    I wear the same in Park Ave and Barrie. AE-5 is a long last.

    If I wear 8.5 Indy boots what size should I get for the LWB and LHS?

    I also do tend to have a wider/flatter foot.

    Ok thanks. The barrie is a tad narrow for me in an D to begin with so i'll size up on the width as well as the 1/2 size on length.

    My color 8 PTBs look like a much brighter red. I wish mine looked as dark as yours. Mine are fairly new and have not been out very often. Are they likely to darken with more exposure to sun and other light?

    TTS - 9.5D
    Grant - 9.5D
    Barrie - 9D
    Van - 9C (too much heel slippage in the 9D for me; and I do wear them without socks all the time)

    Well, I guess I'll find out. I ordered the wingtip boots from Alden of Carmel at 9.5D on the Barrie last:

    Another NRO code for 20% off this weekend, and another Alden exclusion. I think they've been excluded on at least the last 3 or 4 codes. Seems like the days of getting Alden at 20-25% off from them might be gone.
