I had always assumed warranties were only valid for the original buyer and weren't transferable, much the way it is for most consumer goods.In that sense, I never understood the added value of having an unexpired legit AD stamped warranty card when buying pre-owned.However, I have noticed that some small boutique brands, i.e. those that specialize in sub $1 000 homages do offer a warranty that's transferable.I can understand how ADs supplying Grays could be frowned upon by...

I believe most 'modern' lasts are 'combination' lasts, even if not marked as such by the makers, i.e. a 9B/D AE shoe will simply be marked 9D. That said, some lasts are known to have a roomier than average fit in the heel than others, i.e. Alden Barrie.
I like this one, but the hands look rather out of place on it. Are they an aftermarket mod?
