    Guys, I have a pair of RL shell Cordovan Giffords that I'm thinking to let to. They were only worn a few times and practically new. Size 11D, comes in the box, etc.
    See couple of pictures and pm me if there is interest.

    WANT! And the US made Frye boots and shoes are great if you need lots of arch support and room up front.

    Cool. Would you go TTS, or size down like the Alden Barrie last?

    I go true brannock device size but I have archetypical ‘weird feet’. However my good guess is that TTS will be good but give an ‘american’ fit. If you’re used to Italian or French shoes or like a snug fit perhaps go down a half size. But since too small can’t be fixed and a maybe half size too big is resolved with boot socks or a thin insole, I’d go TTS.

    Most people go 1/2 size down from TTS on Barrie -- it is a roomy last for sure.
