Alden Modified Last: If You Wear, or are Interested, Please Read - Page 31

post #451 of 1048

Hmmm, I see.  I would think there would be a way to do this by mail.

Some retail shops do this. For example, Frans Boone quotes prices outside the EU at -19%. Carmina's Web store only subtracts about 16%, but perhaps that's because it's also the manufacturer.

Checking into it, it seems the VAT refund is not always equal to the VAT.  In France for example it may only be 12-15%.  But on "luxury goods" it can be higher.  I see the information on getting a VAT refund while visiting France, but I haven't found much on VAT refunds for export.  I just see some notes indicating that the business does not have to charge VAT on exports.  It is possible that Anatomica does not participate in the merchant program that facilitates VAT exonerations or exemptions.  More research may be warranted.

I have encountered different VAT refund percentages. It can anywhere between 10 to 20 percent, or nothing, depending on the vendor and country. FYI.

I think that this pair is just too big and I might be fucked... They were a special make-up, single pair, so I'm stuck with them.
There is one very good shop in Manhattan i will try to consult on the fit....

half size is nothing. go from there...

Sure... I ordered size 10D.....

Kolecho, the chukka at the bottom here is on the Barrie last. If you look really closely, it's the first thing they say about it in the caption (バリー・ラスト = Barrie Last). The only shoes on the modified last in the pic above are (from the top) the 1st, 3rd and 5th shoes.

I still have never seen a chukka on the Modified last but there could be one out there somewhere I suppose.

For all the forum lurkers curious about the Modified last, I have had a chance to test drive these shoes.  They are my first on the Modified last.  Let me say that they are excellent in terms of fit.  They feature a taller heel cup vs. the Barrie last and the counters are taller and wider to provide additional support.  If you are on the fence, I would suggest that this is a good time to sign on to the petition.

Is there any interest in doing a Kudu Indy boot, commando sole?  I have the LS Kudu on the Truebalance. I like it, but it would be even more awesome on the Modified last.  Any takers, provided such a MTO is feasible?

post #461 of 1048
Count me in for a Kudu Indy. This would look great on the Modified.

That's no joke.  I didn't think the Kudu Ultimate Indy could get any better, but the Modified last is very compelling.

Count me in also if this is feasible.

post #464 of 1048

I am investigating.  More to follow when information is available.

 

***Edit***

 

Moulded will place the order.  The caveat may be the commando sole.  Alden doesn't like to do the commando on the Modified last (probably due to it's odd shape).

 

Here is an opportunity to do something just a little bit different.  Let me know if you would like to sign onto the project.

^ I may be interested. Did Moulded give you an idea of when these may be delivered?
