    Thanks, and sorry, we just did this one in mediums. If you've never worn the Tru-Balance last, then it is pretty wide compared to most.

    I already have a pair of Indy's and the size 8EE fits me perfectly though. So I guess this is another beautiful pair of Indy's I have to pass on.

    I understand Trubalance last runs larger, and the general advice is to size down 1/2. but my problem is... not sure what size to size-down from? Most my sneakers are size 10, my redwing GT's are size 9, i have dress shoes that range from 9.5-10. My foot measures about 27 cm from toe to heel.

    I am interested in Indy's, which is why I'm trying to figure out what size Trubalance last would fit me best. If anyone could advise what size would be best for my feet , i would be ever so grateful.

    List your sizes in some specific shoe models and we can try to help.

    we got same shoe size. size down half from GTs = 8.5 on Indys :: although, i took a wider route = 8.5E for comfort+flexibility. i can wear them with thicker socks in winter and thinner socks w/leather insoles in summertime.

    Thanks for the info IIIrd Icon, much appreciated.


    GS, those look great and those laces, no way those came with the Aldens. Are they PS by any chance? I know you can usually get free laces from the PS store, just curious as I like actually like those laces with the shoes.


    what is PS?

    i need laces. [​IMG]
