Regal Shoes in Japan makes a banana last as well. Crockett and Jones even makes a modified-like last for the Japanese as well.
For the money, Alden is still your best bet. I will be trying Vass very soon, but I'm going to try the 3636 first before the P2.

 

Thanks.  How do you know this much about shoe lasts?!  Do you have a hard to fit foot, too?

Ahh, they joys of having a hard to fit foot.

 

I cannot even imagine how easy it would be to get shoes it I could wear the standard Barrie last...

OK Gents,

I had an interesting thought: given my wide foot, i need to wear the modified last. I wonder if i could get a podiatrist to proscribe alden modified last shoes for me.

Then i could possibly charge insurance for my proscription shoes, or more likely, buy them with my health savings account dollars so i use pre tax dollars? Make my funky feet useful for something besides shoe headaches?!

Has anyone this approach? Have any ideas on a podiatrist in NYC?

Thanks

I think your probability of getting this done is close to 0. Unless you have a deformity that requires you to wear a special medical device/shoe, I can't see them proscribing this or your HSA approving this charge (it's highly unlikely that they will allow an HSA approved transaction to flow through from a retailer like Moulded Shoe, Alden Shop, etc... )

Still looking for a few good men who are interested in a Kudu Indy on the Modified last.  Please PM if interested.  They will be on the Commando sole if Alden will agree otherwise the cork neo sole.

 

pm inbound

PhiPsi32, sorry if I missed any of the details earlier.  I'm interested to know the details of the following:

 

- sole (commando is 1st choice, then neo/cork?).  If commando, is it the mini-lug?

- welt: flat welt or storm welt?

- welt: 360 welt or close heel (I'm not sure if I've ever seen a Modified last boot with a 360 welt)

- welt: in black?

- sole edge: also in black?

- speed hooks or no speed hooks?

- pull tab at back or no pull tab?
