    the barrie last is wide all around and is thus accommodating of most feet

    the trubalance has a cut-in at the arch with a wide bulbous forefoot
    the cut in slightly corrects flat feet while the bulbous front accommodates the toe spread that occurs with pronation
    truebalance also often has a clef heel which slightly corrects ankle roll with pronation

    Why so long? Last week, I was also fortunate enough to get a pair of Ravello LWB's from Alden DC and they arrived in a couple of days. BTW - They're spectacular. Great choice.

    Wow. Great answer. Thanks, Closerlook. Does that mean if one has a "normal" foot that fits well in the Barrie last, the Trubalance last would NOT fit well?

    Thanks again.

    I should have phrased that better. I am out of town and won't be home to receive them until later this month. Thanks, they are my first foray into the rarer shells.

    Any 403/5 is on the Trubalance.

    Edit: Well, almost. Mine are.
