I have several pairs of Aldens-mostly in Plaza lasted shoes and chukkas and I also have Barrie lasted chukka and shell cordovan PTB; Trubulance lasted Indy Boot and shell cordovan Hampton lasted cap toed blucher. I find that the Plaza lasted shoes, especially the bluchers, fit me the best. However, none of the chukkas or boots really fit me well since I need a little more toe room since I have a D+ width forefoot but I have narrower heels/ankles and instep. My feet also mildy pronates. Never tried a Modified last but count me in anyway!
Thank you! I haven't posted on styleforum in a while, but I found this thread because I regularly search online to try to find pairs of Modified Last shoes. Please add me to the list. Alden should support their American customers.
Count me in. I was lucky enough to get a pair of shell boots on the Modified Last...sublime is not the word. At the Alden store in NYC, they told me they could do a special make-up for a Ravello LWB on the Modified...I wound up not having the dough at the time, but maybe we can get this off the ground.
Those of you the own shoes on the modified last have probably noticed that shoe trees are not a good fit. I've taken to stuffing newspaper in mine after each wear, but am curious if anyone has come up with a more elegant solution.
