    I wear same size in Barrie and Trubalance (8.5) which is a half size down from my usual size (9).

    For reference, I'm 10D-E and the 9.5D Barrie fits like a charm.
    Same math for me-I'm a 9.5E and a 9D Barrie is one of the best fitting shoe lasts I have.

Im still trying to figure out my trubalance size at the moment. Do any of u wear true to size or size down for this last?

    I have never tried on any of the Trubalance models, so I can't say how the two lasts compare to each other. Maybe others will weigh in with their own experiences.

    So size down in length should work ? I did try dropping a width on trubalance but was too tight in instep. Ive read barrie fits instep better but is slightly narrower last than tb

    You are almost certainly going to want to size down. My feet are similar in size to yours, except I run closer to an E. I have AE Bowery boots (same last as the Higgins Mill) in 10.5 E. Chippewa 10.5 E also (having a little extra space for thicker socks is nice). I have had Aldens in the past made on the Barrie, and I can comfortably wear a 10 in either D or E width.
