    No flash used but Galaxy Nexus's camera is sub par at best. I would like a cigar cap toe with flex welt for the sleekness. Already have cigar cap toe with commando:slayer:

    Well crap. Mine arrive on Wednesday and I was told to order true to size by Leffot and SF. I wear an 8.5d on barrie and trubalance, and I ordered a 9 on the daytripper. I have a pretty narrow foot and it looked like a narrow last. Now I am extremely concerned. Shitty shit shit shit.

    Yeah, I'm an 8.5D in the Barrie and ordered a 9D in the Day Tripper, but I'm sure they'll fit fine. I've always found that with boots a little room is not the end of the world the same way it is with shoes.

    Not to worry friend. I have never considered the Grant anything but TTS, at least for my foot. I first sized 1/2 down as per the suggestion of some, and the fit was miserably tight. Some size down, but there are many that don't.

    I'm 11.5 in barrie, steven said go TTS for the day trippers so I went with a 12.

    slipped them on today, sockless, and they fit perfect. I intend on wearing thin socks with these typically so I think TTS was the perfect advice

    I sized down and I'm concerned I should not have done so. Original listing for the day tripper suggested go with the Barrie sizing. Now it seems the latest advice is TTS. I'd rather have gone TTS, because the size difference is nominal going up, but too tight is insupportable. The unfortunate thing is I likely could have changed my order. I was due to receive my trippers with the last order that came through during Christmas 2011. I was traveling, and Steven couldn't reach me so my reserved pair was released to some lucky soul. It will be a real shame if I finally get my pair only to discover the fit is too tight. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this order will work out. I don't want to have to try a third time.

    Whew... Thanks I definitely remember several users saying this same thing. I've been waiting for the daytrippers/ravello so damn long even if they are a bit big it might be worth wearing hiking socks with them everytime lol.
