    No. You have to call or email the shop to see what they have in stock.

    They had just a few pairs .. They told me it wasn't a full stock - just a few odd pairs that were delivered from the factory recently. I got lucky I guess and they had my size.

    That about describes my feet as well. What size did you end up determining was a good fit on the Barrie relative to your typical dress shoe size?

    Can anyone who owns both plaza and trubalance lasts compare the fit?

    I wear a 10D in plaza and have a 9.5D in trubalance on its way. Does that sound about right?

    Also maybe I should mention that the 10D is cordovan whilst the 9.5D will be chromexcel; for some reason I remember thinking that cordovan is a slightly larger fit than its chromexcel equivalent.

    I'm worried sizing down 1/2 might still leave the boot too big.
