    If I wear 11E in Barrie shoes and 10.5EEE or 11EE in Barrie/Trubalance boots, what would be my size in the shell cap toe boot on the Grant last?

    Great looking boots Elliot! I've been getting the itch for some Indy's myself. What kind of soles are on those boots? Unlike some of our illustrious cognizetti on this thread I can't immediately look at a pair of Alden's and discern style number, make-up, and who sold them when and where, but I'm learning.

    Maybe ShoeMart? The Leffot version has a commando if I'm not mistaken. Not sure who else does a natural Indy...

    tifosi, is your name also Elliott?

    Mine are from The Shoemart. The first pic is after 2 years, the second (hanging on wall) is not mine. The next 5 are right out of the box and the last one is my PTB after 1 year. The sole is the neocork, which is the same at the 403 and 405. I posted the different pics to show how CXL changes over time. Most people only post their beat up CXL, but I keep mine brushed and apply a little Venetian Shoe Cream. The CXL develops a good shine and is extremely comfortable.

    I think Venetian shoe cream and a good brush are the best.

    I see that Context have a snuff suede Roy Boot with waterlock sole available. Doesn't say anything about a pre-order which suggests they're available now? They look pretty nice to me.

    I'm looking forward to receiving the Rough Roy in early September.

    i find Trubalance to be the same or, if any difference, a bit wider than barrie. Obviously, your fit is different. But Grant is narrower than both, so 11EEE or even quadruple E.

    When I bought my Indys at the Madison store they only had 11E or 10.5EEE in stock and 10.5EEE was the better fit. 11E in shoes works, and it's an easier size to come by.

    Oh...

    I guess I need to try a pair on the Grant last before I decide to buy.

    +1. As a Pgh'er, I am curious about this as well. While I've yet to purchase anything from Nettleton's, I work pretty close to his store and have talked to him a few times. Talk about a nice and knowledgable owner. If I could find something unique, I would love to give him some business.
