    Your soft creases look so good. Cigar is the winner, IMO.

    Most likely, 8.5D. But it all depends on your foot.

    I haven't been a huge fan of slip-ons, but I recently acquired a new, first quality shell LHS. I bought a 9D in the Van last, which is my normal size in the Barrie (TTS is 9.5D). I would appreciate hearing from the slip-on guys out there in regards to sizing, heel slippage (none?; first few wears?, numerous wears?), general break-in time, etc. Thanks gents. :D

    I have a flat wide foot and found that the LHS (van last) worked awesome for me. The fit across the vamp was no issue.I wend with my barrie size (11.5D). It's a little more snug across the board compared to the barrie, but his helps when going sockless.

    My #8 Shell LHS didn't take too long to break in and feel like slippers. However i did make the mistake of wearing them sockless on one of my first outings and ended up with a few blisters from heel slippage.

    But now that I have work them for almost a year they are one of my favourite pairs...by far.

    black BB unlined will be my next LHS

    Yeah, I have a wide foot but a high instep, so the vamp kills me on the cordovan LHS. Does anyone find the vamp getting more comfortable over time? I have the unlined LHS in suede, the vamp was very tight on it as well, and I had some pain at first, but now the vamp is loosening up a bit (I wear it sockless).
