I previously had the Ironsides Indy boot and they were great, but I have come to terms with the fact that the Trubalance last just doesn't work for my feet, but the Barrie works perfectly. I would prefer these in size 8.5 but a 9 will work with thick socks. Any condition is acceptable,. I'd also be interested in other stuff in the reverse earth chamois leather as long as it's not on Trubalance, would prefer Barrie and Grant. Thanks!
