If only they would listen to us...

As a comparison, Vass Banana, Bordeaux Cordovan. These are asymmetric, but do not have a narrow waist like the Modified.

P2 last, as I've said, is amazing - go .5 up from your modified fit, though. I will, when funds allow, order a shoe on their banana last as well. These are P2: wide forefoot, supportive heel cup, etc:

Does anyone who wears a EEE in the Modified Last find a Vass last that works for them?

 

Roguls - what width do you wear the the Modified?

I've tried on a EEE modified last as well as Vass standard width 3636, P2 and F last. I would think that a Vass P2 in a G (or H) width would come the closest to a EEE modified. Vass does offer a Banana last but I've never seen it in person so I can't comment if it resembles the modified or not.

I've always found the modified last's heel cup to be especially suited to my foot and the Vass P2 and F last heel cups had that satisfyingly snug yet supportive fit as well.

Selling some brown suede wingtips on the modified last. 9D, FYI

I bought the last two pairs in 10.5D at Alden NY last year. I have the 54331 (black) and 54321 (color 8). The 54331 have been worn less than 5 times and are in perfect condition. I think I'm going to try to sell the 54331's. So if you are a 10.5D, shoot me a PM.

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately for me, I'm an extra wide bigfoot, 11EE or EEE.

FYI shoe mart just released their latest seconds list. There are a bunch of new modified last arrivals in 11D including a pair of shell boots and a pair of plain toes in shell. I keep an eye out for shell modified in10.5D and they dont come around too often.

I'm guessing you're talking about Moulded Shoe?  What CXL boots are you waiting on?  I've been waiting ages for some CXL WT boots.

 

I saw some plain toe #8 boots and cap toe #8 boots on the Modified last at the Lakota House in Japan last month. Couldn't justify paying over $1K for a pair of Alden boots, even if they're rare shell Modified last boots.
