Wondering if some of the creasing is curtailed by the toe stitching on the Indy? I have PT Boots in CXL and the creases are not nice, but is this lessened by the mocc toe stitching?

I've had my modified Indy's for a few months now, I haven't noticed the creases, but they are a little big on me.  I also have pair of wingtips on the modified last that fit perfectly.  Both the wingtips and the Indy's are the same size, the Indy's feel at least a half size bigger. i wish I could go back in time and size down a half size..

Can we concur that modified sizing has changed over time?

I remember when a 9.5D was too small (captoe, moulded circa 2009), then fit perfectly (wingtips, shoemart + moulded 2010), and now is large ( looking at you CXL, moulded 2012)

Are you referring to boots or shoes? For shoes - I do think that the sizes have changed a bit. Look for an earlier post from me for more details.. I don't think you can directly compare boot fit to shoe fit.

I was thinking shoes. Your post got me started on rationalizing the whole thing.

I've worn Modified shell in a half size smaller as a first pair, but subsequent pairs in shell and suede have proved a little too narrow at the pinky so I had to sell them and move a half size up. Weird.

I usually take 11.5B TTS.  The 11C Modified is a perfect fit.  Bought my first pair this year though.

Looking good.  I have a pair of these (from Moulded Shoe, right?) in my rotation. 

 

I like these boots although they're not my favorites and I'm not sure why.  I think it's the neo-cork soles.  I was looking forward to these as most of my boots/shoes have leather soles and I thought this would give me another inclement weather option.  I think it's the neo-cork soles that have a level of heft and weight to the boots that haven't won my love.  Might consider having B Nelson resole them with commando or straight leather.

Call Moulded. They have Modified Last-specific insoles.
