And some of us need a car to get to work that doesn't mean I want to drive a Yugo

install a leather interior and your Yugo will develop a patina all its own...

all of us modified wearers yearn for shell but the Middleboro mothership isn't interested in servicing their niche customers.

Agreed

Still looking for a few more gents to do a Kudu Indy on the Modified last.  Post or send a PM if interested.

I'm probably down for this, PhiPsi, as long as the price comes in around $550 or so. What is the deposit situation at Moulded?

$1300 + shipping for these is completely unreasonable IMO.... This is a $550 pair of shoes, nothing more - looks like #8

But if that's the only place you can get them  .  .  .

Drop by the Alden Shop on Madison if you can and talk to them. If your request is simple - i.e. an existing ML shoe in the catalogue in #8 or Black Shell, they you can get it done. You have to wait a while - maybe 6 months + and deal with an up-charge, but i guess you'll save $500+ (if they accept your order).

V-Vip and Cap Toe are possible on ML - it just has to be simple and something based off the Footbalance line catalogue. And it really need to be a simple shell color like #8 or Black... You want exotic, you'll need to pay up.

I was at Alden NY and spoke to an SA there.  They only carry the black V-Tip on the Modified.  However, I will inquire further.

They had the V-Tip in #8 and sold them out quickly. Leffot had them as well - I have 2 pairs of V-Tips in Calf (brown suede and smooth brown). They are funky - no getting around it - just not the best looking shoe for $500... I prefer the ML Cap Toe and if you ask nicely they might very well do this for you... I think you're looking at $700-800 if they accept the order.. Unfortunately, Moulded Shoe has not been the best place to source ML Shell - but you can't beat their service and non-shell selection in the US.

Very interesting.  I will investigate further.  Thank you.

I still have never seen a chukka on the Modified last but there could be one out there somewhere I suppose.
moulded claims that chukka is never in modified
same with loafers

There are plenty of restrictions on the Modified last makeups.

Anatomica have a loafer in Modified last. I posted a picture of it a while back.

The restrictions don't seem to apply to the Europeans.
