yes moulded
CXL wingtip are on order. no idea dates.
i have a pair of #8 boots from moulded. around $800

I would pay $800 for those.  Nice.  When were you able to score those?  I didn't think Moulded had any shell boots in Modified in a couple of years at least.

nor did I.. I inquired recently about a black balm in either cal or shell.. Response was definitely no shell in sight, calf on order..

 

really odd that alden wouldn't want to appease what I would imagine is a small amount of members after shell in ML.. even in standard black and #8.. boggles my mind.

Picked up a pair of 9.5D #4196's from Moulded on the modified last and they were a perfect fit! Easily the most comfortable boot I've ever worn.

That same day I got an identically sized Barrie lasted #8 captoe boot that is so loose and clunky in comparison. Made me feel like I needed to go down to a C width and put some inserts in to take up some room.

I've read through this thread a few times over the last several months.

 

So whatever happened ?

 

Just wondering, I was perusing the list of "already closed" orders from Moulded and saw this, is it your order ?

Wow, the cap toe works so well with the modified last. Can't say that about my NST bluchers (they are super comfy but somehow the split toe accentuates the sickle shape of the last

I have a pair of 11 B Walnut NST on the Modified Last that I'm selling (have way too many NST bluchers). it's on the bay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/271522773243

Those are V-Tips, no?

Yes, V tips / split toes not NST. Sorry about the confusion. Fixed it in the listing.

Sigh. That's more or less my size in the Modified (11c is a little bit better), but I've just never been a fan of V-tips or split toes... BTW, if I were in the market for those, I'd want to see pics of the soles as well.
Good luck with the sale.

ah well. just fyi these run a tad wider than a usual 11 B. Also you can scroll right (pics 6 through 9 I think) for the sole pics - i have several closeups (although leather soles look gnarly after even a few wears!)

 

Yeah, split toes are probably an acquired taste (which I failed to acquire I think!)

I happened to talk to Rafael at Moulded yesterday and those Kudu Indy Boots have finally gone into production, after a year and a half.

 

How many people are still in on that order ?

 

Just curious.

Still in for the Kudu boots.
