    Thanks. Too bad there's so much variance even among the same last. Seems strange that there would be.

    It's funny because I feel like I am swimming an my 8D Indy and my 8D Barrie boots are snug. There is a big difference between the Trubalance and Barrie to me

    I went down a half size for my Indy boots from barrie, and the fit is much better. My Indy boots that were the same size as my Barrie shoes always just felt too large.

    But I'm thinking my LWB size should now also be a half size down since those run big too.

    Yeah, you are probably right. I suppose one can make up the slight difference in the LWB by wearing a thicker sock, which I've been doing and it's been fine.

    I am always intrigued by the thought of trying Indy's a half size down. Interesting that it worked for you cause I always here that everyone goes same size on Trubalance and Barrie. I compensate by lacing tight and using a thicker sock but ultimately I think a half size down is the right answer

    It's really a lot better for me. Before my Indy boots felt clunky, now that I sized down they feel just right and frankly a lot more comfy and fun to wear. The difference is a minor one, but for my feet, it became very clear that my Trubalance size is 8D even though my Barrie size is 8.5D.

    I think this can work well in part because Trublance is such a wide last.
