeed on the Leydon last, which would be FKKN boss :slayer:
