Nice photos!  And I agree, they really are incredibly helpful and nice there.
Thanks for the education.   BTW I saw a pair of lightly used Alden boots on ebay claiming to be ML, but to my eye seemed clearly not.   I just checked and Moulded has no open orders at this time. That's the first time I have seen that.   Too bad mine is not a popular size that is part of the regular production runs.
Something else I forgot to mention -- I stopped by Anatomica in Paris in May.  They were so nice there.  Unfortunately, I had some plantar fasciitis and anything that touched my foot hurt!   Sorry this pic is a little blurry.
Moulded had a couple of dozen pair of "open orders" for a couple of years that would very slowly get added to production one by one.  Then suddenly Alden accepted all the open orders at once and so all the orders were suddenly closed.  They have a couple of open orders currently.  Rafael is thinking about putting together a mailing list for those interested so they can order when they open a new style.  I got caught out short when all those orders were accepted at once and...

Hi everyone,   Taking my first trip to the UK and Europe for a few weeks in May,  and I thought I would take the opportunity to do some shopping.  I mainly have shoes in my sights.   I have a high instep and a narrow heel, so I have been wearing Alden "Modified Last" shoes.   I'm wondering if any of the UK (many brands!) or Spanish (Carmina, Meermin, Mezlan) use a last that is similar to the Alden Modified.  Looking for something in the price range of AE,...
Thanks, sounds like a good option.
They do the complete recrafting, putting in new cork etc etc ?     I seem to recall reading that they have a Goodyear welting machine there.   I didn't go upstairs and take the tour when I was there, if I get another chance I'll see if they are amenable.
Where did you guys get those ?   Just wondering, thanks !
