    Has anyone found they size similar in Grant and Barrie boots?
    I am very def 8E in Barrie boots and I found the 8.5E a little roomy in the Grant lasted 3980 #8 Boot .
    ...... i tried the 7.5E 3980 and there wasnt enough room in the toe box but i could still cram them in which made me think a size 8E (out of stock) would have been perfect.
    I was quite surprised as i had assumed they were Barrie .... but aldenshoe.com has told me they were Grant.

    Yes. For me, Grant in same size as Barrie is a slightly snug fit but still works.

    Thanks a lot shawnc. Matching or for some contrast is all good, I just really love to wear coloured laces unless I'm appearing before a federal grand jury. It's a fun way to dress up an outfit.

    Nice Don L. The matching slacks and socks makes your whiskey penny's stand out with good effect.

    RTP, I thank you sir. A reputation from your esteemed personage is greatly appreciated, even though you are overly complimentary in the extreme. Lol. One must be creative when one only has a scant percentage of your remarkable Alden wardrobe.

    For me Grant runs true to size and Barrie is larger than true to size. I wear one-half size longer in Grant than Barrie with the same width in both.

    And that is one good-looking medallion toe boot!
