    is E that much wider than D? I have enough heel slip on the barrie in D

    my wallet says no i shouldnt but i might just have to try and see if it works out.

    ^ Unfortunately, when you size up in width from D to E, the heel cup increases from B to C, thus widening as well. I have no problem making an E work in the forefoot, but my heel lifts like crazy with that pesky C cup.

    But make no mistake, a C cup prevails over a B in all other facets of life. [​IMG]

    I called TSM earlier today and the lady confirmed they have them, remarking "they are beautiful." And she confirmed the only sizes available are the ones on the website.

    OK then. That's a holiday treat. Should have thanked thebeebs right off for the PSA rather than simply expressing skepticism. So, thank you sir!

    I'm a D on the Barrie and the D on my shell Indy boot is a tad too wide for me. Wish I went with a C.

    No. As in the Alden heel situation, oftentimes a C = slop in some way.

    I don't think you get to sloppy until your around DD - but that is just one man's opinion.

    Ordered the 10.5 #4 but I won't believe it until I get a tracking #.
    It is NOT fun navigating TSM via an iPhone.

    Thanks for the psa thebeebs.

    ^ My pleasure fellas! It's the least I could do given the immense support of my Alden habit I've received via this thread.

    Thanks for the PSA. Hopefully you were able to get a pair in your size.
