Vass had a "banana last" that was extremely similar to the modified. The closest thing they make now is the New Peter.
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?
