What size do you wear? You should be able to obtain the few basic styles rather easily and will have to wait on the custom make-ups.

How much does Anatomica charge these days for Calf and for Shell? Just can't see paying more than current US retail equivalent for Alden - Low $700s is really the ceiling for hard to get custom make--up boots and shoes in shell. IMO, it would have to be something very special for you to drop that much cash on Alden.

Haven't bought a new pair of ML for a while - just carefully maintaining the ones I have that fit well a buying new Maftei bespoke shoes out of Vienna. Last I checked calf shoes at Moulded were running around $550 + tax. I have a few pairs of ML that are a too big on me that I would part with - 9.5 EEE.. The other ones that fit well will be worn and resoled until the leather wears out.

Moulded Shoe usually has a decent inventory of basic styles in the modified last.

Does anyone have advice for for getting a VAT refund from phone/online orders from Anatomica (I'm in the U.S.)? I bought two pairs from them in person a few years ago and got the refund by filling out the paperwork at the airport before leaving the continent. I'm in the process of placing and order via email and not sure how to go about VAT refund this time around.

I remember Charlie mentioning that they deduct the VAT on phone orders. I'm sure they can walk you through the process.

I think they should be able to handle this for you. For phone orders that are to be shipped outside of France/EU, you should really just be charged the ex-VAT price.

How much are they charging? Bet somewhere between $675-725 is my bet.

Got the cap toes from anatomica and while they were absolutely beautiful, I had to sell them on the bay due to fit issues. They fit about a half size wider than modified lasted shoes that I own in the same size, and almost even seemed like they were made on a different last than those shoes. There was some subtle differences in the shape and I wish I had taken a pic before shipping them out. honestly it's left a bad taste in my mouth regarding Alden and the modified last and I should have just returned them, but I wishfully thought I could make them work as it's such a unique makeup. Wanted to give others a word of caution when getting modified lasted shoes vs. boots. The two pair of modified lasted shoes I own are two of my best fitting pairs, and my feet were swimming in the boots.

Sorry to hear about this - Hope you got good money for them on ebay. I've had similar issues where same size ML have fit differently on different styles. Have a pair of Shell #8 shoes sitting in my closet because of the same issue and some calf as well.

I would recommend you take a look at something bespoke or try-on in person before you buy. Moulded shoe sells a good # of boots and if you're ever in NY you can try on.
