Alden Modified Last: If You Wear, or are Interested, Please Read - Page 44

post #646 of 1086
The photos can be found in the "scanlations" link in Nutcracker's sig (originally from a Men's EX issue from last fall). I'm not sure if the shoes are being sold anywhere other than Isetan so the odds of these showing up on eBay in a large enough size are virtually zero.

As does Alden Madison Avenue (black and #8 shell). Glad this is one style I'm not really interested in.

it is marked originally $550, on sale $299 on the shoe mart irregular list. It's a modified last, I just picked one up.

This boot has been on the seconds list for the last 10 months. I have inquired about it several times and each time I am told that the boot isn't in stock and is an inventory error. 9D? If you got it, congrats.

Visited Anatomica Japan yesterday and got sized for the Modified last: 12.5c. I wear an 11.5 Barrie and TB (but TB is too big for me), so I was surprised that the 12.5c fit perfect. They had an awesome sample pair of color 8 tanker boots and they wanted near $1800 for them!

ML in C width? wow, I thought the D width had a tight waist

1800 bucks (140,000 JPY) seems quite expensive even in Japanese standard uhoh.gif

I wear a 9C in Modified but my "regular size" shoes are probably 10 or 10.5B (or sometimes A)

I think the caveat is that the $1800 boots came to Japan by way of France.  That might add a bit to the overhead.

Exactly. They had been at the Anatomica Paris shop and were loaned out to the Tokyo shop as a sample (or something of that nature). He didn't really want to sell them or give me a price, but he said they could let them go for 180,00, probably knowing full well that I wouldn't be shelling that out.

The Anatomica shop also has a stunning Ravello PT Boot and Captoe derby on the Modified, but only in a few sizes, and only for serious coin.

What color captoe derby? Got a nice graduation present in yen...

Twas Ravello. Too bad, you probably don't care for that shade do you. No idea what sizes they have, but I believe the one I saw was an 11.5D (?)

Why wouldn't I care for that shade?

Will try giving them a call in a bit
