In case anyone is interested, there is a pair of Alden Ravello plain toe boots on the modified last in size 10E on auction at ebay. I believe the boots are a special make up for Anatomica in Paris. The pair on auction is probably a seconds sold by The ShoeMart.

Can anyone comment on the fit between the Modified last and the Truebalance last?  Do you take the same size in each?

I think the seller should be a little more upfront about the fact that these are Irregulars - with the dreaded "R" Stamp on the bottom. Just my opinion....

I recently picked up a pair of PCT Brown from Moulded. Ended up having to return the Shell #8 V Tips to the Alden Shop - just couldn't get the right fit in shell (they're a touch bigger in shell).

Tried on a few 9.5EEE at Moulded - they all felt bigger than normal, except for the Brown PCTs - so I bought em. Got home and realized that they were a 9EEE in a 9.5EEE box - a problem not caught by Alden on shipment. They fit so I kept them for sure but not sure what happened here. I don't think my foot size has changed but it's possible.

I'm wondering if something has changed in the way Alden lasts these shoes.

The eBay seller is also an active SF member so perhaps he will chime in.

Umm, did he just change the listing? He clearly states they are irregular and states what he believes constitutes the flaw, with pictures to boot (pun intended) .

The more burning question is, how would it affect normal sock wear?
