    It's hard to figure out last sizes without trying them on. Before ordering, see if any local stores stock them. The fitting of lasts is really subjective.

    For example, I'm trying to go the otherway--from Trickers to Alden. I've found my Trickers size to be around an 8.5UK (fitting 6) but today I tried on some Indy Boots in the Trubalance last and found an 8.5US to work pretty damn well. I was really surprised. I didn't get them because I want to try a US 9 to be absolutely sure, but sizing is really dependent.

    hi all,
    So i'm looking to buy a pair of trickers in the 81 last. In alden, I can wear 11d or 10.5 d in the barrie, and 11d in the van last fits very well.

    11d in the barrie fits a smidge too big for my liking...any suggestions on what i should get in trickers on the 81 last?

    I have no Aldens, (though I do have Alden-made BB cordovan bluchers in which I wear a 10 US) but I have around five pairs of Trickers. I size down only half a size -- to 9.5UK -- in Stow, chukkas, country brogues. Trickers tend to be plenty wide, but for me a bit short. I also wear a 9.5 UK in JL William and Phillip.

    I took the full size advice with my first pair of Trickers and they destroyed my pinky toes.
