They are even better in person.

That cap toe boot with the double row of stitching is so nice.

You can add England to the list as well. Browns has Modified last shells Boot Shoe Cap toe certainly seems to help the look

Boot

Shoe

The irony thickens.

Add me too. Very comfortable in fit, but did not like the limited shell offering. Would love more choices in shell. Thanks!

All they need to do is make them only in sizes US 9.5 and up - BLAMMO you've excluded 90% of the Japanese market.

It really is that simple.

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!

Up for more exposure - there must be more modified wearers out there...

As a 9-1/2 EEE needing a 9-1/2 EEEE due to arch support inserts, I believe I would be a candidate.

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.

Glad some people posted, didn't know Brown carry Alden, I thought I could only get Alden from BB here

Please count me in. I'm definitely up for a better option than buying my modified lasts here in Tokyo.

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.
