    Folks, I have a classic question on how to down one size with Barrie last. I usually fit perfectly with 8E on White's boots and a bit tight on Alden 8D in grant last. Not sure what should I take between 8D, 7.5E or 7.5D in Barrie last.

    Thanks for any advise. Gotta order soon!

    I wear a 12D normally...and I'm a perfect 11.5 D in a Barrie last. I'm not sure if this helps or not, but I thought I'd chime in.

    I am an 8.5D on Grant and an 8D in Barrie. If you are a tight 8D in Grant I would think that a 7.5D Barrie would work well. IMHO.

    How about if I go for 7.5E on Barrie since my 8D grant is a bit tight on the width.

    The Barrie is quite roomy at the ball of the foot. I guess it depends on how wide you are. The Grant fits perfect at the ball of my foot, where the Barrie is looser in the same area. So depending on how tight the Grant is, I would say the Barrie would fit less tightly than the Grant even in a D width.

    It's not a problem! This is the best part about this community. I hope you find the correct sizing. Let us know how you make out!

    Great looking pair of boots, Sir. Looks highly versatile. I've always wondered about the Grant last but never had an opportunity to try it.

    Thank you very much and I am hoping so.

    Yes, looking at this picture I was always hesitant about Grant sizing. These work out perfectly at TTS.

    The Ravello and baby blue in your combo looks gorgeous. I happened upon that pairing by accident. Something about the light blue with your Ravello nst's that really makes them pop. Keep doing it Don L.

    I like your throwback nst's MrDV. The purple in your socks makes your feet look like your wearing two very stylish eggplants. Love the colour on the shoes. Was it close to the original after restoration? Any other info on them would be a bonus. Thanks.

    They look great on you man, glad they went to someone who is really enjoying them! It looks like the fit great on you. I replaced them with a 8E version of the same boot and found that it fits me better. Normally I'm a 8.5D brannock and 8 in barrie.
